Last year I was blogging about the Nebia showerhead which was proposing to save 70 percent water thanks to liquid atomization. Now with the same technology comes the Altered:Nozzle which saves a massive 98 percent of water that comes out of the faucet while not cutting on fonctionality.

For my Certificate in Sustainable Energy Solutions we have had classes all year long on various topics such as renewable energy, water, waste, heat and more. Every month we have indeed been privileged to talk to guest speakers who are specialists in their respective areas.

Over the past few weeks I collected a series of news on how the European Union is going fast forward on climate change. One can expect emissions will keep on decreasing in the near future, and this albeit the fact they are already 23 percent below their 1990 levels.

Here is another article published at Cleantechies on how Switzerland is showing some leadership by targetting 50 percent greenhouse gases emissions cuts by 2030. This is a bold move that deserves to inspire other countries.

The Kyoto Protocol entered into force ten years ago and it is reason to celebrate. To the official UNFCC website, ” Countries with targets under the Kyoto Protocol have collectively exceeded their original ambition early analysis shows. “
