Practical Intro Into Sustainable Economy

Everyone’s heard of Al Gore’s Inconvenient Truth, but the world needs to address more than smokestacks and car exhausts. Below is a list of five areas necessary to build a sustainable world economy:

1. The Green Revolution brought technology to agriculture and ended imminent starvation for millions. Discrepancies in wealth, food distribution, and public policy are continuing barriers to ending world hunger, but a new barrier has emerged – diet. Counter to intuition, the world’s wealth poses the greatest threat to a sustainable food supply. World meat consumption is skyrocketing. Every pound of meat requires approximately seven pounds of grain to produce. Dr. Dean Ornish of UCSF has written and spoken extensively on the shift of the American and world diet and its impact on increasing heart disease, diabetes and obesity. New York Times’ columnist and author Mark Bittman echos this advice in his columns and practice – he limits his meat consumption to one meal a day.

Impact of Exurban Residences on Avian Communities

species of birdsStudies have shown that the rapidly advancing urbanization has a great adverse effect on the sustainability of many species of birds. To determine this possibility in Adirondack Park, a study was conducted and a total of about 20 species of birds both near and far from as many as 30 rural residences in the Adirondack Park were sampled. The results were quite shocking. Major percentage of the human adapted species preferred to reside near the homes than in the mixed dense conifer forests but the human sensitive species were about 26 % less likely to stay near the homes. The same pattern of occupancy rate was observed beyond 200 from the park. Continue Reading

Bio Green Technology Defined

Other than oxygen, energy is certainly something that we need in order for us to continue living through the world’s advancement. However, we must admit that our planet is continually being destructed by people in many ways we may not even be aware about. One of the things that causes the world to slowly deteriorate is the emission of Greenhouse gases which is a by product of traditional energy sources like fossil fuels, these gases are known to be the cause of the alarming global warming, which causes the planet to hastily heat up because of the increased emission of carbon dioxide. These hazards and risks has led to the latest innovation in technology know as the Bio green technology.

Fossil vs. Renewable: Energy's Future Today

Fossil fuels are produced by the decomposition of dead organisms, buried for millions of years. They produce greenhouse gasses and other pollutants, and their continued use could leave mankind as extinct as those decayed fossils. The earth does not hold an infinite amount of these fuels. Barring our extinction, the supply of fossil fuels will eventually run out, though demand for energy never will. An energy source is needed that is both eco-friendly and renewable. In other words, one that doesn’t pollute, and will never run out.

Natural Energy Sources

As Einstein’s famous equation E=mc2 tells us, the only true source of energy is the conversion of matter. The two natural processes that create energy are nuclear fission and nuclear fusion. Nature has provided us with one primary source for each: in the Earth’s core for nuclear fission and in the Sun’s core for nuclear fusion. The energy from these primary natural energy sources is captured in a number of secondary ways to provide humans with energy.

Sustainable Technology Solutions

A wide variety of sustainable technology solutions are available for individuals and businesses alike. Both small, easy steps as well as larger investments of time and money can be taken toward a more environmentally friendly way of living. These solutions include alternative energy sources and energy conservation, sustainable transport, and sustainable building construction.

There are several ways to use renewable sources of energy and to reduce the amount of energy used. In a home, this may be as simple as replacing regular light bulbs with compact fluorescent light bulbs. This requires only a small investment and can save significant amounts of money in the long run. With a larger investment, home and business owners can install solar panels to generate electricity in a renewable manner.

Energy efficiency in the home usually focuses on appliances purchases. While this is an important part of conserving power, there are a number of other considerations to make such as the type of heating system used, windows and doors installed, and the way all of these items are used once they are in the home.

Natural Gas

When choosing heating systems, a natural gas system is a better option for maintaining energy efficiency than electricity or wood. Natural gas also provides a more environmentally friendly option than wood or coal-produced electricity.

Monitoring Software

The Internet can be tricky for parents to deal with because kids often need to use the Internet for school, but parents parents are often worried about the various activities that their children might be engaged in. Peer-to-peer file sharing can lead to lawsuits and even a criminal prosecution. Some teens might engage in activities online that are embarrassing to the family or may lead to viruses or hackers accessing the computer. Fortunately, there are various forms of monitoring software that can offer parental control.

Monitoring software can also be very helpful when parents are trying to learn what their children are up to, such as whether they are attending class or doing their homework.

Many teens use the computer purchased specifically for schoolwork to play computer games or chat with friends. Monitoring software can not only record activities on the computer, but smartphone software such as Mobile Spy can silently record the teen's GPS information, text messages and phone call information.

Monitoring software sits silently on a computer or mobile device and monitors all of the activities carried out on the device, encouraging the teen to consistently use the device for communication. Activity is usually uploaded to an online account so that the parent can monitor activity from anywhere without having to get close to the phone. This is crucial since parents will usually not have physical access to the phone without arousing suspicion.

Many monitoring programs also come with keystroke loggers, which log keys recorded on the computer, a contextual blocker, and features that allow parents to block certain websites. All of these features allow parents to have a peace of mind when allowing their teens to use the Internet.
