Future of Fossil Fuels From Thin Air

Fighting  for the environment can be done in multiple ways. Reducing the cost or accessibility of renewables is one way – energy sell-back, subsidies, and new technologies. More recently, EU decided to tackle 10 biggest single-use plastics within their jurisdiction, hoping to “deliver tangible results [..] before the elections in May 2019”. Those methods concentrate on avoiding future build-up of pollution.

However there is another aspect that needs to be focused on: repairing the damages already caused. It’s uplifting hearing about another country running solely on renewables for X days in a row, or the fact that biggest ocean pollutants are being phased out of our lifestyles but reduction of the build-up is also important . New ocean cleaning initiatives, carbon sucking towers, reforestation are all methods to combat the pre-existing depreciation of our planet. In all of this, a peer reviewed article from Carbon Engineering from a week ago gave another promising opportunity in carbon elimination through Direct Air Capture (DAC)*.

Learning by Youtubing

Online education has become a very popular mean of learning in present times. The raise of the internet has allowed for people of all backgrounds and interests to access thousands, if not, millions of resources of information of any field. The best thing is that many of these resources do not constrain people in terms of money as they are free and sometimes, very cheap. In this article, I want to talk about the type of information we consume out of curiosity and in our free time. This is a kind of informal education that has become very popular in the last years with the raise of the internet. After all, we as humans are very curious by nature and we will ask questions when we face something that interests us, even if it’s not in our field of expertise.
