Is this the most underrated form of energy generation?

The purpose of switching from fossil fuels to low-emission alternative fuels is to mitigate climate change by reducing a country’s total carbon dioxide emissions, which in turn, will contribute to reducing total global emissions. There is a lot of talk about switching to cleaner forms of energy, and solar and wind energy are naturally theContinue reading “Is this the most underrated form of energy generation?”

How high is too high?

Many of the world’s tallest buildings have become tourist attractions, New Year’s Eve countdown locations and even spots for wedding proposals. However, it is not the events that occur there or the words used to describe them, but the numbers that make these structures with complicated engineering calculations very inspiring. It can also be veryContinue reading “How high is too high?”

Where do we get our numbers from?

5,4,3,2,1 and 0. We are so familiar with our numerical system that it never occurred to us to find out where numbers actually come from. Imagine a world where you could not count the numbers of days to your birthday or the amount you get paid at the end of each month?! (I do notContinue reading “Where do we get our numbers from?”

Electric Power Generation and consumption

Replacing fossil fuels with renewable and sustainable forms of energy, may be the greatest challenge of the 21st century and possibly of world history. Many engineers and scientists are working on developing the current technology that we have to harness the natural sources of energy to mitigate climate change. We are all aware of theContinue reading “Electric Power Generation and consumption”
