UMBC’s Geography and Environmental Systems programs prepare their students for careers that will help them fight environmental issues such as global warming, energy conservation, and other climate changes.
In today’s Industry News, we look at the recent innovations in the field of Environmental Science and their efforts to provide a positive impact on the planet.
Renewable Energy and Wildlife can Coexist, and They Must
Renewable energy is an urgently needed and economically viable solution to fight climate change. As the United States and other countries worldwide turn to renewable sources to reduce emissions and move away from fossil fuels, policymakers must consider the impact of renewable energy development on wildlife.
The Smog-Free Tower
The Smog Project is a campaign by Daan Roosegaarde to reduce air pollution and provide an inspirational experience of a clean future, including a series of urban innovations for clean air and the reduction of air pollution.
How Are Electric Vehicles Better for the Environment?
As a cleaner alternative, electric vehicles are an important step in sustainable transportation. Notable for their fuel efficiency, EVs can be a cost-effective way to reduce operating expenses across your fleet.
How Do Wind Turbines Work?
Wind turbines work on a simple principle: instead of using electricity to make wind—like a fan—wind turbines use wind to make electricity. Wind turns the propeller-like blades of a turbine around a rotor, which spins a generator, which creates electricity.
