Hydropower is the largest single source of renewable electricity in the world, dwarfing solar and wind. As such, it has established a positive reputation in the media and many academic papers. But that’s not the whole story ... Hydropower has a darker side that is threatening freshwater ecosystems more than oil, more than gas, and more than any other form of energy. As of 2019, the world’s total renewable energy capacity stood at 2,351 GW, of which around half—or 1,172 GW—was hydropower capacity. This includes both…

That means ending the blockade, which is doing severe damage to the economy of country,” Sanalla was quoted as saying by Libyan…

But another technology might help: turning CO2 back into fuel. Two recent inventions are giving hope, and both have to do with nanocatalysts. As the name suggests, these are microscopic catalysts—chemicals that accelerate a chemical reaction between other elements—and these catalysts can be used in hydrogenation to produce useful gases. Hydrogenation put simply,…
