17 Celebrities That Love Elon Musk's Tesla

Tesla has become incredibly popular in recent years. The electric car company's revolutionary powerwall battery allows you to charge your car with energy generated from residential solar panels. It has already sold out through 2016. And Elon Musk is hoping his Model S will be the first mass-produced all-electric car. He's building a Tesla Gigafactory outside of Reno, Nevada that he is hoping will put production at 500,000 cars per year.

Musk is also working on "conquering range anxiety" with Tesla models averaging between 200 and 270 mpg. Tesla is rapidly expanding its network of supercharging stations across the country. The company even partnered with Airbnb to install charging stations at host homes, first in California and eventually around the country.

So it really comes as no surprise that celebrities can't get enough of Musk's Tesla. Two nights ago, Stephen Colbert mentioned to Musk on his new Late Show that he personally owns a Tesla. Turns out, so do a lot of other celebrities.

There's at least one celebrity who isn't in love with Tesla though. George Clooney had a Roadster but was reportedly unhappy with it and auctioned it off a few years ago. Maybe he will opt for a Model S now.

Roof-to-Garden: How to Irrigate with Rainwater

By Brian Barth

The average American household uses about 320 gallons of water per day, a third for irrigation and other outdoor uses. Collecting the water flowing down your downspouts in rainstorms so you can use it to irrigate in dry periods is often touted as a simple way to cut back. But setting up a functional rainwater irrigation system—beyond the ubiquitous 55-gallon barrels under the downspout, which won't irrigate much more than a flower bed or two—is a fairly complicated DIY project.

Study: Children Have Better Nutrition When They Live Near Forests

Spending time in nature is known to boost mental and emotional health. Now, a new global study has found that children in 27 developing nations tend to have more diverse diets and better nutrition when they live near forests.

The paper, published Wednesday in Science Advances, provides evidence that forest conservation can be an important tool in promoting better nutrition in developing countries, rather than clear-cutting forests for more farmland.

Top Seed Companies Urge EPA to Limit Dicamba

Two of the nation's largest independent seed sellers, Beck's Hybrids and Stine Seed, are urging the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to place limits on the spraying of the drift-prone pesticide dicamba, Reuters reported.

This could potentially hurt Monsanto, which along with DowDupont and BASF SE, makes dicamba formulations to use on Monsanto's Xtend seeds that are genetically engineered to resist applications of the weedkiller. Beck's Hybrids and Stine Seed, as well as other companies, sell those seeds.
