Today we take another look into the possible link between fracking and earthquakes, the impact of data-storing facilities that make our transition to less paper possible, and a blurb on solar panels that could act as tinted windows.

As we move toward a paperless world, the footprint from the power needed for data-storing facilities might not make it as green as you may think. That is, until we get cleaner energy.
2. “Does Fracking Cause Earthquakes?”
The disposal of wastewater from fracking could be risky business. However, fracking isn’t the only industry that uses injection wells as a by-product of energy-related activity. Read on to explore the possible link between man-made activity and the sharp rise in earthquakes in the Midwest.
3. “New Solar Panel System Could Double as a Tinted Window”
Solar panels doubling as tinted windows. Enough said. How cool is that?
