Researchers are planning to launch a spacecraft powered by the pressure of sunlight that could be used to stay above the Earth, transmitting vital data on solar storms or polar climate change. “Solar sailing” has long been a dream for space engineers, who have envisaged craft exploring the depths of the solar system, propelled only [...]
Climate experts say a fleet of wind-powered ships could be one of the more feasible solutions of climate engineering to reduce global warming. The Copenhagen Consensus on Climate has released an analysis paper that addresses a variety of proposed climate engineering options.
Some rocks that are found in abundance on the east coast of United States could be “adapted” to absorb carbon dioxide with a rate that would slow climate change, argue the researchers from the Earth Institute at Columbia University. “In one day these could be an incredibly useful tool to combat climate change,” said Sam [...]
Over 195,000 of wind turbines will be installed in UK in the next 12 years, according to consultants on energetic matters, after the British government has guaranteed that people will have their own electricity. A grant program will be introduced for any household which adopt renewable energies such as wind, solar or biomass-based and will [...]
