Everyday we hear about a green future. But some way or another, that future seems to be constantly delayed or difficult to put into words or images. Where are the examples of the new green technologies? Concrete practices, that make us dream that the oft-mentioned win-win feature of green technologies will actually come to fruition?
In this article I have collected examples of demonstrated green technologies / products that hold considerable promise regarding reducing our footprint on our planet.

Regarding the hydrogen, like I said, I guess we will have to test it and improve it. Early combustion engine cars were also awkward to say the least.
A 3-ingredient recipe for successful Green policymaking.
Before COVID-19, the mayoral candidate of New City had a vision: walk and bike only streets at the core of New City. The plan included replacing streets with tree-lined pedestrian boulevards and comfortable bicycle paths. As COVID-19 happened in early 2020, the now mayor took a swift approach to implement the plan. Soft temporary barriers, plants and benches were placed, and former car lanes were repainted and repurposed.
A few months later, the results were disappointing. Post-lockdown meant an increase in traffic which resulted in increased congestion. …
“Under the Business-as-Usual Scenario, emissions of greenhouse gases will result in a global temperature increase of 0.3° per decade — greater than ever seen in the past 10,000 years. This will likely result in a global-mean temperature of about 1ºC above the present value by 2025 and 3° at the end of the century.
“Stabilizing [global temperatures] would require immediate reductions in emissions of over 60% compared with current levels.”
