Future Ecology Designed

Sustainable design theory manifested in products, infrastructure, and graphic representation. A utopian glimpse of a future New Zealand where environmental considerations are of tantamount importance, and society is designed to accommodate the native ecosystem.

Oil free economys

A brave move by Sweden towards a new energy economy by setting itself a 15 year limit to switch to renewable sources. Although the main replacement looks to be bio-fuels (ethanol) from its massive forests, which leading on from your previous post is not looking like a cure.

However it is exiting to see bold initiatives like this. If they ever get realised remains to be seen. (A 1980 referendum to phase out nuclear power is still not finalised)

Other interesting activity:

"The decision to abandon oil puts Sweden at the top of the world green league table. Iceland hopes by 2050 to power all its cars and boats with hydrogen made from electricity drawn from renewable resources, and Brazil intends to power 80% of its transport fleet with ethanol derived mainly from sugar cane within five years."
