I um, excuse me. I can’t breathe. I… I would own every single one of these, If I could. Really.
You are a

do not drown
Some more sketches! If you like these, check out my self-published graphic novel By Chance Or Providence, up for pre-orders until the end of March! :3 The books will be shipped in late April.
Oh, a lot of people are asking if I will have these at conventions- chances are I won’t have many, if any at all! If you for some reason can’t order the books online (no credit card, international shipping too expensive, etc) then ask your local comic store to get in touch with me! Stores in the US, Canada, the UK and Ireland will be stocking these books, I’ll be sure to post a full list after the final orders come in :) The books will be limited, so I’m only printing as many as I get pre-orders for. I am psyched, I hope you guys are too!! :D
Pre-ordered! Can’t wait!!
This lamp absorbs 150 times more CO2 than a tree
It’s still in the “so crazy it just might work” stage, but these microalgae-powered lamps, invented by French biochemist Pierre Calleja, could absorb a ton of carbon from the air every year. That’s as much as 150 to 200 trees. [x]
YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND. This is ingenious.
The design is a light bulb surrounded by a glass casing. The glass is filled with (water based) media and microalgae. The top is permeable to gasses so that gas exchange can occur. All of the wiring is linked to the grid underground.
Since the light source is inside, it gets scattered and “dimmed” by the water and algae. This makes it less glaringly bright and scatters the light wider, which is good for a street light. It is not longer white light as well, which helps make it easier on the eyes while still providing light.
At the same time, it provides the light for photosynthesis in the algae, so they are continuously exchanging CO2 for O2, not just in the day. It also provides a source of heat, which helps keep the algae from going dormant during cold weather (as in the snowy picture above).
And notice how I did not specify permeability - that’s because NOx’s (NO and NO2) are also permeable and can be used as nitrogen sources to microalgae. In fact, algae are relatively low maintenance. As autotrophs, they don’t require super complex media, not does it really need to be changed/added to. (I’m actually fairly certain that there would still be algae in these tanks a year later; it may need to be cleaned or something, but there would be some living algae.)

This was just after she was finished, had the outline done for a couple of months so we went over a couple of spots then coloured her.
