Marian Locksley's curator insight, August 30, 2013 12:59 PM

The damage is underwater, and what the eye doesn’t see greens don’t often bleat about. That is why the global crisis of overfishing and marine pollution stirs less outrage than, say, the clearing of the rainforest. Yet the main reason is stupid politics.

The light inventor who is poor but proud

The light inventor who is poor but proud | Farming, Forests, Water & Fishing (No Petroleum Added) | Scoop.it

Alfredo Moser's invention is lighting up the world. In 2002, the Brazilian mechanic had a light-bulb moment and came up with a way of illuminating his house during the day without electricity - using nothing more than plastic bottles filled with water and a tiny bit of bleach.

In the last two years his innovation has spread throughout the world. It is expected to be in one million homes by early next year.

So how does it work? Simple refraction of sunlight, explains Moser, as he fills an empty two-litre plastic bottle.

"Add two capfuls of bleach to protect the water so it doesn't turn green [with algae]. The cleaner the bottle, the better," he adds.

Wrapping his face in a cloth he makes a hole in a roof tile with a drill. Then, from the bottom upwards, he pushes the bottle into the newly-made hole.

"You fix the bottle in with polyester resin. Even when it rains, the roof never leaks - not one drop."

Lax oversight, uncertain science plague program under which industries dump trillions of gallons of waste underground

 

Over the past several decades, U.S. industries have injected more than 30 trillion gallons of toxic liquid deep into the earth, using broad expanses of the nation's geology as an invisible dumping ground.

No company would be allowed to pour such dangerous chemicals into the rivers or onto the soil. But until recently, scientists and environmental officials have assumed that deep layers of rock beneath the earth would safely entomb the waste for millennia.

There are growing signs they were mistaken.
