Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

  Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental disorder that could develop after someone experiences a traumatic event. PTSD can develop following an event that could threaten your safety, or that may look like it could threaten your safety. Most people associate PTSD with rape and battle-scarred soldiers—and military combat is the most common cause … Continue reading Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Multiple Personality Disorder

  Multiple personality disorder is a lack of     connection in feelings, memories, identity, etc. Also known as Dissociative Identity Disorder. Many people experience a very mild dissociation, causing one to daydream or “get lost” in ones own thoughts. Going beyond the mild dissociation many people experience, this where people with multiple personalities tend … Continue reading Multiple Personality Disorder

Climate change forces Alaskan fish to change breeding behavior?

The three-spined stickleback fish is a well known fish to Alaskans it has two pointy spikes on its back and it is a yellowish brown color. It is located in the Pacific Ocean and some salt water lakes near Alaska. The first recorded spotting of the stickleback was in 1964. The rates of fish being … Continue reading Climate change forces Alaskan fish to change breeding behavior?

Solar Energy Power!!!

We are in a modern, contemporary point of time, hence humanity has the technology to appease all of our energy-related needs via solar power. Solar power is a carbon-free, clean electricity created from the heat of radiation expelled from the sun. The sun produces an extremely large amount of heat and radiation, but almost all of it is lost through the atmosphere, clouds, Earth’s small size, and the great distance between the sun and Earth. Currently, solar energy can be acquired by using either concentrating collectors, flat-plate collectors, or photovoltaic cells. All three can take up a lot of space.

Flat plate-collectors are much more common and have a varying efficiency between 20 and 80 percent. In a very hot and sunny place (near the equator), one collector needs more than 400 square feet for one person’s energy-related needs to be satisfied. In spite of this, the energy we receive is still an immense amount. If this energy is properly utilized, it can completely and fully provide enough power for the whole planet. As of 2011, the worldwide demand for energy was around 363 terawatt-hours per day; this can be met by covering a portion of one percent of the Earth’s land in silicon solar panels, not that we can’t save space by building on the ocean. The third way of collecting solar energy is with photovoltaic cells, which are less common. They produce only 2 watts each, although can collect many kilowatts in large arrays. They have a low efficiency of 15 to 20 percent. Solar panels have been shown to be more effective. Because of all of this, it is predicted that all of mankind’s energy will come from the sun in the future.

Solar panels are typically flat, colored black, and made from aluminum, copper, and steel. Heat is absorbed and then transferred into air or water. The hot air can be immediately used, or transferred to another form. In the form of water, this heat can be stored in an insulated tank. In storage, the carrier fluids are about 150 to 200 degrees Fahrenheit (66-93 °C). Concentrating collectors are a different story, however. They collect heat up to 3,600 degrees Fahrenheit (2.000 °C).

This energy is clean and does not create any pollution; it can effectively put a stop to global warming. Despite what the community says, solar power is actually significantly cheaper than fossil fuels. It also has the potential to stop our dependency on fossil fuels and other nonrenewable resources, cancelling the greenhouse effect. Solar power is overall superior to gasoline, diesel, biodiesel, ethanol, methanol, hydrogen, and electricity. Most of these forms of energy are not a true energy because they need to be converted from other less-convenient sources. Fossil fuels are actually stored forms of potential energy that was made from what was basically solar energy long ago. Solar energy is constantly being generated.

Solar power is energy from the sun’s heat and radiation. It can be used as a clean, efficient, cheap source of energy that does not create any pollution. Solar power is arguably the most powerful energy source we have at our disposal.

                                                          What is Air Pollution? Air Pollution is a mixed particle with gas and solids in the air. Air Pollution has been out in the world for a long period of time, but recently it has taken a huge part in China. Not only as it affects the atmosphere and the environment but it … Continue reading AIR POPULLATION IN CHINA
