Researchers have created a new kind of generator that uses bacterial spores to harness the untapped power of evaporating water. Scientists from Harvard and Columbia universities have created small, prototype generators by coating a sheet of rubber with a soil bacterium, Bacillus subtilis, that greatly expands and contracts with changes in humidity.
Fire seasons will be three weeks longer, generate twice as much smoke, and cover a larger area of the western U.S. by 2050, a new study from Harvard researchers finds.
The risk of large fires could also increase by a factor of two to three. In general, the biggest driver for
Solar energy is the predominant source of alternative energy that the Middle East could try and exploit. Other sources such as wind, hydroelectric, thermal, and tidal energy cannot be supported or justified given the obvious constraints and limitations to make them work.
When one thinks of the Middle East, ‘Solar’
