8-year-old Mexican Girl Wins Nuclear Sciences Prize For Her Invention

8-year-old Mexican Girl Wins Nuclear Sciences Prize For Her Invention

At just 8 years old, Xóchitl Guadalupe Cruz has invented a device to help low-income families.

The little girl from Chiapas was recognized by UNAM's Institute of Nuclear Sciences for her outstanding scientific achievement.

In Xóchitl's community in Chiapas, Mexico, resources are scarce. "People don't have the money to buy heaters, so they chop down trees to get firewood [to heat the water]," she says.

The 3rd grader took it upon herself to do something about it. 

A veteran of science projects - she's been competing in science fairs since she was four - Xochitl set about putting her knowledge and ingenuity to work. Using only discarded materials like bottles, wood, and plastics, she crafted a heating device that runs on a free and readily available energy source: the sun.

Her device not only functions to provide hot water to low-income families in her community, it also saves trees! 

Xóchitl's family helped her set up the device on their roof and have been using it to heat water to bathe. Xóchitl says she always bathes quickly though, "so [the hot water] will last for my little brother."

The young inventor was recently recognized by the Nuclear Sciences Institute at Mexico's Autonomous University for her solar-powered water-heating device, which has the potential to improve lives and the environment not only in rural Mexican communities, but in countries around the world.

If this is what Xóchitl is doing at eight, we can only imagine what the future holds.

Can We Reach 100 Percent Renewable Energy in Time to Avert Climate Catastrophe?


DANIEL ROSS, TRUTHOUT

To prevent the worst climate scenarios, carbon emissions must be slashed to net zero by 2050, say experts. Reaching 100 percent renewable energy in just 30 years sounds like an unattainable goal for a culture headed in the opposite direction, but a road map already exists for becoming 100 percent reliant on energy generated by water, wind and sun -- if only we have the will.

Tesla 🌞 Providing Clean Energy To Places Around The World That Desperately Need It

September 4th, 2019 by Johnna Crider

SNIPPET:


Puerto Rico

Not only did Tesla provide disaster relief after Hurricane Maria devastated this beautiful US territory, but Tesla is working on 11,000 projects in Puerto Rico. Tesla’s solar energy efforts are continuing to play a huge role in Puerto Rico’s rebuilding of its energy infrastructure. After Hurricane Maria, 51,000 people were left without power.


Phys.org published an article that interviewed a few residents of Puerto Rico and how they were inspired by Tesla to install solar and batteries. An electronics technician told PhysOrg, “This can pull us out of the mess we’re in. There’s nothing wrong with having a vision of the future. It’s time to start making changes.”

In June of 2019, Utility Dive reported that Puerto Rico was introducing microgrids to prevent a repeat of Hurricane Maria.

Greta Thunberg crossed the ocean on a carbon-free sailboat. Can we do it too?

To build a transatlantic ferry that's cheap, clean, and quick, we'll need to, well, build a better boat.

“Sharp falls in the cost of electricity from wind and solar over recent years have transformed the choice facing policy-makers,” said Jon Moore, Chief Executive of BloombergNEF, in a statement. “These technologies were always low-carbon and relatively quick to build. Now, in many countries around the world, either wind or solar is the cheapest option for electricity generation.

Global Renewable Energy Has Quadrupled Over the Past Decade

BRIAN BIENKOWSKI, ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH NEWS

Renewable energy capacity has quadrupled across the planet over the past decade, with solar power leading the way, according to a recent international report. While this growth prevented 2 billion tons of carbon dioxide emissions last year, the report cautions that sustained renewable energy progression needs to continue for the planet to avoid the worst potential impacts of climate change.

High-level oil and gas executives have concluded that "the ship has sailed" on manipulating the public with climate denial, the Washington Post reports.

In a recording of a closed-door June meeting of the Independent Petroleum Association of America obtained by the Post, Mark Barron, a chief energy litigator at Baker Hostetler, told gathered executives that everyone under the age of 40 thinks climate change is "an existential crisis that we need to address...

SNIPPET:

While a 0.4 TWh difference between renewable- and fossil fuel-generated electricity may not seem that impressive, it represents the electricity needs of hundreds of thousands of customers. And the context of where the UK electric generating system was just 10 years ago makes the transition all the more amazing. In the third quarter of 2009, the country generated 60.4 TWh of electricity from fossil fuels and only 5.7 TWh from renewables.

The Carbon Brief analysis shows that, overall, 40 percent of electricity in the UK in the third quarter of this year came from renewables. The biggest chunk was from wind, clocking in at 20 percent, in part due to the aforementioned hugenormous (technical term, I believe ;D) Hornsea One wind farm that came online this summer. In addition, another 6 percent came from solar. But here’s the rub: 12 percent came from burning biomass and wood pellets. While the UK classifies biomass as renewable because the trees the pellets are made from can be replanted and suck up carbon dioxide from burning said pellets, there are a number of issues, includes whether forests are actually planted and allowed to regrow. Research suggests the timeframe to reap any benefits of wood pellets as “renewables” can be decades, according to an in-depth report from Climate Central.

“It’s critical that the 🎋 health benefits of cleaner air be included in considering the return on investment in renewable energy,” said Dr. Aparna Bole, an associate professor at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, on a new study that quantifies projected health benefits from renewable energy.

Two new reports illustrate offshore wind’s potential , showing prices have dropped 32 percent in the past year :o and that the industry could provide more than enough clean electricity to meet global demand. Replacing fossil fuels with wind and solar has quantifiable health benefits and the Midwest stands to gain the most, according to new research. Honda will stop selling gas-only vehicles in Europe three years earlier than planned and Volkswagen aims to produce 1 million electric cars annually by 2022. GE and BlackRock have raised $250 million to fund a portfolio of solar projects through 2020.
