Just breathe for a moment and imagine what we could create for our young ones in a sustainable and beautiful future! Without exhaust and emissions we can grow food anywhere and thrive happily....
Attempts to solve the climate crisis by cutting carbon emissions from only cars, factories and power plants are doomed to failure, scientists will warn this week. Luckily it benefits both health and climate!
Researchers at the Chalmers University of Technology have developed a window film that captures the energy from sunrays, utilizes the heat and distributes it evenly throughout a longer period of time. During hot summer days, the energy is saved only to be gradually released at sunset, creating a pleasant indoor climate even when the sun is at its hottest. "Why not make the most of the energy that we get free of charge instead of trying to fight it,” says chemist Kasper Moth-Poulsen, who is leading the research.
Antibiotic resistance is “one of the biggest threats to global health, food security, and development today” says The World Health Organization (WHO). It can affect anyone, of any age, in any country. It is a huge health problem today as a growing number of infections such as pneumonia, tuberculosis, and gonorrhea are becoming increasingly difficult to treat.
Given cannabidiol’s documented anti-inflammatory effects, existing safety data in humans, and potential for varied delivery routes, it is a promising new antibiotic worth further investigation. The combination of inherent antimicrobial activity and potential to reduce damage caused by the inflammatory response to infections is particularly attractive.
The world’s first railway lines directly powered by sunlight are set to launch next month in the United Kingdom.
Blockhomes Burundi has now contracted Raire Invest for the financing of Power One, a 12 MW power plant in Kabonga, Burundi.
Blockhomes Burundi has been assigned by Burundi's Energy Ministry to handle the electrification of Kabonga-a previously non-electrified region in southern Burundi. The area is incredibly beautiful and lies along Tanganyika's beach towards the border with Tanzania.
Thirty-one thousand families are living in Kabonga, who mainly feed on agriculture and fishing. Kabonga community is located by the lake, but most residents live on their farms.
Currently, about 3,000 customers have registered, but the influx continues and is expected to grow to at least 5,000 before the plant is put into operation.
Through the area flows a small river with a steady flow all year round. The fall height is over one hundred meters. From this, hydropower will be extracted with several modern small-scale power plants, which do not harm the river's biological diversity. At the beach of Tanganyika, the wind is suitable for wind power. However, the primary source and central for electricity production is a 10MW solar park located on a high plateau a bit up from the lake.
Since the area of Kabonga has not been electrified previously, Blockhomes Burundi will also install a new electricity network, stable internet connection, and a digital pre-payment system. The customers who have registered today have smartphones and will thus prepay their electricity consumption via an app.
Blockhomes Burundi now offers investors the opportunity to start building Power One at an early stage.
The energy plant in Kabonga is exclusively renewable, also the storage. No CO2 compensation is, therefore, necessary for energy production. On the other hand, the electrification will lead to jobs and economic growth in the area, and thus increased consumption and emissions associated with it.
Therefore, for every $ 100 invested in the energy plant, Blockhomes Burundi will arrange the planting of a tree through the Tree4Life campaign.

Inaction is not an option as government and the packaging industry strive to cut waste and introduce a circular economy
When it comes to packaging, everyone agrees on the need for change. Consumers, green campaigners, government bodies, supermarkets and retailers all want a shift in the way we make and recycle packaging materials, especially plastic.
Minnesota’s early start and continued support of clean energy policies creates a competitive advantage.
The clean energy market is developing rapidly, reducing the state’s dependence on imported energy. Biofuels production capacity, energy efficiency savings, and solar and wind installations all had triple-digit percentage growth between 2000 and 2012.
Employment in clean energy sectors reached 15,300 in 2014. Clean energy employment in Minnesota surged 78 percent between January 2000 and the first quarter of 2014, growing steadily through the recession. The state’s total employment grew 11 percent over the last 15 years.
