- That’s right folks, it’s technology time so let’s jump right in:
Yep, you can even 3D print batteries!
A step towards commercially viable CO2 capture.
This solar panel collects energy from sunlight while converting water to hydrogen gas.
Passive cooling idea moves from the lab to production.
- The October 2018 NOAA Global Climate Report is out and (shocked face!) the warming trend of our planet continues. The average temperatures in the month were more than one and a half degrees (Fahrenheit) above their 20th Century averages – it was also the 406th month with temperatures over the 20th Century average and the second warmest October on record.

- Last month we checked out the GIS resources of Grand Rapids, Michigan and this month we stay in the Midwest with a look at the second largest city in the state’s GIS resources, Saint Paul. And this month we introduce a new standardized format for this report as all GIS websites (at least in our opinion) should have the following links:
Saint Paul GIS website – https://www.stpaul.gov/departments/water-services/gis-map
Saint Paul GIS contacts – http://maps.saintpaulwater.com/contact.php
Saint Paul GIS web map – http://maps.saintpaulwater.com (must register first, strange…)
Saint Paul GIS map collections – none available
Saint Paul GIS direct downloads – none available
