Earth has less water than you think

Earth has less water than you think | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it
If you were to take all of the water on Earth — all of the fresh water, sea water, ground water, water vapor and water inside our bodies — take all of it and somehow collect it into a single, giant sphere of liquid, how big do you think it would be?

Earth Hour dilemma: When the 'like' button harms the planet

Earth Hour dilemma: When the 'like' button harms the planet | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

Green groups around the world are turning to social networking to drive their campaign for Earth Hour on Saturday, when lights are turned off for an hour to signal concern about global warming.But here's the irony. With every email, every tweet, every appeal watched on YouTube or "liked" on Facebook, environmentalists are stoking the very problem they want to resolve. Each time we network, we emit carbon dioxide (CO2) through the fossil fuels which are burned to power our computers and the servers and databanks that store or relay our message.

Τι θα γινόταν αν δεν υπήρχαν εποχές;

Τι θα γινόταν αν δεν υπήρχαν εποχές; | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

Όταν ένας πλανήτης στο μέγεθος του Άρη συγκρούστηκε με τη Γη πριν 4,5 δισεκατομμύρια χρόνια, εκτόξευσε από τη Γη ένα κομμάτι που θα γινόταν το φεγγάρι μας. Επίσης, έστρεψε λίγο τη Γη προς το πλάι, έτσι ώστε ο πλανήτης μας να περιφέρεται γύρω από τον ήλιο με μια μικρή κλίση. Αυτές ήταν ασφαλώς δύο τεράστιες αλλαγές. Σήμερα, κατά τη διάρκεια του έτους, η ποσότητα του φωτός του ήλιου που χτυπά τα δύο ημισφαίρια του πλανήτη μας μεταβάλλεται, καθώς αυτά κάνουν μικρές ταλαντεύσεις μπρος και πίσω – πρώτα το νότιο ημισφαίριο κλίνει προς τον ήλιο, και μετά το βόρειο. Κι αυτός ο κύκλος οδηγεί στην εποχική διακύμανση της Γης.

How to turn caves into giant batteries

How to turn caves into giant batteries | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it
How do we build a world that's less dependent on fossil fuels? One solution is right under your feet. Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES) is a very boring name for a very awesome system that turns the Earth itself into a giant battery.

Google Earth: Over 1 Billion Downloads and So Many Uses in the Classroom | edte.ch | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

"Google Earth was one of the very first pieces of software that I began to create educational resources with. As I put it in one of my first ever blog posts 5 years ago: ”This app won me over straight away.” The engaging environment really struck a chord with me and I remember fondly my first forays into using it to support learning. It has developed so much over the years...."
