The Sahara Forest Project is a groundbreaking plan to implement seawater greenhouses as a way to purify saltwater and provide fresh water to desert climates.
Who says that wind turbines have to be of all one type of design. The typical windmill will only work when the wind is blowing, which leaves them useless when it isn't. Suppose there is a way to create ones own wind and have a wind turbine so constructed that it will run continually even when there is no wind outside.
A geothermal heat pump is an electrically powered heating and cooling system that uses the constant heat beneath the surface earth’s surface to provide heating and cooling for a building.
Today, fuel prices are very high. The beauty of these high fuel prices is that you can now save money by making fuel briquettes for use in your own home cooking and in addition you can still make a reasonable income by selling excess briquettes to...
