5 Solar Energy Technologies to save the World

Solar Energy Technology
A Video featuring the compilation of the discovery of solar energy technology

Via TechinBiz
Aaliyah Billinger's insight:

solar energy can do so much. they have this new charger out called sunport and you can charge your phone using the sun and electricity. It has no solar panels on that back of the phone, what you do is plug it in the wall and it measures the electricity and then it measures it out by what the sun can produce. After that you phone should be good I think that is so cool. I would like one or try one in the near future.

I liked this article because it uses simple yet effective tools. The tools are small yet portable enough to do its job. I would personally invest money to produce these products to the public. I would enjoy to have the ability of solar panel that is shown in the video.

Destinee McKnight's curator insight, September 14, 2015 10:48 AM

Sunport lets you use solar power every where you go, Just by plugging it in . It works by measuring the electricity it takes from the wall and use it as solar energy. Kalipak is a green energy generator that fits dozen of off grid energy stuff. Solar paper is the thinnest and lightest energy charger in the world. Sunraiden is specially design for small off grid applications. Solar station is a ready solar power ,battery, use internet, you can power you tiny house,RV, or cabin.

Samantha Frans's curator insight, September 16, 2015 9:35 PM

i thought this video was really cool. the reason why is because it showed how people are inventing different things that can keep people every day life. i really like the one that deals with the paper solar panel that can charge you phone in 2 hours and that was amazing.

This is a good way for energy. It collects solar energy. It also collects water. It is really easy to move. Its really good cause it has a good way to gather energy. I would invest money into this item.

Altin Pevqeli's curator insight, September 14, 2015 10:21 PM

With these tents, you could do a lot. You could build them in foreign countries in need, and what not. It gives them power, water, and if they want to take it anywhere. It could help a lot of people worldwide, who are in need of shelter, water, and electricity.

A new patent recorded by Apple provides an insight at the company's enthusiasm for a technology that uses fuel cells to control its devices.

My insight is apple uses fuel cells to control their devices, to make the battery last way longer. Also in magsafe connector used in their laptops. they are trying to see if the can use it on MacBook's. fuel cells can generate electricity while producing a small amount of heat and water vapor in the process.

stephanie mckenzie's curator insight, September 14, 2015 11:04 AM

I tink having a cumputer or phone lasting for a week would be amazing because it would reduce the energy we use on charging these devices. I also think that it would make gamers of the work happy because now they can game nonstop for a week instead of having to stop every 5-10 hours to charge the computer. I think the proucting of anythign would increase because people could stay up all night working or even all week without worring about heir cumputer shuting off. I know it wpould help students because im not going to lie i forget all the time to save my essay than the cumputer shuts off. I think its the start of something huge.

Long-term air pollution exposure may increase risk for coronary events!
Long-term exposure to airborne environmental pollutants may be associated with the incidence of acute coronary events.

Aaliyah Billinger's insight:

Indoor and outdoor pollution can affect the heart in adverse ways different from background air pollution. Minor correlations were observed with nitrogen oxides and coronary events, and no trace was observed between coronary events and traffic factors. Air pollution is no joke. It can do some damage to your lungs. Also to your heart you can die from it, if you get exposed to it.

Mining Tar Sands Produces Much More Air Pollution Than We Thought

Research shows that emissions of a class of air pollutants are two to three orders of magnitude higher than previously calculated

Aaliyah Billinger's insight:

The world's largest emitter of CO2 is Taichung Power Plant in Taiwan  produces more than all the oil-sands facilities combined. CO2 alone now add methane into the GHG mix. They have known the Tar Sands would pollute half of Canada when they started taking that dirty sand out. They just didn’t care and for this article to be published with a “we didn’t know” attitude is a disgrace. How much destruction is enough for these psychopathic people?

60% of our UK population increase is from an increasing birth rate. The population of California is increasing. Air pollution levels in California are, and have been for decades, on the decline. Lack of environmental education, regulation, enforcement, and lack of investment is the problem. Population centers can increase while at the same experience declining air pollution levels. This has been proven by factual data in places like California.

Air Pollution Linked to 1.2 Million Deaths in China | NYTimes.com

Air Pollution Linked to 1.2 Million Deaths in China | NYTimes.com | Sustainability(AGT) | Scoop.it

Outdoor air pollution contributed to 1.2 million premature deaths in China in 2010, nearly 40 percent of the global total, according to a new summary of data from a scientific study on leading causes of death worldwide.

 

Figured another way, the researchers said, China’s toll from pollution was the loss of 25 million healthy years of life from the population.

 

The data on which the analysis is based was first presented in the ambitious 2010 Global Burden of Disease Study, which was published in December in The Lancet, a British medical journal. The authors decided to break out numbers for specific countries and present the findings at international conferences. The China statistics were offered at a forum in Beijing on Sunday.

 

“We have been rolling out the India- and China-specific numbers, as they speak more directly to national leaders than regional numbers,” said Robert O’Keefe, the vice president of the Health Effects Institute, a research organization that is helping to present the study. The organization is partly financed by the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the global motor vehicle industry.

 

What the researchers called “ambient particulate matter pollution” was the fourth-leading risk factor for deaths in China in 2010, behind dietary risks, high blood pressure and smoking. Air pollution ranked seventh on the worldwide list of risk factors, contributing to 3.2 million deaths in 2010.

Aaliyah Billinger's insight:

All nations need to agree to safely recycle 100% of their human   generated waste materials. Then pollution will disappear. We have the technology, but so far, not the will. Alternative choice is to allow those who are ill to suffer and die. There's plenty of ways to clean China's air without inventing new technology. Just lack of will.

A great idea but has plenty pros and plenty cons about it. The wind is very powerful and almost blowing all the time. It will kill birds if the birds fly into the turbines and can be very dangerous for the birds.


Altin Pevqeli's curator insight, September 14, 2015 10:24 PM

This is a good idea because if they are in the ocean further from society, they make less noise which is a big problem with turbines. Also I do think there is more wind on the ocean than on land because they make waves.

If this idea is an effective solution for generating renewable energy, then I say do it. If they think they can put this into work and can create more power with this, the more the better. As long as they make it safe for everyone I don't think anyone would care.

Chris Middleton's curator insight, September 14, 2015 9:58 PM

A very interesting article. Very descriptive And is a great idea to use wasted space to make renewable and non polluting energy. They should try to add it on existing bridges instead of making new ones. Such as making panels to add to an existing bridge to save money and work time

Altin Pevqeli's curator insight, September 14, 2015 10:05 PM

In my opinion, this idea is a great one. There is nothing else under a bridge except if it is close to water. If there is nothing there, might as well put something there. Also something this big would probably also give the bridge a bit more stability.  It is a double win in my eyes.

And, yes, I think quite a lot has changed in the environment over the past 20 years. Those Texas Yahoos weren't "hired" to run the committee.  Committee appointments are made by the party that controls the House, which, unfortunately, happens to be the Republicans at the moment.
