For any home, installing solar panels can be relatively new; however it is becoming a popular home improvement project for many homes in North America. With solar panel installation, you can surely boost value of your property and also provide lots of savings in your energy bill over a period of time and the cost of the project can be recovered within few years and yet many people avoid taking up the project, as they think it is a daunting task. For making your installation of solar panel much easier at your home, there are 9 things that you must consider:
With the sea ice diminishing day by day due the constant changes in weather, the Arctic Circle has become more of a tourist destination than a place to explore. Earlier, people and explorers who had gone on a tour to the Arctic Circle had either faced death or come back mentally distorted. However, things are changing now. Let us check out the different reason’s why how Arctic tourism a threat to the environment
Plastics are something we can try to reduce or try to find innovative ways to make the production process and materials greener. Wherever you are right now, just turn around and you would see the amount of plastic surrounding you. It is one of the things which we can’t seem to do away with. It cannot be degraded and the production process globally releases CO2 in millions of tons, thus leading to global warming. Now, scientists all over the world are trying to find greener ways to produce plastics, and the latest development is the method of producing plastic with the help of artificial photosynthesis. Read on to find out more:
The sun’s role in our recent climatic changes remains quite controversial. The argument actually may seem logical considering the fact that sun is a huge mass of fire that has been constantly burning for millions and millions of years. This solar activity provides energy that fuels life on earth and the sunlight that falls on earth changes climatic conditions on earth dramatically.
We live in concrete jungles, surrounded by buildings, homes, roads etc made of concrete. According to studies, after water, the substance which is consumed by humanity in the highest amount is concrete. It’s also responsible for at least 5% of the entire carbon emissions worldwide. Researchers have been trying to devise new forms of concrete which is stronger, more durable and environment friendly as well. Now, Rice University researchers have developed a method to improve the manufacturing process of concrete. They can now ‘program’ the particles of cement into particular shapes which makes them stronger, less porous and less harmful to the environment.
As the name suggests, perennial crops are those crops that are available throughout the year. They are very deeply rooted compared to the other annual crops and so they can be harvested multiple times. Apple and alfalfa are two plants that are available in nature in their perennial form.
Algae Biofuels can serve as an alternative to fossil fuels. Algae are photosynthetic organisms that basically live in water. Since, they can easily grow in waste water; the drinking water can be conserved. These algae produce bio hydrogen that can be used as an alternative fuel source. Thus, algae biofuels can help to explore the energy for tomorrow.
