Marine reserves help alleviate climate change

Marine reserves help alleviate climate change
An international team of scientists has concluded that 'highly protected' marine reserves can help mitigate the effects of climate change and suggests that these areas be expanded and better managed throughout the world. Globally, coastal nations have committed to protecting 10% of their waters by 2020, but thus far only 3.5% of the ocean has been set aside for protection - and less than half of that (1.6%) is strongly protected from exploitation.

Small-scale hydropower to be applied in developing nations

Small-scale hydropower to be applied in developing nations
Engineers at Oregon State University have created a computer modelling package that people anywhere in the world could use to assess the potential of a stream for small-scale, "run of river" hydropower, an option to produce electricity that's of special importance in the developing world. The system is easy to use; does not require data that is often unavailable in foreign countries or remote locations; and can consider hydropower potential not only now, but in the future as projected changes in climate and stream runoff occur.
