As dawn breaks over Silicon Valley, the world is getting its first look at Pathfinder 1, a prototype electric airship that its maker LTA Research hopes will kickstart a new era in climate-friendly air travel, and accelerate the humanitarian work of its funder, Google co-founder Sergey Brin. The airship -- its snow-white steampunk profile visible from the busy 101 highway -- has taken drone technology such as fly-by-wire controls, electric motors and lidar sensing, and supersized them to something longer than three Boeing 737s, potentially able to carry tons of cargo over many hundreds of miles. "It's been 10 years of blood, sweat and tears," LTA CEO Alan Weston told TechCrunch on the eve of the unveiling.
These are the top 5 SUVs with the best gas mileage according to the EPA. This list only includes vehicles with internal combustion engines and they are all plug-in hybrids (PHEVs).

Machine learning models are taking over in the field of weather forecasting, from a quick "how long will this rain last" to a 10-day outlook, all the way out to century-level predictions. The technology is increasingly important to climate scientists as well as apps and local news stations — and yet it doesn't "understand" the weather any more than you or I do. For decades meteorology and weather forecasting have been largely defined by fitting observations into carefully tuned physics-based models and equations.

Again Bio says its modified bacteria currently eats about a ton of CO2 per day. The startup is 2.5 years old, and it quietly raised a $10 million seed round in February from ACME Capital, GV (formerly Google Ventures) and Atlantic Labs. Again's whole thing is piping industrial exhaust into a 65-foot-tall bioreactor, where its bacteria feeds on climate pollution and hydrogen, and excretes a useful byproduct: vinegar.
Candela has taken a big step toward electrifying traditionally gas-powered institutions like ferries with its P-12, a hydrofoiling craft now in production that could make passenger vessels cleaner and quieter. Candela's boats are part of a new wave of watercraft that are increasingly similar to aircraft, using an underwater "wing" to produce lift rather than just pushing a V-shaped bow through the water. Startup Navier is looking at the same categories of medium-size passenger boats, while Boundary Layer aims to capture some of the Jet Ski market (and possibly cargo).
