No, Solar Panels Dont Suck Up All The Suns Sun Juice
Gtgt THERE ARE A LOT OF NEW FORMS OF ENERGY THAT ARE ACTUALLY GROWING ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY. WIND, SOLAR, AND TO BE FAIR TO WOODLAND IN NORTH CAROLINA, THEY HAVE DONE THIS SEVERAL TIMES, THEY HAVE THREE SOLAR FARMS THAT THEY APPROVED IN THE WOODLAND TOWN COUNCIL SO FAR. A FOURTH ONE HAD COME UP, THAT IS WHERE WE RAN INTO SOME ISSUES. SOME CONSTITUENTS CAME IN AND ARGUED, AND TO BE FAIR TO THE LEGISLATORS, THEY DID NOT MAKE THESE ARGUMENTS, CONSTITUENTS DID. LET ME QUOTE THE ROANOKECOWAN NEWS HERALD.
Gtgt I ALMOST MADE IT AN ENTIRE HOUR WITHOUT THE COUGH, HOLD ON. gtgt ALMOST. gtgtHERE IS WHAT I AM SURE OF, THERE IS NO BROWN VEGETATION NEAR THE SOLAR PANEL, BECAUSE THE SOLAR PANEL IS SUCKING UP THE OTHER PHOTOSYNTHESIS FROM THE AREA. OH NO, YOU SUNLIGHT, YOU ARE NOT GOING OVER THERE. THE SOLAR PANEL IS GRABBING YOU. THE SOLAR PANELS FOR THE SUNLIGHT THAT HITS THE SOLAR PANEL. JANE MANN CONTINUED gtgt SCIENTISTS COULD TELL YOU, AND YOU ARE A FORMER SCIENCE TEACHER. I COULD TELL YOU. BUT APPARENTLY YOU WOULDN'T LISTEN,.
SO MAYBE WE SHOULDN'T WASTE OUR BREATH. BOBBY MANN, ANOTHER FAMILY MEMBER, CAME WITH HER, AND HE HAD ANOTHER THEORY gtgtTHOSE ARE TWO DIFFERENT THEORIES, TO BE FAIR, PUT BIZARRELY IN THE SAME SENTENCE. I DON'T KNOW WHY BUSINESSES WOULD NOT COME TO WOODLAND IF THERE WERE SOLAR PANELS, I DON'T UNDERSTAND THAT ALL. THEY ALSO CLAIMED, OTHER CONSTITUENTS DID, THAT THE SOLAR PANELS WERE DRIVING THE YOUNG CITIZENS OF WOODLAND AWAY. I DID NOT KNOW MILLENNIALS WERE ANTISOLAR PANELS. I HAD NO IDEA. I DID NOT KNOW THAT THE YOUNG OF WOODLAND.
WERE PERHAPS VAMPIRES AND DID NOT LIKE SOLAR PANELS BRINGING IN ALL THAT SUN. BUT THE FIRST PART OF HIS THEORY I'M FAIRLY POSITIVE ABOUT. HE SAID THE SOLAR FARMS WOULD SUCK UP ALL THE ENERGY FROM THE SUN. I AM SURE THE SUN IS GOING TO BE OKAY. COMPANY REPRESENTATIVES HAD TO COME IN, THIS IS STRATA SOLAR COMPANY ARGUING FOR THE SOLAR FARM, AND THEY HAD TO BOTHER SAYING THIS gtgt THEY ONLY DRAW THE SUNLIGHT THAT FALLS ON THEM. gtgt THEY HEARD FROM CONCERNED CONSTITUENTS WHO APPEARED TO NOT.
HAVE THEIR SCIENCE EXACTLY RIGHT, AND THEY HEARD FROM COMPANY REPRESENTATIVES, TO BE FAIR, BUT ALSO THE SCIENCE ON THIS IS NOT OVERLY COMPLICATED. I AM PRETTY SURE THE SUN HAS NOT BEEN DRAINED OF ALL ITS ENERGY BECAUSE OF SOLAR PANELS. HOW DID THE VOTE COME OUT THE VOTE ON THE SOLAR PANELS THIS TIME AROUND, 31 AGAINST. SORRY, NO MORE SOLAR PANELS IN WOODLAND COUNTY, OR WOODLAND TOWN. THOSE ARGUMENTS WERE PERSUASIVE. gtgt OKAY, WELL, THANK GOD WOODLAND TOWN DID NOT PUT UP ANY MORE SOLAR PANELS, OTHERWISE NONE OF US MIGHT BE ABLE TO USE.
Is it Too Late to Solve Climate Change
We can't just sweep climate change under the rug. But what if we swept it 7000 ft under ground You know if you visit a hot night club in Miami, you might see some international models dancing to some bass heavy techno music. But in the near future you might just see fish. You see, that's because south Florida is particularly vulnerable to sea level rising due to climate change. But you mention climate change to some people and they throw their hands up in the air and say it's just too big of a problem. This would require too much governmental.
Cooperation across countries that rarely can coordinate on anything, let alone something as big as climate change. But don't lose hope, I mean we've done it before. Sort of. Do you remember the hole in the ozone layer This was created mostly through the use of things like chlorofluorocarbons, a component found in aerosol cans used in products like hairspray. But thanks to the Montreal Protocol, 197 countries agreed to phase out CFCs, and the ozone layer has replenished. We expect it to be back at 1950's levels by 2080. But the problem is, unless you're a hair metal band from the 1980s, you're probably not as.
Dependent upon hair spray as we are on carbon emitting fossil fuels. Reducing their use is a long way off. But maybe we can reduce how much of it we release back into the atmosphere. One option is to separate out the carbon dioxide before you burn the fossil fuel. Now this would be done at a large processing plant that emits a lot of carbon. You take the carbon and you pump it through pipelines down into the Earth's crust, to a layer of porous rocks. The carbon actually seeps into the spaces in these rocks and then a level of nonporous.
Rocks above acts as a seal, keeping the carbon from escaping and moving back to the Earth's surface. But what happens if our climate situation becomes more desperate really soon We may have to look at more extreme measures like geoengineering. Now this is something we already do on a limited basis. We use it to reduce fog near airports, or limit the size of hail. But in this expanded version we would be using sulfate aerosols. This is essentially the same stuff that gets ejected into the atmosphere after a volcanic.
Eruption. We would take it into the stratosphere with special aircraft to disperse it. These particles reflect sunlight, so the sun's light gets reflected before it can be captured in the Earth's atmosphere by greenhouse gases. Sounds great right Perfect solution. Hang on a second, there's a little drawback. You see this could cause.can you guess Depletion of the ozone layer. We're back to square one. It's like taking one pill to go to sleep, and another pill to wake up. Now as anyone in medicine can tell you, it's always better to treat the underlying cause.
Than the symptoms. But in this case, that means pouring more money and resources into renewable energy like solar, wind, or biomass. So, is it possible Well, people used to think this was a good hairstyle. So I suppose anything's possible. And we've got a question for you. What concerns you most about climate change Let us know in the comments below. And if you enjoyed this tutorial make sure you like it and subscribe to our channel. We've got a lot more tutorials about the future coming up really soon.
Fox News Lie Wind Farms Cause Global Warming
Uh. foxnews got wind of a new report that notes that nighttime temperatures rose slightly in areas with wind farms so they're in a series of segments talking about how wind farms cause global warming of course rush limbaugh did also take a look at some of that tutorial and audio first the fox clip which is quite compelling i must tell you busy pushing the benefits of wind farms but turns out those benefits may contribute to global warming according to a new study temperatures increase for updated five year for the largest winforms in texas the problem the giant propellers.
Cause the air to circulate more that means that during the night warmer air from higher after the atmosphere is pulled down to the to the cooler ground temperatures we hate work there you go and then of course rush limbaugh also getting in on the action out fully with the actual sciences behind a but will let them have their fun at least at the beginning and uh. dismantled by the way from reuters large linda's farmers and they have a warming effect on the local climate research in the united states showed up on the sunday casting a shadow over the.
Long determines the state of the body of wind power that don't you just love this hearing companies when bills which everybody wants when they are not in their neighborhood including the late senator kennedy they believer in win forms but nowhere near where he lived cuz they really see so the reality is that this is not true this just brings down some of the uh. some of the warmer air brings it down immediately there and this is a technique that's also actually used uh. ben's at orange growth now no one is saying that orange grove.
Are causing global warming and if the exact same thing and that the the people involved in the study have also said the exact same thing which is to say that this is creating global warming is a complete bars we shouldn't be surprised the fox news is very into distorting at that right um. return our connect thirty proc sql to recite the in the fall comments of the researchers there work if we expect i think the time that this is one of those great opportunities to point out how you just not going to hear facts on file they're telling you.
NASA Goddard Goes to Mars
music The overarching theme of the last decade or so of exploration of Mars is, what happened to the water There's evidence of water flowing on Mars at one point in time, perhaps even oceans on Mars. The current atmosphere as it is today is much thinner and cannot support that kind of water on the surface, so MAVEN is going after, what is the current state of the upper atmosphere, how did it change, why did it change, and how did that impact the surface George Diller Five, four, three, two, one. Main engines start, ignition,.
And liftoff of the Atlas V with MAVEN, looking for clues about the evolution of Mars through its atmosphere. MAVEN is a mission that is a first of its kind for the Goddard Space Flight Center, that is, a mission going to Mars that is managed by the Goddard Space Flight Center on behalf of the Principal Investigator at the University of Colorado. With it we provide the project management, which encompasses a whole range of disciplines safety of mission assurance, the mission systems engineering, mission design, disciplined engineers, and the financial side of this, the tracking, the schedule, the budget. So that's all part of it.
We're also delivering two of the instruments for the MAVEN mission, one being the magnetometers, there's actually redundant magnetometers, there's two on this mission, and there's a mass spectrometer, again, steeped in heritage of past developments from this particular group at the Goddard Space Flight Center. In fact they have a similar mass spectrometer on board the Curiosity rover at Mars right now. So this is two elements of Goddard, both from a project management standpoint and instrument delivery that are such an integral part of the MAVEN mission. Ultimately, I'm excited about the science that we hope to deliver for the world community and the Mars scientists.
The Biblical Case For Fighting Climate Change
IGOR VOLSKY As the pope urges America to fight climate change by replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy sources, he is hoping to inspire more places like this, the Florida Avenue Baptist Church in Washington D.C. Christian theology has encouraged the church to go green. REV. DR. EARL D. TRENT JR., Florida Avenue Baptist Church One of the tenets of our faith is, we have to take care of creation. That's early on in the book, the first book, the Book of Genesis and so we've taken that kind of seriously.
IGOR VOLSKY In fact, some religious scholars point to biblical passages such as Numbers 3534 You shall not defile the land in which you live, in which I also dwell. REV. DR. EARL D. TRENT JR. It's raised our whole consciousness about sustainability. We've had people in the church who've gone solar in their homes. IGOR VOLSKY Scientists say this change can happen on a national scale. MARK Z. JACOBSON, Stanford University The conventional fuels are actually costing twice as much because of the health and climate costs on top of that.
IGOR VOLSKY Mark Jacobson, a scientist at Stanford University, believes the United States can go completely green in 35 years. His idea would look like this In 2013, 81 of the power we generated came from fossil fuels like petroleum, natural gas and coal.The remaining 19 was sourced from nuclear, hydropower, solar, wind, and biomass. Under Jacobson's plan, all 50 states would power their entire infrastructure their electricity, transportation, heating and cooling systems with wind, water and sunlight by 2050. 80 of that conversion would take place by 2030.
MARK Z. JACOBSON Most people aren't aware of what's technically and economically possible. Windwatersolar is really the cheapest. It's the cheapest, it's the healthiest, it's the cleanest and it's existing technology. We can do it right now. IGOR VOLSKY In fact, three American cities have already become fully sustainable, Hawaii has pledged to use 100 renewable electricity by 2045, and California passed a bill ensuring that renewable energy makes up half of all electricity sold in the state by 2030. So as these panels become more ubiquitous, they'll help ensure that since The Lord God took.
Students learn that speed doesnt always equal power
Ruth Douglas Millergtgt First off global warming is real and its our fault and we must do something about it. Speaking for myself, its sort of my generation and my parents generation that got us in this pickle and these young students are the ones that are going to get us out. One of the ways were going to get out is with wind energy and one of the things I teach is that wind energy is a competitive, mainstream source of electricity for the world now and it remains, next to natural gas, the lowest cost new source of energy. The students there.
Are part of the wind and solar systems design class, which is a seniorgraduate level elective. They were playing with, I actually have one here, this guy. This is the generator portion of a small wind turbine that we have an example of actually on the roof of Durland. Its only a 160 watt machine so when it is spinning in high wind, which is rarely, then it would be generating enough power to light 23 incandescent light bulbs. Its meant for use on a boat or RV in a rural place, for charging batteries for radios and that sort of thing.
How many RPMs do you have 300. Start going up in steps of 50. What they can see with it stripped out and open like this, all of the electronics is missing and of course the blades, which go in here, and the tail, which comes out here, are missing, but they can see the magnets and they can see the windings. What theyre doing is simulating the wind by spinning the thing and then measuring how much power they get out so they will be able to make a power curve, which is the first characteristic assessment.
That you get of any wind turbine, how much power does it make at what wind speed. They think its really cool. It makes them more confident that they can pull off anything in a lab and also they can feel relatively safe working around highpowered stuff so even if they dont roll directly into the wind industry, students in the power industry need to understand how wind turbines work. How to integrate them into grid, how to deal with the fact that they dont generate energy on order. You cant order turbines to produce.
Why Teslas Powerwall Battery Is Amazing
All of humanity just won a really important victory in our battle to lower the CO2 emissions that are causing climate change. Tesla CEO Elon Musk introduced the world to the Powerwall, a wallmounted battery for your house which aims to accelerate our transition to clean solar and windpower. Before the powerwall, there was no way to store the energy generated from the panels that capture sunlight on our roofs. So during the day they could give you the power you needed, but at night, you had to rely on the grid, which gets most of its.
Electricity from coal, natural gas, and nuclear reactors. There had been some early home batteries out there, but nothing that was nearly this affordable. But Tesla, which has built thousands of large, lithiumion battery packs for its growing electric car business, was able to produce a similar battery for buildings at a scale that dropped the production costs dramatically. The lowest capacity model will cost just $3,000. And this is the first generation of the productbefore Tesla's even completed building its massive new Gigafactory, or any real competitors have entered the market, events that will surely push the price down.
Even further, while increasing the energy storage capacity of the Powerwall. Here's how it works. When the sun is out, solar panels will power your house and charge the Powerwall at the same time. And when the sun goes down, this charged battery will kick in to meet most or all of your electricity needs until the sun comes back up again the next morning. This is gamechanging. More and more people will go completely offgrid. Every building whether it's a home, office, business, warehouse, factory they can all.
Install solar panels and some Powerwalls and instantly see their fossil fuelgenerated electricity needs drop significantly. Not every building will be able to go completely solarpowered, but most will get pretty close, especially as our appliances become more and more energy efficient. And it gets even better. The powerwall will be connected to the Internet and the rest of the energy grid. Here in Southern California, and most other heavily populated places, the electricity company charges us a lot more when we use electricity during peak timethat's in the afternoon and early evening when the temperatures are warmest and most of us are.
Home and still awake. The Tesla battery is smart, and knows when electricity is cheapest, so that's when it will draw from the grid to charge itself. And then, during peak time when you need electricity, the battery will power the house. Sometimes, you'll be able to sell back unused power to the utility company during peak time to even make a profit. It's basically going to make each individual building its own power station. Overnight, Tesla seems less a futuristic car company, and more like the man who inspired the company's name, a revolutionary electricity engineer named Nikola.

GLACIER Arctic Climate Change
The Arctic is warming twice as fast as anywhere else on Earth. Its seemingly remote location in the north might lead some to believe that what happens in the Arctic stays in the Arctic. But that is not the case. The consequences of this region's transformation are being felt by the entire world, not just the Arctic's 4 million people. TEXT Dr. Piers Sellers, Climate Scientist, NASAGSFC And the most important action that we can take to slow Arctic warming over the long term is to substantially reduce our emissions of carbon dioxide, methane and other greenhouse gases.
But it's also important to address black carbon and that's the soot that's produced by dirty vehicles, oil and gas wells, and wildfires, and is a strong contributor to global warming by itself. But additionally, when this soot settles on the Arctic snow and ice, it increases the amount of heat that is absorbed, which in turn melts the snow and ice faster. Now, as the snow and ice melt, the darker land and water underneath the snow are uncovered and absorb more heat. This accelerates additional melting in the Arctic.
In scientific terms, this is a positive feedback loop, and it explains why the Arctic is warming faster than anywhere else on Earth. The water from melting ice ends up in the ocean and contributes to sealevel rise. Glaciers that have endured since the last ice age are shrinking and adding to the rising sea levels that threaten coastal communities around the globe. And emerging science suggests that changes in the Arctic may be affecting the jet stream in the Northern Hemisphere, disrupting weather patterns far beyond the Arctic. Now Arctic communities are facing the full brunt of these changes.
TEXT In Alaska, permafrost thaw could add up to $6.1 billion to current costs of maintaining public infrastructure over the next 20 years. Thawing permafrost is destroying infrastructure. Loss of sea ice has left communities vulnerable to coastal erosion and threatens the survival of a number of key species. These communities are losing the ecosystems they depend on for their survival and the centuriesold traditions they've built around them. The good news is that we can do something about it now. Lowcarbon solutions are increasingly abundant and affordable. Around the globe, the price of solar and wind energy has plummeted in recent years,.
With more than half of new power generation in 2014 alone coming from renewable sources. And some firms are voluntarily eliminating flaring and methane leaks from their oil and gas operations. Science has informed the public and policymakers about this environmental crisis. What is needed now is the initiative and courage to confront the problem head on. Our actions can protect or unravel the Arctic. Concerted and deliberate action by the world's leaders in politics, in industry and in science will be needed to prevent the loss of our Arctic heritage.
Googles Amazing Floating Data Centers
Google is in the final stages of building a fourstory tall data center on a ship in San Francisco Bay that will be not only cooled, but also powered, renewably, by the ocean. An investigative report by CNET left little doubt that the secretive project is the work of Google, who has set the project up under the name By And Large, a play on the Buy N Large corporation in the Pixar film Wall E. A patent Google filed in 2008 laid out plans for a data center on a barge that is continuously powered by ocean currents, using.
Sea water to cool the servers. This is yet another way Google is leading the world to a better place, because the electricity dedicated to powering America's growing need for data centers is approaching 2 of total domestic energy usage. Not only is this a good move for the environment, but it will allow Google the flexibility to move its data centers wherever they are needed without breaking them down or building new ones from the ground up. It seems the Buy n Large analogy is becoming truer by the day, what with Google already.
