Idle Threat: A look At One Man’s Struggle To Improve Public Health

A Presentation By Tony Green

city 1265055 1280Idling engines consume more than 6 billion gallons of gasoline annually in the U.S., a significant but little-known contributor to local air pollution, respiratory disease and global climate change. Idle Threat is a lively look at one man’s spirited struggle to improve public health by raising awareness about idling’s impact, starting in New York City. Against all odds, he succeeds, helping improve local air quality, and in the process, gains world-wide recognition for the anti-idling cause, with articles featured in the Wall Street Journal, New Yorker magazine, and the Financial Times. A thirty-seven minute version on the documentary will be viewed which will be followed by an open discussion.

Big Data Use Cases for Energy: Connected Cars

svctss b

The advent of motor vehicles ushered in a new wave of productivity for humankind. It created economics of scale never or known seen before. Unfortunately, it also silently started to hurt the very environment that we live in. Increasing carbon emissions around the world have created irrecoverable damage on Mother Earth. New inventions like the electric cars are slowly but steadily helping stop and in some cases, reverse the damage being done but still a lot more still needs to be done. 

We have to change and optimize the way we drive, lower the number of miles driven on a daily basis and adopt technologies to develop efficient least travel patterns, improve gas mileage, and predict breakdowns. The connected cars of today can help us achieve these goals – by the simple OBDII diagnostic outlet. Big Data technologies can help us take all these data and churn it into information that can be used by individuals and businesses alike. This talk will showcase with a live demo of how today’s connected cars are driving humankind towards greener pastures. General aspects of Big Data and way and means by which it can be harnessed for various applications in the Energy domain will be covered.

Please join us for this special EcoGreen Group presentation event.
