Now a days, we are gradually inclining to solar power. The U.S is one of the countries which is spreading the solar power technology rapidly. Lately, it's been reported that world's largest solar farm in California has started its journey and it's running in full pace.
Climate change as well as the uneven distribution of wealth and resources is pushing civilization towards its own demise. This has been revealed by a recent study commissioned by NASA.
Nearly all major power plants release heat or steam as part of their functioning. While some recycle and use this heat, others waste it. In US, a mere 12% of the electricity is generated from recycled heat. And that needs to change now.
It is almost a trend among business investors to hide under convenient conservatism to avoid spending money on environmental initiatives. When certain Apple shareholders recently expressed as much, Tim Cook told them to sell their stock.
Despite countless years of research on increasing pollution, environmental issues remain at a low priority globally. A thick layer of smog has blanketed numerous Chinese regions for weeks now, and scientists are now likening it to 'nuclear winter.'
Only days ago, the world's largest solar farm became functional in the Mojave Desert in California. The plant has attracted a lot of praise as well as criticism from environmentalists who have cited that heat from the plant is killing and burning the birds in the area.
A popular argument among environmental purists is that a species' habitat is often altered and disturbed when science arrives, doing more harm than good. British Antarctic Survey (BAS) has been able to circumvent that by using a satellite to keep track of whale population worldwide.
Climate change is a critically important global issue which is most often played down by industrial lobbies and such for their own gains. A leaked UN report now says that if unresolved within the 15 years, climate change will become impossible to tackle.
Bees have undergone a radical decrease in their global population over the recent years. A group of Australian scientists have now decided to put sensors on bees to investigate the possible causes of the extinction of bee colonies.
For the past many years, scientists have been lamenting that the polar ice is losing its volume, leading to drastic climatic changes. Now, an ESA satellite has surprisingly revealed that the volume of sea ice in the Arctic has increased by 50% over a year.
