Making Methane From Microbes

[sound]. Stanford University. The basic objective of this program is to develop a new technology that enables to convert electrical energy into chemical energy. But we’re using the capacity of biology, specifically of micro-organisms, to produce interesting chemicals. So what these organisms typically do, they use CO2 from the atmosphere and use hydrogen and basically […]

Transforming Air Into Pure Drinking Water Is Finally Possible, Here’s How

Deserts are not particularly welcoming environments, and yet at least hundred million people live in desert regions around the world, according to the UN. They have to make due with less than 25 cm of rainfall each year, and for many, even that miniscule water supply is under threat as climate change is making dry […]

Space Mirrors and Other Weird Ways to Fight Climate Change

Today on Reactions: craziest ideas to combat climate change. Let’s do this. First up: massive gigantic enormous space mirrors. The Sun is constantly emitting all kinds of light — including visible, ultraviolet, and infrared— which heat up the Earth. A space mirror is designed to cast a small shade on the Earth and reduce the […]

‘Artificial leaf’ solar cell

“Music” Civilizations are powered by the burning of fossil fuels. Humans are adding tons of carbon to the Earth’s atmosphere, causing climate change. Researchers at the UIC College of Engineering, have engineered a potentially game-changing solar cell, that cheaply and efficiently converts atmospheric carbon dioxide into usable hydrocarbon fuel using only sunlight for energy. To […]

Kernenergie – Zondag met Lubach (S09)

Now we need to talk about, hold on, Nuclear power Why? Because this is my show, and I can decide what the content will be But also because of this: If mankind doesn’t reduce the emission of greenhouse gases in the near future, the consequenses of global warming will be disastrous, We must quickly reduce […]

Record solar hydrogen production with concentrated sunlight

what we have here is a solar parabolic concentrator which concentrates the sunlight by a factor of thousand it follows the sun throughout the day and we harness this concentrated energy in our device which we place at the focus part of the dish and we use this energy to split water and produce hydrogen […]

How Bill Gates-Funded Solar Geoengineering Could Help End Climate Change

The record-number of fires burning across Brazil’s Amazon rainforest has prompted renewed global outcry over climate change and big spending. Five million dollars from Leonardo DiCaprio, 10 million pounds from the U.K. Meanwhile, Bill Gates is backing the first high-altitude experiment of one radical climate change solution, creating a massive chemical cloud that could cool […]

Australian Nuclear Responsibilities – Ben Heard

I want to tell you a little bit about the current situation with nuclear technology here in Australia. The first thing to tell you is that Australia prohibits the use of nuclear energy. Under section 140A of our Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act, a minister must not approve one of several things, all of […]

Lightbulbs in the Desert (Powering the Planet)

Narrator: Planet Earth is awash in renewable energy. The oceans store heat and offer wave and tidal power. Plants harvest sunlight and store its energy. The Sun warms the atmosphere and sets air in motion, and we’re getting better at tapping wind power. But the biggest and most promising energy source is the nearby star […]

Fossil Fuels: The Greenest Energy

What if I told you that someone had developed an energy source that could help us solve our biggest environmental challenges, purify our water and air, make our cities and homes more sanitary, and keep us safe from potential catastrophic climate change? What if I also told you that this energy source was cheap, plentiful, […]
