Solar energy saves the earth?

Trees-the solution to flooding?

Trees-the solution to flooding?

Wilding can mean the bears and wolves and lions of previous millennia returning to our neighbourhood. It also refers to more vegetative matters. The trees and other producers here are also the water retainers for any watershed. Without bogs and forests, the run-off from rain travels quickly off the land and floods both highland and lowland.

Can we really be useful to our coastal fauna, by providing their old nurseries and larders in the form of algal forest, as well as artificial reefs and controlled fishing?

Using the energy within our bodies!

Using the energy within our bodies!

We need to be greener. So why not use the plentiful energy within the body. It won’t power a city, but the uses of 'internal energy sources' would be very interesting. New energy sources have not been researched inside the organism, but the potential in the human body and in environmental monitoring within other species, for example is beyond belief.

"Water, water everywhere - only if we share", is the slogan for UN Year of Water Co-operation. Although there are many areas of the world where there are shortages of water, there is really plenty of it, if only ways can be found of sharing it. UN World water Day was first designated in 1993 and for 20 years has been working hard to draw attention to the need for conservation, development and co-operation with respect to water supply.

The relentless mantra of bad-news for the world's poorest farmers may be lifting: a simple organic technique for growing rice is breaking records, and raising hopes, for India's struggling small farmers. The so-called SRI technique is also boosting yields for other crops too – but the good news story hasn't yet won over all the critics.
