With plans of the Isimba dam under way, estimates show that there should be over 3,000 jobs created during the construction of the dam. Due to the construction work need on the dam. Some of the work will be welders, accountants, carpenters, masons, security guards and many more. The project which Uganda and the CWE, will be working hand on hand on the project. ... read more >>
Fukushima and the Transnationality of Radioactive Nuclear Contamination. “Visualizing Radiactivity” and its Impacts on Humanity | Global Research
With the Fukushima nuclear disaster that occurred right after the tsunami, has been showing large amounts of nuclear waste being sent into the ocean. Tokyo Electric Power Company or (TEPCO) has been going through work with the central government after being bailed out as a company "too big to fail". The government has limited the amount of accountability that large corporation can have. ... read more >>
While only about 30% of California’s usable water storage capacity lies at higher elevations, high-elevation hydropower units generate on average 74% of California’s in-state hydroelectricity. In general, high-elevation plants have small man-made reservoirs and rely mainly on snowpack. Their low built-in storage capacity is a concern with regard to climate warming. Snowmelt is expected to shift t ... read more >>
Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) problems are often associated with tradeoffs between performances of the available alternative solutions under decision making criteria. These problems become more complex when performances are associated with uncertainty. This study proposes a stochastic MCDM procedure that can handle uncertainty in MCDM problems. The proposed method coverts a stochastic MCD ... read more >>
By 2050, the world's growing population will use 55% more water in their homes, to grow food, and to produce electricity and manufactured goods. To ensure enough water to meet this demand, we will need to stop wasting it and find new ways to make sure there's enough to go around. For more info visit: www.oecd.org/water ... read more >>
In many countries bank filtration is used as the first step of drinking water treatment.
River water percolates the riverbed and aquifer sediments which serve as a natural
filter removing substances like nitrate, particular and dissolved organic matter and
trace elements. Raw water quality, therefore, depends on both river water quality as
well as hydrogeochemical processe ... read more >>
The head of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development sought to make climate change a higher priority on the global agenda, urging the world on Wednesday to eliminate all emissions from burning fossil fuels sometime in the second half of this century. ... read more >>
The economic optimum harvest age for sugar-cane depends to a large extent on how rates of photosynthesis and respiration change with age. A simple model of the carbon balance in which a constant photosynthetic efficiency was assumed, accounted to a large extent for dry matter accumulation by cv. NCo376 grown under irrigation. Rain-fed crops of this cultivar were simulated by linking the model of ... read more >>
With the current state of affairs, correcting measures still can be taken to avoid the crisis to be worsening. There is a increasing awareness that our freshwater resources are limited and need to be protected both in terms of quantity and quality. This water challenge affects not only the water community, but also decision-makers and every human being. "Water is everybody's business" was one the ... read more >>
Platinum operations around the South African mining city of Rustenburg will face water use restrictions because of a drought, the Department of Water Affairs said on Friday.
"This is potentially important. Mines are huge users of water in the processing operations and in some cases the mining operations. It's a very arid part of the world," said Jonathan Butler, an analyst at Mitsubishi.
