the car unions fear the government's new climate and energy strategy, to raise their own car use costs and the movement of the price in the first place.automobile association welcomes the government a new energy and climate strategy aims to reduce particular emissions from road the Same time, however, it is afraid of reform to raise their own car use price.the strategy, the goal is to get to transport at least 250 000 electric cars and 50 000 gas cars by 2030"When taking into account the climate impact, undertaken by the government of fuel and vehicle tax increases, planned toll and now used energy price level, so the horizon is all movement, and in particular private car use cost increases", the automobile association to write a newsletter.It is concerned about how this will affect the household activity-and corporate activity, as well as through Finnish livelihood and standard of living.
hyvinkää equal Teboil suffering from gas theft so much so, that the gas station might change all refueling stop, a vending machine, told the morning post.the Merchant Rachel Hynninen, according to the station so far has been gas stolen every single day.a Couple of weeks ago the merchant got fed up and put the station tanks tag, which threatens to release the gas thieves ' images on social media.the gas station is the First according to the favored one of the tenacious man who has been stealing gas, also a note of after.after The retailer released the gas station's Facebook page, the thief on a surveillance camera, as well as information from our records to find the owner of the car name.the Image and the name of the publication in spite of the position of employment gas steal is not yet visible.
One in Finland, the market was also a carbon monoxide detector the model does not pass the authority test, the Finnish Safety and chemicals agency, Tukes told the bulletin.Tukes according to Housegard CA105S -also a carbon monoxide detector is removed from the market because it did not react in the test of 55 ppm häkäpitoisuus Total, the Agency tested five co alarm model.Two models passed the tests Two model shortcomings, but the shortcomings did not affect the devices ability to say excessive häkäpitoisuus.One of the device model it was decided to remove from the market inaction.

Volvo has given us the first glimpse of its new 40 Series cars, in the shape of two new concepts: an aggressive crossover and a punchy sedan.Built on Volvo's Compact Modular Architecture CMA , the new cars aim to distill the style, safety, and technology of the award-winning XC90 SUV and the upcoming S90 and V90 luxury sedan and wagon, down to a mass-market price.That flows nicely into Volvo's hockey-stick shaped rear light clusters, and a rear that has elements of Porsche Macan to it.Like the Concept 40.1 it has Volvo's signature "Thor's Hammer" lights, but they flow into a high shoulder line and partially-concealed rear doors.In addition to gasoline-only cars, there'll be a pure all-electric option, along with a new T5 Twin Engine.That, based on Volvo's 3-cylinder gas engine paired with a new 7-speed dual clutch transmission and an electric motor, will borrow heavily from the T8 plug-in hybrid system the XC90 and S90 have, but be front-wheel drive rather than all-wheel drive.
These micrometeorites consist of iron oxide minerals that formed when dust particles of meteoritic iro Andrew Tomkins The oldest space dust yet found on Earth suggests that the ancient atmosphere of Earth had significantly more oxygen than previously thought, a new study finds.Although oxygen gas currently makes up about one-fifth of Earth's air, there was at least 100,000 times less oxygen in the primordial atmosphere, researchers say.Previous research suggests that significant levels of oxygen gas started permanently building up in the atmosphere with the Great Oxidation Event, which occurred about 2.4 billion years ago.This event was most likely caused by cyanobacteria — microbes that, like plants, photosynthesize and release oxygen."The project started out as a student research project, and it was a bit of a risk to try and find micrometeorites when few other people had tried it before.They are cosmic spherules — remnants of meteorites the size of sand grains that broke apart during atmospheric entry.
Grand Theft Auto V hasn t run out of gas yet.Take-Two released its financial results for the fiscal year 2016 today, posting a GAAP generally accepted accounting practices net revenue of $1.414 billion, up 31 percent from the previous year.Non-GAAP revenue was slightly down for the year $1.561 billion compared to $1.669 billion the previous year and quarter $342.5 million compared to $427.7 million for fiscal fourth quarter 2015 .These non-GAAP numbers were better than expectations from within the company.Fiscal 2016 marked the third consecutive year of stronger-than-expected Non-GAAP revenues and profits for Take-Two, said Strauss Zelnick, chairman and chief executive officer of Take-Two, in a press release sent to GamesBeat.Our results were driven by the continued extraordinary performance of Grand Theft Auto V, ongoing momentum in our NBA 2K and WWE 2K series, the successful launch of XCOM 2, and our highest-ever revenue from recurrent consumer spending.Battleborn, which launched earlier this month, will also be a part of fiscal 2017.The report also noted that Rockstar Games, developer of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption, is working on a new project that the company will announce soon.
The economy Olli Rehn Chemical Industry Federation of Finland and the Industrial Union TEAM have announced that they had reached an agreement on the competitiveness of the agreement on the matters to be negotiated. The agreement will cover the oil, gas and petrochemical industry, basic industry, the chemical and plastics and chemical products industry employee contracts. the negotiated result in the chemical industry is very important in terms of the full application of the competitiveness pact, because it is a key export branch. This and the outcome of negotiations previously achieved in the forestry sector will certainly pave the way for other unions to reach an agreement, Rehn says the release. They lay the foundation to expand the local agreements and to strengthen confidence in the workplace. Chemical Industry Federation of Industries and the trade union negotiators must be congratulated for negotiating the outcome now achieved. Hopefully, the other negotiating tables is performed facto ropes and continue negotiations at a rapid pace, said Rehn.
Photographer: Michal Sikorski / Alamy DEBATE. A fossil fleet is within easy reach and both businesses and government agencies are working in that direction. The share of the mentioned environmental best cars expected to decline in new car sales, with the exception of a very modest increase of electric cars and plug-in hybrids. Number-wise increase diesel cars sharply, while the environmentally best cars will remain at about the same level until 2030 - contrary to Parliament's goal of a fossil-fuel independent vehicle fleet in 2030 It is therefore no wonder that the investigator concluded that his proposal will lead to emissions in 2021 will decrease by a negligible percent. The starting point must be a vehicle fleet that is almost entirely fossil in 2030. A system that benefits the climate best cars must give clear signals to consumers and companies in the industry that the vehicles today can run fossil-free given a bonus, it includes both plug-in hybrids and gas cars.
Drones may help keep the lights on and the stove fires burning.PG is testing drones for monitoring electricity infrastructure and is working with NASA to use the unmanned aerial vehicles to spot gas leaks.The utility has two testing programs underway, to address issues in both gas and electricity services.A recent drone flight over a hydroelectric plant in the Sierra Nevada mountains outside Fresno marked PG s foray into drone testing.For humans to inspect facilities such as the Balch Powerhouse in the Sierras, fall-protection equipment is required for the risky work that requires a significant investment in training and protective equipment, according to PGThe utility hopes to use drones to assess power lines and other equipment in remote areas.for increasing reliability of our service and response time to outages, PG executive Pat Hogan said in a press release.On the gas side, the utility is working with NASA s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and other researchers to test a drone-borne NASA laser-based sensor to detect gas leaks from the air.The ability to deploy and aerial methane-detection tool over long distances and in remote areas could signal a major turning point in future gas-leak detection capabilities for PG, and the larger utility industry as a whole, said PG executive Jesus Soto.The utility said it was also looking ahead to using drones for storm and disaster response.Using drones to capture high-resolution imagery in real time will help speed up damage assessments and the deployment of the right resources to restore power.
Complete with real power ups. There are plenty of students who instead of studying, playing huge amounts of Mario Kart. Like in Mario Kart as are upgrades, and power-ups, deployed along the course which small pieces of cardboard that are detected by go Kartsen when run over. Then, the driver receives a random upgrade in the form of boost, shield or a pair of arms that could be used against other drivers. A small LCD screen on the steering wheel telling the driver what ability they picked on themselves with a sound effect and a computer voice so that drivers do not have to take your eyes off the road. Go kart sen gas and the brake is then controlled in part by a computer, so when a boost is picked up as the gas in the double speed while when struck by the example of the infrared guns so the speed can instead be lowered or the car even shut down.
"A U.S. owner of a BMW i3 has filed a lawsuit claiming that the German automaker's electric vehicle can experience a sudden loss of power when a feature designed to nearly double its driving range is deployed," Reuters' Jonathan Stempel reported.When the battery is depleted, a small gas motor kicks in to generate more electricity, raising the range limitation to around 150 miles, beyond 80 on electric power alone."We cannot comment on the matter now that it s in active litigation," said BMW in a statement emailed to Business Insider.We checked out the range-extender i3 last year and subjected it to conditions similar to those described in the lawsuit.We ran all the juice out of the battery and switched over to the gas motor twice on a trip of about 300 miles.There were two adults and two children in the car, along with a couple of large duffle bags.Our results are hardly scientific, but we detected no power loss when the range-extender was in operation.The i3 is part of a lineup of BMW vehicles that are intended to chart a path toward the future of mobility for the German automaker.
The Olympics may be all about athletic prowess, but its opening ceremonies have always been about showmanship.A startup called Star-ALE is bidding for the right to create a meteor shower over the Japanese capital city of Tokyo, which will serve as the highlight of the 2020 Olympics opening ceremony.Apparently, the company has tested this concept on Earth, placing pellets into a vacuum and hitting them with gas moving at supersonic speeds, creating an artificial environment similar to that of re-entering Earth s atmosphere.Theoretically, when these pellets are launched from outer space, they ll ignite when they re about 35 to 50 miles above our heads, and will be visible to around 30,000,000 people in Tokyo and its nearby areas.It is artificial but I want to make really beautiful meteors that can impress viewers, Lena Okajima, CEO and founder of ALE, said to AFP.But hey, for an event that only happens once every four years, maybe creating a meteor shower of your own is worth the cost.
Last week, the nation of Portugal achieved something remarkable.For 107 hours—about four days—the country ran on nothing but wind, solar and hydro power.The weather helped: sunny, breezy days optimized energy-collection and mild temperatures didn t strain the grid with excessive heating or cooling needs.Of course, this figure only nods to utilities—it doesn t include the gas-powered vehicles on streets.Perhaps more inspiring than the achievement itself is how much Portugal s energy portfolio has changed from just a few years ago, thanks to major investments, according to The Guardian:As recently as 2013, Portugal generated half its electricity from combustible fuels, with 27% coming from nuclear, 13% from hydro, 7.5% from wind and 3% from solar, according to Eurostat figures.How soon until the US can celebrate a zero-emission day?
Two buildings at the site between Ravenswood and Oak Grove avenues will be demolished, and former tenants Iberia restaurant, Los Salonez and Cindy's Nail Spa 2 have already relocated or shuttered their businesses.According to Pike & Co., the 25,000-square-foot building will be built to a LEED Platinum rating, the highest standard issued for energy-efficiency by the U.S. Green Building Council.AdvertisementThe Schmidts are known for their work on sustainability and climate change issues through their Family Foundation and the 11th Hour Project.Pike & Co., as well as Lane Partners and Hillspire, declined to divulge details about the acquisition, referring to a news release."Maybe looking at opportunities where we can perhaps provide facilities for them to reach into the community."Following the Schmidts' purchase, Sares Regis Group of Northern California was made the project's development manager.The project includes a secure bicycle storage room with showers in the first level of a two-story underground garage; two public electric vehicle charging stations on a public right of way; three public bike racks along Alma; and an indoor-outdoor conference room separated by a large, operable glass wall.
Others successfully sue governments about not doing enough about greenhouse gas emissions.Aided by the Conservation Law Foundation and the Mass Energy Consumers Alliance, four teens won a case before the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court Tuesday that will force the state to follow through on its greenhouse gas emissions goals.The state s 2008 Global Warming Solutions Act pledged to reduce emissions to 25 percent below 1990 levels by 2020, but the Department of Environmental Protection DEP never created any emissions regulations to make that happen.The lawsuit argued that the 2008 legislation required the DEP to actually do something, while the state said it interpreted the law to mean it would merely need to define numbers that would be consistent with the goal.This case joins others brought elsewhere by young people with the assistance of a group called Our Children s Trust.The list includes a case that compelled the state of Washington to fulfill its public trust doctrine obligations by creating emissions regulations.
It s been a big month for trucking innovations.In addition to Otto s autonomous truck announcement, there s the unveiling of Nikola Motor Company s electric long-haul rig concept.It s similar to how the Chevy Volt works, where the gasoline tank recharges the batteries.That s not the only similarity to another company that Nikola Motor Company has.For a $750 reservation $42,000 MSRP , you can get in line for 520 hp of all-electric, waterproof driving.The Zero plugs in like most EVs do to recharge the 440-volt lithium-ion batteries rather than using CNG and a turbine, though it does have solar panels on the roof to power the 12V battery.
The new documents, Muffett said, show that oil companies clearly preferred to invest in research to explain away the climate risks, instead of on technologies to reduce emissions.Burn off oil fume flames are seen on an offshore oil platform.There is no doubt that increases in fossil fuel usage and decreases of forest cover are aggravating the potential problem of increased CO2 in the atmosphere.The research included burning oil to clear areas of fog and smog, and constructing massive artificial heat mountains out of asphalt to increase rainfall.Bigger drilling rigs, Muffett said, are an example of the profound distinction of how these companies were protecting their own interests and not the public s.This week, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced that April 2016 was the 12th consecutive month to set a global temperature record.For now, the group s new searchable database allows users to identify connections between companies, research institutes and individuals.
Whoa, indeed.We have incorporated an aniline derivative into the sensor material which reacts with the furfural and produces a pink cyanine derivative that allows us to identify the presence of the marker in the sample.And, so far, things are working well when compared to traditional and complex chromatographic methods currently used to test for furfural.These same samples were also sent to a laboratory where they were analysed using gas chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry.The results we obtained were completely comparable, said Benito-Peña.The process can be used to sense aging in honey and milk as well, although I like to think all new technologies should be used first and foremost as a way to tell if my case of Mickey s Big Mouths shouldn t have hung out in Will s van all summer.
I hope you re strapped in…DON T MISS: How I added microSD support to my iPhone 6sWhile you were sitting at your desk in an office or at school earlier this month, Jon Olsson was stomping on a gas pedal inside a heavily customized Lamboghini Murcielago and doing donuts on a glacier.I m not positive since I ve never tried it myself, but I m reasonably certain that it s physically impossible to speed around a glacier in a Lamborghini without making this face:Olsson floors it on the straightaways and really opens up the Murcielago s V12.Straightaways are no challenge for brand new snow tires though, so he also navigates a slalom course at high speeds and then does a bunch of donuts.The whole thing was filmed from above by drones and, needless to say, sponsored at least in part by Red Bull.Watching the video obviously isn t nearly as fun as filming it was, but we ll just have to make do.Thanks to the sharing economy, living in five different cities in five years has never been more doable.
