New Zealand Oil Spill to Get Worse; Officials Fear Rena May Sink. Potential environmental disaster as the ship is lodged on a major reef off the Kiwi coast.
Trees Cool the Climate…Isn’t That Cool?
Researchers from Carnegie’s Global Ecology department found that evaporation of water from trees not only cools things locally, but also globally, as well. The cycle produces clouds that reflect sunlight, meaning less energy (heat) makes landfall. The net result? Cooling.
New Zealand oil spill should highlight the death of world’s coral reefs:
Containment and clean up of New Zealand’s worst ever environmental disaster are on their way in the Bay of Plenty after a Liberian cargo ship ran aground on a coral reef and began leaking fuel oil late last week.
Hopefully this disaster in New Zealand will bring more attention to the plight of coral reefs around the world, which are vital to local – as well as global – ecologies and economies.
Hi everyone!! I don’t agree with nuclear power. Now we can economize and cut 15% electric power without nuclear power in Japan. I think we should develop thermal ,water, wind power and we can live by only thermal ,water, wind power. Since Fukushima , all people knew nuclear fear. Now we should change!!
Barbie Ends Troubled Relationship With Deforestation:
Barbie is moving her dream house out of the Indonesian rainforest. On Wednesday, toy maker Mattel announced that it will stop using paper products from companies “that are known to be involved in deforestation.” This comes after a major Greenpeace campaign to convince the toy giant to ditch problematic packaging, specifically paper from the company Asia Pulp & Paper. Below is a video Greenpeace had made to bring public awareness to this campaign .
Coral Reefs are depleting in result of careless human interaction. The largest problem is that people are destroying reefs by bottom trawling. This scraps the ocean floor and destroys many habitats for other organisms. Also, pollution is a large issue. The most common is oil spills and carelessness of trash dumping.
Coral Reefs are dying off due to human activities such as: oil spills, bottom trawling, and blasting of harbors. It is truly a spectacle and the more coral reefs die off, the more fish will die off because there shelter is destroyed. The more we use natural resources the more we kill the resources overuse is possible.
Now in Japan nuclear generation are stopped. We economize on power. Because many company like TOYOTA also economize by stopping producing, companies benefit was reduced. So many workers became unemployed.
Change sorts of energy is very difficult. I like game, TV, PC,many electric appliances. I can not image no electric appliances life !!
