Air moving equipment can be used to keep employees safe in multiple ways including ventilating toxic fumes, cooling employees to prevent heat stress and de-stratifying air in the winter to maintain a warm temperature.
Lighting and software engineers are working on a breed of new LED lights containing sensors that gather traffic data. They could help drivers avoid busy roads and intersections, and ease congestion.
Even with gas prices hovering around $2 per gallon, Washington state lawmakers are considering a raft of bills to encourage more drivers to turn to electric cars in the name of reducing pollution.
Health advocates and environmental groups are urging federal officials to adopt stricter limits on ozone, while an industry group argued taking that step would needlessly hamper manufacturing.
The Obama administration laid out designs Wednesday to issue the first regulations to cut down on methane emissions from new natural gas wells, aiming to curb the discharge of a potent greenhouse gas by roughly half.
Clean-energy programs initiated by Gov. Jerry Brown and governors before him have California already well on its way to meeting his new goals for reducing the use of climate-changing fossil fuels, industry experts and state officials said.
The final ruling on carbon dioxide emissions from new coal-fired power plants, which was supposed to be due on January 8th has been delayed, leaving many frustrated.
President Barack Obama's determined efforts to combat global warming face their biggest trial yet as Republicans take full control of Congress this week.
"The CO2 emission goals set for Mississippi by EPA are unreasonable, unachievable and unfair," said Michael Callahan, CEO of Electric Power Associations of Mississippi.
"This is the fight of the century for us," said Kevin Goodreau, vice president for business development at Direct Power & Water Corp. in Albuquerque, which designs and manufactures racks and other components for solar systems.
Sheldon Whitehouse, a Rhode Island Senator, has spoken on the floor of the Senate 83 times on the threat of climate change and the need for change.

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources is planning to install air monitors near two power plants that officials say are the largest sources of sulfur dioxide emissions in the state.
Advances in LED technology are helping to create an environment where vegetables can be produced at scale, with higher yields and shorter grow cycles, no matter what climate.
Six in 10 Americans, including half of all Republicans, said they support regulation of carbon dioxide pollution, although they weren't asked how. Nearly half of Republicans said the U.S. should lead the global fight to curb climate change, even if it means taking action when other countries do not.
Democrats successfully blocked measures to prohibit the government from regulating heat-trapping carbon dioxide from power plants for the first time and to throw out rules by the Environmental Protection Agency that expand the number of waterways that can be protected from pollution. Both efforts are likely to come back next year when Republicans are in charge.
Last week the Obama administration unveiled a new environmental regulation designed to decrease ozone emissions in the United States. And while this new regulation clearly has its benefits, it is not without costs, and unfortunately most of the expenses will be shouldered by the manufacturing industry, as they are the ones being targeted to reduce emissions.
In a fresh confrontation with Republicans, the Obama administration proposed stricter emissions limits on smog-forming pollution linked to asthma and respiratory illness. The move fulfilled a long-delayed campaign promise by President Barack Obama but left environmental and public health groups wanting more.
Federal regulators are proposing that the largest coal-powered plants in Texas invest $2 billion in new technology to reduce sulfur dioxide emissions, a measure energy companies are likely to resist.
The 60-megawatt biomass power plant is providing 100 percent of the electricity for the sprawling northern New York base starting this month. It's the first green energy project to come online since the Pentagon's 2012 commitment to developing 3 gigawatts of renewable energy.
The cost of electricity would increase substantially and service reliability could be significantly affected under proposed federal environmental rules, the staff of the Virginia State Corporation Commission said.
As EHS regulations and best practices become more comprehensive and expansive, we’re seeing a new imperative in managing EHS supply chain performance. No longer is it acceptable to simply manage EHS performance within your own organization.
California Gov. Jerry Brown has indicated that he is likely to sign a bill imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags as a way to address litter, primarily in waterways.
EPA recently released a proposed rule to regulate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from existing power plants. Although the proposed rule only requires states to limit GHG emissions from existing power plants, states may choose instead to regulate GHG emissions from a wide range of other industries and emissions sources.
