Should technology be blamed for the huge volume in e-waste? With the continuous advancement of technology, people also want to keep up and own the latest gadgets. Old machines and devices that are irreparable or no longer in trend then add to the already towering pile of wastes. Dubai has come up with the solution to get rid of these electronic wastes through e-waste recycling. Electronic wastes or commonly known as e-waste are electronic products...

How can you return the love that Mother Earth has given us that allows us to survive and thrive on this planet? Planet Earth acts like the mother of all living things on the planet, hence the word Mother Nature or Mother Earth. It nurtures and cares for us. It provides us shelter, food, water, and fresh air to breathe. However, because of advanced technology and peoples’ selfish agendas, we have hurt our planet and...

Is natural gas the answer to cheaper and sustainable energy for bitcoin mining? Bitcoin miners utilize a vast amount of energy. Thanks to natural gas – an oil drilling industry’s waste and by-product – bitcoin mining has found a new way to operate without consuming a large volume of electricity. In North America, the prices of natural gas have collapsed. Instead of transporting it to other regions to sell, the oil-drilling industry will just burn...

Climate change is heating up the oceans giving great white sharks the perfect conditions to thrive. Could this perhaps be the reason why these massive ocean predators have taken a detour for finding food and breeding grounds? Great white sharks, also known as the white pointer or white death are usually found in the waters of Australia, California, Coastal East Africa, the Galápagos, Mexico, and Southern Chile. However, there have been reports of sightings of...

Fruits and vegetables are packed with vitamins and minerals that protect our body from diseases and serious illnesses. However, the pesticides that still cling to them even after washing will provide critical health conditions such as cancer. The EWG is a non-profit and non-partisan organization that enables consumers to live healthier lives in a better environment. Based on the EWG’s research, almost 70% of farm produce in the United States contain pesticide residues despite a...

There are approximately 1 to 2 million animal species on Earth. As estimated by scientists, 86% of land creatures and 91% of sea creatures have not yet been discovered. Humans share the world with wildlife. However, the animals’ population is in crisis because of our own misdeeds. First, we damage and destroy their natural habitat. Second, they are being exploited in ways that are unjustifiable such as poaching and trafficking. If these unacceptable practices are...

The world is heating up to intolerable levels, killing both land and marine species as oceans continue to get warmer. Many see reforestation as the answer to combat climate change. In lieu of the International Day of Forests, the UN collaborates with Nicholson and his Plants for Life International. The group is a non-governmental organization with an objective to let people know the importance of indigenous trees to our local ecosystems. According to botanist Mark...

The huge global demand for energy made it necessary to tap into the different type of resources, including coal. However, some of these resources have only exacerbated the existing environmental problems caused by global warming. In Britain, a third of its electricity is expected to be generated by the turbines that will stand in shallow seas. These rotary mechanical wind machines will soon stand hundreds of square miles of the United Kingdom’s coastlines. Next in...

The severe air pollution in South Korea prompted the government to pass emergency actions to deal with the toxic dust particles. Following the record levels of fine dust particles that covered most of the region in the previous weeks, the government has issued a state of emergency. A set of bills have been passed on Wednesday to provide officials access to emergency funds costing US$2.65 billion for legislation. It includes the necessary establishment of high-capacity...

 Clean water is a vital element we could not live without. To continue to sustain this resource, researchers came up with a system that could extract clean water out of thin air. They used solar energy technology as an effective means to overcome water-shortage, dry spell, or drought. This technology resorts to hydrogels – gel-polymer hybrid materials – designed to function like “super sponges” with the capability of holding a huge volume of water. Lead...
