The Netherlands: Shaken Up

Deutsche Welle (June 19, 2013) — No other land in Europe produces as much natural gas as the Netherlands. But this has come at a price for the people who live there. Drilling is causing more and more earthquakes - and stronger ones too.People in Groningen - a densely populated area in the northern Netherlands - live directly above Europe's biggest natural gas field. They've got used to the odd rumble or two, but this year alone 20 earthquakes have shaken the region. Now The Dutch Oil Company (NAM) has announced it wants to increase its rate of gas extraction. Thus far, the quakes have been relatively low in magnitude, but scientists warn this is likely to change. Angry homeowners, complaining of cracked walls and roofs, are demanding the plans be reconsidered.

How Ford and Heinz Will Make Cars Out of Tomatoes This Summer

TheStreet (June 10, 2014) — Ford and Heinz are teaming up to find a new use for tomatoes: car parts. Together, the automaker and food processing company plan to fund research to explore the use of tomato fiber as a sustainable bio-plastic material for use in vehicle manufacturing. Researchers are currently testing the durability of dried tomato skins for use in wiring brackets within the hood or as a storage bin in the center console. Use of the food processing byproduct would fulfil Ford’s goal of reducing the use of petrochemicals in its manufacturing process. Already, Ford has integrated the use of other recycled and bio-based materials including coconuts, cotton, rice hulls and soy. Video provided by TheStreet
