    The next PlayStation will include a power-sipping 0.5W “suspend” mode / ArsTechnica – Monday, 23 September - 20:55

The next Sony PlayStation will have a new, more efficient "suspend" mode that will draw "around 0.5W" while allowing users to jump quickly back into a game on restart. The mode, Sony says, will save energy "equivalent to the average electricity use of 1,000 US homes" for every million PlayStation users who enable it.

A standby power drain of less than a watt would be down significantly from the 10W "rest mode" power draw we measured for the PS4 . It's also much less than the 17 or so watts we measured for the Xbox One's standby mode at launch (though that came down to about 12.9W by 2015, thanks to system updates and the elimination of the Kinect's "listening" microphone).

Sony was also quick to trumpet energy-efficiency achievements in the current PlayStation 4, including "System-on-a-Chip architecture integrating a high-performance graphics processor, die shrink, power scaling, [and] energy-saving modes such as Suspend-to-RAM." The company estimates those efforts have saved 16 million metric tons of carbon from being produced, a number that will increase to 29 million in the next 10 years (though it's unclear what baseline forms the basis for that comparison).

    Rebellyons-nous, occupation du pont Wilson à #Lyon

    Timothée Jaussoin – Monday, 16 September - 07:46 edit

Le dimanche 15 septembre 2019, sous un soleil de plomb nous avons bloqué avec succès le pont Wilson en plein centre de #Lyon.

Cet évènement coup de poing, non-violent et festif nous a permis de dénoncer la gravité de la situation face aux chamboulements écologiques et climatiques que nous vivons présentement et à venir très prochainement.

Cet évènement a été relayé dans la presse par Rue89 et a fait l'ouverture du journal du soir France3 Rhône-Alpes.

De nombreuses actions de désobéissance civiles non-violentes sont à prévoir prochainement. Plus d'informations sur le site officiel de XR France et sur le site international.

    reducing cow flatulence

experimenting with an indigenous strain of miniature cattle that produce less milk than typical crossbred cows but are much better able to stand very hot weather. An unexpected surprise along the way, he said, was that these dwarf animals, which are about one-quarter the weight of crossbred cows, produce only one-seventh as much manure and one-tenth as much methane.

    putin puts down the heat

    brashlybella – / profitable-global-warming – Thursday, 16 February, 2017 - 09:00 edit

To his credit Putin has no qualms about yanking the chain of climate obsessed Western Politicians. During the recent G20 conference in Australia, when asked why there was a fleet of Russian Warships just outside Australian territorial waters, the Russian embassy replied the ships were there to research “climate change”.

    University student discovers root cause of global warming

    brashlybella – / global-warming-fixing – Thursday, 16 February, 2017 - 08:55

After over two years of study and observations, it was determined that several factors outside of the current climate change ‘consensus’ were actually the cause of the recorded increases in temperature. The earth’s gradually slowing rotation, therefore reduced centrifugal force, has allowed excess space dust and other debris to pile up rather than be thrown back into orbit. By accumulating more material, the diameter of the planet has increased, moving closer to the sun and therefore getting warmer.
