 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...

March of last year, China implemented the banning of imported foreign plastic wastes. Other nations are now doing their share to save the environment. China has been the largest importer of plastic wastes. In 2016, it imported 45% of the global plastic wastes. The nation’s Ministry of Environmental Protection reported that the wastes came from Hong Kong. Other countries that largely contributed to the wastes include Belgium, Germany, Japan, Thailand, the Philippines, and the United...

Blockchain never ceases to prove its importance and capabilities, not only in terms of cryptocurrency and various industries but also in saving energy and preserving the environment. Bitcoin mining has earned a bad reputation because of the massive energy it consumes. Generally, this energy is produced by power stations powered by fossil fuels while also using other hazardous procedures. It contaminates the atmosphere with dangerous pollutants and adds to the Bitcoin’s vast carbon footprint. According...

Carbon dioxide emitted by vehicles, coal plants, and factories are being turned back into coal. Magic? It’s science. Climate change gets worse by the minute. While storms lash the midwest part of the planet, the other side of the Earth endures drought and heat wave. Until now the debate over global warming is not over whether it is true or not. Different environmentalists and conservationists around the world keep track of what is happening and...

They say diamonds are forever and a girl’s best friend. But if the stones are not genuine, will the old sayings still ring true? Real diamonds are a rare find and very expensive. This could be the reason why the diamond industry is going through a phase of reformation around the world. De Beers – the global diamond monopolist – has announced that they will start creating synthetic diamonds. De Beers’ subsidiary, Element Six, is...

Can we stop climate change just by planting trees? A NASA study reported that China and India, are responsible for the biggest growth in green vegetation. These two countries have contributed to make the Earth greener based on the satellite representation published in the journal Nature Sustainability. For the past decades, Earth’s forest areas have grown by 5% or more than two million square miles. According to NASA, the said zone corresponds to the overall summation of the ...

The continuous warming of oceans around the world could make the oceans change its color in an unprecedented way due to climate change. According to a study published in the journal Nature Communications, phytoplankton will transform while the oceans keep on warming. As the relentless greenhouse gas emissions take effect, the bluest part of the ocean will become bluer while the greener zones close to the equator and poles will become greener. The shifting colors could be a spectacle...
