Catching Fog
August 26, 2014 12:32 PM - Eliette Angel

"This is one of the best beers that I have ever tried," says Andrés Barrera. My friend is enjoying a craft beer called Atrapaniebla — Spanish for fog catcher — an ale made with water condensed from mountain fog on two fog catchers. The microbrewery that produces it, located in Peña Blanca (some 360 kilometres north of Santiago, the Chilean capital), is one of the first Chilean enterprises to make use of fog-catching technology; others use it to water tomato and aloe vera crops. "Water from fog catchers has less nitrite and nitrate than the drinking water in the north of Chile, which is good for beer," says Miguel Ángel Carcuro, 29-year-old co-owner of the microbrewery that makes Atrapaniebla. Of course, while beer is nice, water is essential and fog catchers can be a great way to provide this sometimes scarce commodity. Carcuro's interest in this technology stems from teenage travels with his father, who showed him a hill above the bay of Chungungo, where there were the remains of fog catchers that had until recently provided water for 100 families.

¡Periodo de incubación de pulpos de aguas profundas rompe récord!
August 14, 2014 11:03 AM - Allison Winter, ENN

Los petirrojos empollan sus huevos cerca de dos semanas después de la puesta. Los caballos de mar machos suelen cargar los huevos de 9 a 45 días. ¿Y los pulpos de aguas profundas? ¡Cuatro años y medio! Investigadores del Instituto de Investigación del Acuario de la Bahía de Monterey (MBARI, por sus siglas en inglés) han observado este fenómeno único e inquietante y tienen declarado que esta especie tarda el mayor tiempo empollando huevos que cualquier otro animal conocido. La temporada de empollar huevos sucede después de que la especie madre ponga los huevos. Los padres entonces hacen todo lo posible para proteger a los huevos para que los hijos se puede desarrollar. Esto incluye la limpieza de los huevos y protegerlos de los depredadores, poniendo en riesgo la propia vida de los padres, evidentemente. En mayo de 2007, durante una investigación de aguas profundas...

Un puente a un futuro de energía renovable
August 11, 2014 09:02 AM - Erich Lawson

“Hacer todo lo posible para combatir el cambio climático viene con numerosos beneficios, desde la reducción de la contaminación y los costos sanitarios asociados hasta fortalecer y diversificar la economía mediante un cambio hacia las energías renovables, entre otras medidas.” (David Suzuki) El concepto de la energía renovable ha adquirido gran importancia en los últimos años debido a la creciente necesidad de la conservación del medio ambiente. Todas las personas tienen que poner de su parte para ahorrar energía de manera que se pueda conservar el medio ambiente para las generaciones venideras. Por lo general la gente piensa en fuentes solares, eólicas e hidroeléctricas cuando piensan en energías renovables. Sin embargo, hay otra fuente de energía renovable que se crea en todo el mundo diariamente, que son los residuos. Como este concepto es aún muy nuevo, sólo hay unas pocas empresas que se han aventurado en este campo. Sin embargo, empresas como Northern California Compactor son pioneras en este campo con la introducción de diferentes compactadores de basura, que ayudan a...

A Bridge to a Renewable Energy Future
August 5, 2014 04:18 PM - Erich Lawson

"Doing all we can to combat climate change comes with numerous benefits, from reducing pollution and associated health care costs to strengthening and diversifying the economy by shifting to renewable energy, among other measures." (David Suzuki) The whole concept of renewable energy has gained high importance in the recent years, owing to the growing need of conservation. Every person needs to do their bit to save energy so that it can be sustained for the generations to come. Generally people think of solar, wind, and hydroelectric sources when they think of renewable energy. However, there is one more source of renewable energy that is created around the globe on a regular basis, which is waste. As this concept is still very new, there are only a few companies who have ventured into this field. However, companies like Northern California Compactor are pioneers in this field with the introduction of different trash compactors, which help industries manage their waste and trash in a better manner. This also helps industries generate renewable energy from these waste products.
