Компания предлагает для развивающихся стран водяной насос на солнечных батареях

В целях снабжения чистой питьевой водой 780 миллионов человек в развивающихся странах, компания Pumpmakers разработала новый водяной насос NSP Solar Pump, недорогое, не требующее технического сервиса насосное оборудование, которое может быть изготовлено прямо на месте в всякий точке мира. Этот насос работает только от солнечной энергии, но при этом он способен извлекать воду с глубины […]

Carbon loss from soil accelerating climate change

Carbon loss from soil accelerating climate change

New research has found that increased levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere cause soil microbes to produce more carbon dioxide, accelerating climate change. This research challenges our previous understanding about how carbon accumulates in soil. Research published in Science found that increased levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere cause soil microbes to produce […]

Switch from cattle fields to ‘carbon farms’ could tackle climate change, save endangered animals cheaply

Switch from cattle fields to ‘carbon farms’ could tackle climate change, save endangered animals cheaply

Changing cattle fields to forests is a cheap way of tackling climate change and saving species threatened with extinction, a new study has found. Researchers from leading universities carried out a survey of carbon stocks, biodiversity and economic values from one of the world’s most threatened ecosystems, the western Andes of Colombia. The main use […]

Английский производитель пылесосов предлагает высасывать загрязнения из наших рек

Английский производитель пылесосов предлагает высасывать загрязнения из наших рек

Конечно, сегодня, как и несколько десятилетий назад, мы все так же далеки от принятия наиболее эффективного решения по очистке рек от загрязнения, но все же некоторые бодрые идеи, например, как у популярного британского производителя пылесосов Дайсон (Dyson), могут помочь нам двигаться в правильном направлении. Действительно, вспомните мусорный водоворот в Тихом океане, намного больший, чем штат […]

Competition for ecological niches limits the formation of new species

Competition for ecological niches limits the formation of new species

The rate at which new species evolve is limited by competition for ecological niches. The study, which analyzes the evolutionary and genetic relationships between all 461 songbird species that live in the Himalayan mountains, suggests that as ecological niches within an environment are filled, the formation of new species slows or even stops. A striking […]

Lupi mutanti: Efecte necunoscute la 28 de ani de la accidentul nuclear de la Cernobil

Lupi mutanti: Efecte necunoscute la 28 de ani de la accidentul nuclear de la Cernobil

Dezastrul a lovit centrala nucleara de la Cernobil din Ucraina pe 26 aprilie 1986. Accidentul s-a soldat cu 31 de morti numai in acea zi, iar numarul total al victimelor care au murit din cauza radiatiilor este greu de estimat. Perimetrul a fost evacuat iar astazi Zona Interzisa de la Cernobil masoara 2.600 km patrati, […]

Taxonomic study of green algae (chlorophyta) in Langkawi, Malaysia

Taxonomic study of green algae (chlorophyta) in Langkawi, Malaysia

Tourism is bringing rapid development to the islands of Langkawi, which puts pressure on the marine ecosystem. This research records the diversity and will be a useful baseline record for biomonitoring studies in Malaysia. A study on the taxonomy of Chlorophyta was carried out to identify and to record the diversity of Chlorophyta on several […]

„Piciorul de Elefant”, cel mai periculos deseu existent in lume

„Piciorul de Elefant”, cel mai periculos deseu existent in lume

Data de 26 aprilie 1986, ramane in continuare ziua in care s-a produs cel mai grav accident din istoria energiei nucleare. La aproape trei decenii de la catastrofa de la Cernobil, “Piciorul de elefant”, format la baza reactorului cu numarul 4 in urma exploziei, este considerat cel mai periculos deseu existent in lume. „Piciorul de […]

Warming climate has consequences for Michigan’s forests

Warming climate has consequences for Michigan’s forests

The vulnerability of forest ecosystems within a 16.6-million-acre area in Michigan’s eastern Upper Peninsula and northern Lower Peninsula, about 70 percent of the state’s forested land cover, has been assessed by researchers. Topics of their report include information on the contemporary landscape, past climate trends, and a range of projected future climates. In the last […]
