Monitoring Pollution

Visualizing World Pollution


When the air is buy generic viagra without prescription polluted you can see it, smell it, even feel it. But polluted water isn't so obvious (until rivers start catching fire.) Soo-in Yang and buy levitra in england David Benjamin, creators of the levitra medication River Glow Project, understand that people need these feedbacks. Their solution is a combination of we recommend cialis canadian pharmacy pods containing red and green LEDs and a simple pH sensor. The LEDs light up red if poor water quality is detected and green if it is good.

The project would allow people to see from a distance if the water is good or bad at a cost of less than $1000 per unit.

When things look fine on the surface, it is easy to ignore, but if pollution like this can be visualized, people will certainly pay more attention. I can't help but think of the statue of Vulcan, the Roman god, who presides over my hometown of Birmingham Alabama. For some forty years, his torch turned shone red on days when there were traffic fatalities. Visualization is a powerful tool, and when it can be mixed with public art, all the better.

Pay-As-You-Go Garbage Tax

garbage binsHere in the United Kingdom, a nice idea has slowly been introduced by stealth. Some very clever local councils have been dishing out "Wheelie Bins" to residents in their locale. Not just any old mere wheelie-bin. Oh no - these bins are smart. Fitted with RFID microchips, the lorries which come to collect the refuge are capable of weighing the bins to within 500 grams, and identifying the jaygalbraith.com householder by the RFID code.

Although the legal infrastructure is not yet in place to charge householders as they throw refuse, the Local Government Association is poised to make proposals later this year.

By moving to cialis pfizer 50 mg measures of "green taxation", it is hoped that the populace will be encouraged to recycle and be responsible denizens. The Liberal Democrats are the only UK political party that is robovero.com being proactive and vocal about green taxation - a risky strategy for winning the hearts and minds of buy propecia voters, but potentially of immense benefit to the environment.

Similar schemes are up and running in Germany, where residents can pay up to 18p per kilo for unrecycled waste. 

It seems that some punters are less-than happy with this stealth-technology. One local district warns against removing the embedded microchips. It will be interesting to see how this one pans out in the long run - some say charging for waste disposal using innovative technology such as this is only going to lead to an increase in fly-tipping and wow look it levitra next day illegal dumping.  Personally, I think that this is an interesting move in the right direction towards making people realise that disposal has a cost - and that they can help minimise that cost - and hence damage to viagra from mexico the environment.

Climate@Home

{mosimage}Only the most foolhardy among us continue to be in denial about Global Warming. Experts agree - it's happening. Problem is, nailing the specifics is tricky. The vast number of variables involved makes for complex models requiring processing power that makes Deep Blue look like a sissy.

The BBC Climate Change Experiment hopes to predict the future climate of our planet by harnessing the power of distributed computing (remember SETI@Home). You can join in by downloading a small program that will connect your computer to the experiment. The application doubles as a screensaver, and uses your computer's excess processing power to crunch away at the Met Office climate model .

An open source platform for distributed computing called Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) is being used to click now viagra in uk run the experiment. Developed specifically for individuals to donate their computing power to scientific projects, BOINC harnesses processing power that would otherwise be wasted. The more people who participate in the experiment, the more complete predictions about the http://eatingdisorderrecovery.com/overnight-cialis-generic future climate will be.

Gore's global warming movie

{mosimage}

In a review published today in the New York Times ,  movie reviewer A.O. Scott points out that this is not, however, the Al Gore Show:
 
"But as I said, the movie is not about him. He is, rather, the surprisingly engaging vehicle for some very disturbing information. His explanations of complex environmental phenomena — the jet stream has always been a particularly tough one for me to grasp — are clear, and while some of the visual aids are a little corny, most of best prices on cialis the images are stark, illuminating and powerful."
 
The film is being touted for its clear descriptions of complicated subjects, and has been receiving rave reviews about being an engaging and sometimes even humorous look at the future of global warming.
 
The film opens today in New York and Los Angeles.
