Space also needs environmental care Facts

At that time, as the Earth's ecology care hundreds of organizations and programs, virtually nothing is being done about the man-made debris, flying in the vast cosmos. The new program of the European Space ESA community called "Pure Space" is going to correct this gross injustice through more extensive use of eco-friendly materials for space missions. Community also plans to reduce the rate of contamination of space debris come up from Earth, thus clearing of near space.

This is a timely step as the nearest space being developed faster and faster. In

Singapore has learned to turn human waste into electricity and fertilizer Facts

Scientists from the University of Technology in Nanyange invented a special system of latrines, which is able to convert human waste into electricity at the same time and in the fertilizer. In addition, when using the device and processing reduces the amount of water used to drain almost 90% compared to the current Singapore indices.

In the developed model has two compartments, separating the liquid from the solid contents immediately after using the toilet. When draining the technology used vacuum suction, much like airplanes, which reduces

The climate in the northern part of Europe for the last 2000 years of simulated first time tracked cooling trend

The climate in the northern part of Europe for the last 2000 years of simulated first time tracked cooling trend Facts

Based on studies of tree rings, a team of international scientists from the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz published climate model of northern Europe over the past 2000 years. To reproduce the climate period from 138 BC to the present day, the team of Professor Jan Esper used the data on the density of the Rings subfossil pines from Finnish Lapland.

 

These results demonstrate a clear trend to a cooling of the climate. "We found that there

Birds help to determine the level of contamination of the Pacific Ocean Facts

University of British Columbia found that the level of plastic pollution in the north-western part of the Pacific Ocean off the coast of North America has almost reached the performance of the North Sea. These data were obtained after an internal investigation of the stomach contents of birds types of "silly" (Latin Fulmarus), living in the Canadian province of British Columbia and the U.S. states of Washington and Oregon.

This type was chosen by scientists as a halo bird is quite wide, which would create

Climate change will affect the nature of the storm

Climate change will affect the nature of the storm Scientists prove

Many climate scientists are doing research on how climate change will affect the individual components of the weather, such as clouds, precipitation, lightning, nature, etc. Thus, in the Tel Aviv University found that for every degree of warming in the future will have 10% more lightning during thunderstorms than usual.

As the climate model and the available examples of acute cycle of El Niño in Indonesia and Southeast Asia, the increase in the intensity of storms take on a momentum negative effects and increase the risk of
