Newt Gingrich says that if he's elected President, we'll have a lunar colony by the end of his second term. We have some images from NASA of what that might look like.

We also have a tiny folding microcar that's heading for production next year, a Brazilian candidate for the most beautiful street in the world, a stunning timelapse video of Yosemite National Park, a delicious recipe for beet root risotto, and more in our roundup of the best images on TreeHugger this week.
