Energy Tower: Power for 15 Earths? Researchers have designed a product that its inventors claim could easily produce between 15 and 20 times the total electricity the world uses today. Not only that, it could also be used as a desalination device and may be able to reverse the effects of global warming. Those are pretty big claims, but the researchers from the Technion - Israel Institute of Science seem confident that the "Energy Tower" could be a major solution to the world's problems. They've been working on the concept since 1983, and together have spent more than 150 man-years researching, designing, testing, and analyzing. As project founder Professor Dan Zaslavsky explains, the Energy Tower works on the basic principle of convection: hot air rises and cold air falls.
Ramsar Convention The Convention on Wetlands of International Importance, called the Ramsar Convention, is an intergovernmental treaty that provides the framework for national action and international cooperation for the conservation and wise use of wetlands and their resources. The Ramsar Convention is the only global environmental treaty that deals with a particular ecosystem. The treaty was adopted in the Iranian city of Ramsar in 1971 and the Convention's member countries cover all geographic regions of the planet. The Ramsar mission The Convention's mission is "the conservation and wise use of all wetlands through local and national actions and international cooperation, as a contribution towards achieving sustainable development throughout the world".
Mainstreaming sustainable development: government progress 2013 Sustainable development requires consideration of the economic, environmental and social factors in decision making to deliver the right policies now and enable others to do the same in the future. Defra has published this report on behalf of the government to provide an overview of what has been achieved so far in the move towards mainstreaming sustainable development. The report will be of interest to those with a concern for sustainability in government, but also more widely. It is intended to facilitate scrutiny of our progress to date. The government continues to move towards fully embedding sustainable development in its policies and operations and solid foundations have been put in place to enable further improvement in this area. In February 2011, the government launched its vision for mainstreaming sustainable development in relation to the operation of its buildings and estates, including the goods and services that it buys and the policies it makes.

The Searl Effect Generator - Ultimate Overunity? undefined Searl Effect Technology The Searl Effect Generator (SEG) is a magnetic diode, and what one may consider one of the original "Free Energy" Devices. The inventor of the technology is Professor John Robert Roy Searl of England. The SEG in essence is a composite ring made of an electron reservoir (a rare earth like Neodymium), a magnetized accelerator stage (Iron or Nickel), an electron flow regulator stage (Nylon 66 or Teflon), and finally, a paramagnetic layer (Aluminium or Copper). Green Guide Directory Introduction Orchard Café The Green Guide is much more than a consumer or business directory. Over nearly 20 years we have collected an ever-widening range of listings covering the whole gamut of green and sustainable living and thinking. You'll find entries for academic research, product development, consultants, politics and campaigning as well as a huge range of shopping and purchasing choices, including how to spend your leisure time and where to go on holiday. Our aim is to create a rich and immersive experience when using the Green Guide, showing readers just how far green thinking and sustainable choices have developed, and revealing the real depth of choice available.
Searl Effect Generator (SEG) From PESWiki Artist animation illustrating the three rings with rollers. According to Searl, who built nearly two dozen of these in the 1960's, the electrons flow from the middle to the periphery where they can be picked up either as AC or DC current. If the load is too great, a superconductive effect kicks in, resulting in an anti-gravitic effect.Image source: The Searl Solution. The artist’s rendering illustrates a cross section view of the stator rings and rollers consisting of the four material layers. The layers typically consist of a Neodymium, Teflon, permanent magnetic, and outer most is OFHC copper.
