Las Micorrizas, los biofertilizadores naturales del suelo | ECOagricultor | Ambientales | Scoop.it
La Tierra no es algo inerte, precisamente son los organismos que en ella viven los que hacen posible su fertilidad natural. Entre ellos vive un tipo de hongo formador de “micorrizas” que son nuestros grandes aliados ocultos de las plantas cultivadas.

Convert Your Bicycle Into A Solar Electric Bike With This Gadget | Tranqila

Convert Your Bicycle Into A Solar Electric Bike With This Gadget | Tranqila | Ambientales | Scoop.it

The basic idea is that as long as the bike is out in the sun, either in motion or parked, it will be able to store continuous electricity for the battery. As per Daymak, one hour of exposure to the sunlight will allow for charge worth one kilometer of battery power. The second component of the system also comes equipped with the solar panels and is affixed at the handlebar. This controller monitors features such as how much motor assistance is required. The communication between the controller and motor is wireless, and both can be charged via a charger which is part of the package.

A fully transparent solar cell that could make every window and screen a power source | ExtremeTech

A fully transparent solar cell that could make every window and screen a power source | ExtremeTech | Ambientales | Scoop.it
Researchers at Michigan State University have created a fully transparent solar concentrator, which could turn any window or sheet of glass (like your smartphone's screen) into a photovoltaic solar cell. Unlike other 'transparent' solar cells that we've reported on in the past, which are actually quite colorful and opaque, this one really is transparen. The team are confident that the transparent solar panels can be efficiently deployed in a wide range of settings, from

Hundreds of Exoplanets, A Handful Right for Life

Of the 1,780 confirmed planets beyond our solar system, as many as 16 are located in their star’s habitable zone, where conditions are neither too hot nor too cold to support life. Size also matters: A planet that’s too small can’t maintain an atmosphere; one that’s too large will have a crushing atmosphere. A newly detected planet 493 light-years from Earth, Kepler-186f is close to Earth's size and is located in its solar system's habitable zone.

These self-cooling walls could replace air conditioning | CityMetric

These self-cooling walls could replace air conditioning | CityMetric | Ambientales | Scoop.it
Air Conditioning is not a particularly eco-friendly technology. Yes, it cools down the room you're sitting in, but the energy used (around 200bn kilowatt hours of power per year in the US alone) contributes to global warming.  As the planet gets incrementally hotter, the effect will be depressingly self-perpetuating: hotter air will result in more AC usage, which will create more heat, ad infinitum.

Surreal Photos Show How Modern Agriculture Looks Nothing Like Traditional Farms

Surreal Photos Show How Modern Agriculture Looks Nothing Like Traditional Farms | Ambientales | Scoop.it

Cutting-edge agriculture combines ancient techniques with innovations and extraordinary scale. The result can look like science fiction.

German photographer Henrik Spohler recently documented agricultural methods including the genetic engineering of plants by scientists in Germany, "gigantic outdoor monocultures in the United States," and farming "under glass and plastic in the Netherlands and Spain" to show "places where man has assumed the role of Creator."

Bacterias farmacorresistentes en plantas depuradoras de aguas residuales | Ambientales | Scoop.it

 El equipo del ingeniero ambiental Pedro Álvarez, de la Universidad Rice, encontró "supermicrobios" portando el gen NDM-1, un gen que confiere resistencia a múltiples fármacos y que fue identificado por vez primera en la India en 2010, en las aguas residuales desinfectadas con cloro.

El gen NDM-1 es capaz de hacer que bacterias comunes tales como la E. coli, la K. pneumoniae, y la bacteria conocida popularmente como salmonela, sean resistentes incluso a los antibióticos mas fuertes disponibles.
