Removing atmospheric CO2 is critical because we are currently at a level not seen since before humans evolved. For about 800,000 years, until the Industrial Revolution, global CO2 levels were, on average, 280 ppm. That's the level at which our species and civilization evolved, and the optimal level needed to cement a healthy future for our planet. That level of CO2 should also be the stated goal of the Green New Deal (GND).Read More
In early February, Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) introduced the Green New Deal (GND), a sweeping resolution that addresses the dual challenges of income inequality and climate change, and the first government policy document aimed at curbing climate change as one of its goals.Read More
A recent study, published in the Journal of Experimental Biology , discovered that the amount of oxygen available to marine invertebrates – squids, crabs and octopuses – may be a key element that enables their vision.Read More
The Lancet Commission report presents data documenting pollution and pollution-related disease. According are concentrated among the poor and contribute to the intergenerational perpetuation of poverty. Pollution related disease can result in lost income and increased health-care costs, thus imposing disproportionately great economic burdens on poor families and communities.Read More
The costs of pollution-related disease are often overlooked and undercounted. But they are associated with non-communicable diseases of long latency. These extend over many years, are spread across large populations, and are not captured by standard economic indicators.Read More
The renewables targets line up with China’s international climate commitments. The government announced it would lower the carbon intensity of its economy 40-45 percent below 2005 levels. Under the Paris Agreement, China has pledged to peak its carbon dioxide emissions by 2030.Read More
The development of nuclear power was a really great start. But sooner than later, researchers realized it is not feasible, as it releases dangerous radiation. But a natural phenomenon known as sonoluminescence could allow us to duplicate the power of the stars. Until then, we still have solar panels as a clean way to produce energy. Wind power catches up, but it is still not considered as a reliable energy source due to high maintenance costs. Furthermore, there is the ocean thermal energy conversion and the ongoing development of hydrogen fuel cells. Looking further into the future, antimatter could also be viable solution. Research on antimatter is a priority, as it could provide us with much of the power we need. Too bad that it is very little of it in the universe – but it can be produced in laboratories.Read More
Most plastics are derived from propylene, a simple chemical component of petroleum. When heated up in the presence of a catalyst, individual chemical units monomers of propylene link together by forming extremely strong carbon-carbon bonds with each other. This results in polymers long chains of monomers called polypropyleneRead More
Geothermal energy is a major source of energy in Iceland – about 25 percent of the country's electricity generated from tapping the Earth's heat, according to the National Energy Authority of Iceland. And about 90 percent of the households are heated with geothermal energy.Read More
We need 12,000 Beta Field Testers for a 1 year free-test of our MAPS TSP Devices,
installed in each Tester’s home or SME, whereby, a year’s worth of electricity, equates to
$3,000.00 (the average US kWh charges), is provided in exchange for your
genuine participation in the Field Test program.
