Green Revolution

Green Revolution is a website from the National Science Foundation, an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950 "to promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare; to secure the national defense…". It is based in Virginia, USA.

Green Revolution was created in 2010 with the idea of promoting a fresh take on cutting edge research to develop and improve the use of clean energy sources. To do so, information is presented around a series of short videos around different topics: city car; green roofs; electric vehicles; microbes; wind; solar; and so on.

All in all, Green Revolution allows us to develop our listening skills while getting acquainted with environmental topics and the new technology that will make the Earth a cleaner planet. Transcripts are forthcoming.
