City clean up with nanotechnology

City clean up with nanotechnology

Posted Mon, 19 May 2014 08:40:00 GMT by JW Dowey

We suffer in cities. To alleviate the pollution that affects our lives, new technologies are beginning to relieve us of traffic emissions, although the removal of large vehicles is another useful move that some more enlightened cities have achieved.

Carbon destroys ocean life as well as our climate

Carbon destroys ocean life as well as our climate

Posted Tue, 15 Apr 2014 06:45:00 GMT by Paul Robinson

Air pollution is rarely linked to water pollution, but the strong links will soon be obvious, just as the surface air movement is influenced by the ocean currents and the temperatures of both. While scientific models can tell us what is going to happen as the earth warms, climate change will also be influenced by small so far neglected fluctuations in chemistry such as these pH changes in our oceans, affecting billions of creatures, and of course, us.

Ecological challenges in Central Asia

One of the gravest global environmental disasters of modern times is the tragedy of the Aral Sea facing the countries of Central Asia and their population of some 60 million.

The gas explosion that brought down two Harlem apartments, and killed at least seven, is the awful face of a long-running problem – one with global ramifications.

We have enough pollutants already, but 4 newly-discovered ozone-destroyers could be the most dangerous yet, if we can’t find where they come from.

We have written on the disaster that is tar sand waste, but now several more problems are being noticed, when, to be honest, they should have been included in a thorough investigation on these processes before they were initiated.

When will the bees and other helpful insects be protected in the same way as (some) mammals and birds? It's obvious that the fruit industries will collapse without them, so for the most selfish of reasons, we know we have to try and preserve these species. Unfortunately, there are always those who suffer from short sight, or simply greed for bigger and bigger short-term profits.

Is the incredible damage and loss of life in the Philippines linked to more severe storms as our climate changes? Credibility of any detractors seems lacking, as we wait for even more signals that we need to construct strong solutions at Warsaw, and not wait until Paris in 2015.

When nations export their fossil fuels, it is normally impossible to prescribe how much carbon dioxide (and the rest) will be released, stored or 'mitigated'. In this case, though, we should not be simply hiding our heads in the tar sand.

We must have a look at western cities and their special problems before we begin criticising the admittedly awful pollution that surrounds some other urban and deforested areas. The European Environmental Agency takes great care to remind us of their problems.

CCS or going renewable? The answer is now obvious

The battle within the carbon emission lobbies is probably over. The rush in China and Europe, especially, to develop more efficient renewable energies has overtaken the old ideas of capturing carbon dioxide and ''hiding it.''

Laurie Johnson and her colleagues work hard to impress upon her government and the US public that their energy addiction cannot continue with fossil fuels. The only future seems to be renewable. For some, the future has been blackened with environmental disaster. Perhaps that will help to change the stubborn politicians' minds.

When push comes to shove, the cross-boundary politics of central Asia have to resolve a nightmare situation where pollution incidents affect even everyday lives. Here, an ancient aluminium plant stands in the way of any accord between two neighbours.

When your average whale hears the medium frequency noises emitted by many naval vessels, the response varies from speedy and deep diving to almost null response. There is no excuse, however, for ignoring the obviously complex creature and the damage to feeding success when populations are reduced as low as they are.
