With electricity prices rising across the country at the fastest pace in years, the city of Burlington, Vt., looks well-prepared for the future.
On Monday, the largest city in Vermont announced that it now has 100% renewable energy — from biomass, wind, hydro — to meet the needs of its 42,000 residents.
wow… now if the rest of the world could follow maybe humanity won’t kill itself
FIRST US CITY. NOT WORLDWIDE. OTHER COUNTRIES ARE WAAAAAYYYY AHEAD OF US IN RENEWABLE ENERGY FOR THE RECORDDDD.
Where’s that photo where scientists quietly remind everyone that renewable energy is ready to go any time now..

#this is the moment when johanna fell in love with katniss#because she thought katniss was loving the attention and everything#but she saw that in the end katniss was just a little scared girl#just like she had been when she was reaped#and that’s when she saw the strength of katniss#how had she survived the games#and that’s why this is the beginning of their relationship#make him pay for it#give him hell#because these queens are gonna bring down his dictatorship (via alan713ch)
Emma-Rose Gibson can see clearly no more than three centimetres in front of her, but a new device is allowing the nine-year-old Ottawa girl to watch TV.
The legally blind Grade 4 student, who is diagnosed with optic nerve hypoplasia, is one of the first users of the eSight eyewear, a pair of computerized glasses officially launched Tuesday in Toronto.
The device — made by Ottawa-based eSight Corporation — reconfigures images captured by its high-definition camera in a way to optimize a user’s vision. The processed images are then fed into two LED screens in front of the user’s eyes.
Gibson, who has been using the device since May, said it allows her to participate fully in class and grants her a degree of mobility she didn’t have before.
