The progress of science and technology has made our lives very easy but at the same time, it has immensely contributed to the ever-increasing environmental pollution and as a result, it has increased the need for recycling objects. Nowadays, recycling plastic bottles, rubber materials or other disposable items has become quite common but many of us have never heard about recycling carbon dioxide to make fuel. Recycling this harmful gas, which causes maximum damage to our atmosphere, is a relatively new idea, but if this process gains momentum then it has the potentiality to solve more than half of the problem associated with air pollution.
With everything becoming increasingly recyclable these days, it doesn’t come as a surprise to find out that several scientists and researchers around the world are finding out new ways, inventing new technologies and creating new prototypes in order to create clean energy from one of the most useless items (or we thought so until now) on earth, human waste!
The ever increasing demand for power has made us look out for alternate forms of renewable energy like solar power, hydro-electric power, geo-thermal power and wind power etc. One such renewable source of energy that has been gaining popularity over the past few years is the Piezoelectric Technology that generates power from the electromagnetic properties of some minerals found on earth.
Hydrogen is the fuel of the future as it is friendly to the environment, unlike other fuel sources that emit harmful gases into the atmosphere to add to global warming. Thus, this clean green source of power is being excellently utilized in some upcoming vehicles that run on hydrogen fuel cells. Check out some of these hydrogen-powered, zero-emission rides being introduced in the auto market.
What’s happening right now? There has been an increased use of non-recyclable resources to generate energy and now that these resources have started depleting so fast, people have been turning toward newer and natural sources of energy, such as solar and wind. Governments in several countries have been investing in energy generation projects through natural resources. In this line, we always need more efficient and cleaner power sources that could meet the global energy requirements, without depending on non-renewable energy sources. One such development that has been taking place is in the area of wave energy that is transported by ocean surface waves.
In the circle of scientists, geoengineering is considered to be a set of techniques to artificially reduce global warming. The constant damage to the environment through man-made changes to nature and human activities needs to be stopped at some point. But, deliberately cooling the earth through geoengineering seems to be more harmful than useful to many scientists who are strictly opposing this idea. Let’s assess here some advantages and disadvantages of various geoengineering techniques.
We all know that global warming is real and the day is not far away when it will cause the polar icecaps to meltdown and will result in many low lying coastal areas to get submerged in seawater. The latest studies revealed that the meltdown of a small portion of glaciers around the world has already caused the sea level to go up a little bit and if this meltdown continues at the present rate, then inundated cities will longer remain a distant future. Besides submerging the coastal areas, global warming will also result in other natural calamities like hurricanes, tsunamis and flood due to lashing rainfalls. With the possibility [...]
Of late, green has been the in thing. This has been seeping into home décor as well. People are reconstructing and renovating homes to environment friendly homes. A lot of technology has been brought out in the market to help homeowners to go green. In fact, every other person is slowly becoming environment conscious. In fact, environment friendly homes are much more beautiful as compared to others. It is a good idea to turn into an environment friendly homes but it isn’t easy to do so. You need to read a lot of stuff first to understand how to make an environmentally friendly house.
