Terra Verde – July 18, 2014

Nearby Silicon Valley is often celebrated for being a hotbed of innovative tech companies that are making the world a better place. Today we tackle tech from an environmental angle, pinpointing one of the hottest buzzwords of the day: The Internet of Things. The marriage of sensors and software means smart cities, smart roads, smart energy grids, smart agriculture, smart waste management… or does it? Will the IoT save us by making our modern lifestyles more efficient and sustainable or drown us in hard-to-fix gadgets and more planned obsolescence? Tune in to hear David Pomerantz of Greenpeace, Kyle Wiens of iFixit, and Sara Gutterman of Green Builder Media take on the IoT with host Laura Garzon Chica.
