Solar vs Coal The question is how did the world reach this green turn of events?  The answer is that in many countries, solar power is now cheaper than coal and gas.  Also, a number of nations have set strong targets to cut emissions and reduce fossil fuel use.  And, solar projects have become less expensive to manufacture and install. Fast Forward The IEA projects that over the next ten years, renewable energy will equal 80% of new power generation.  However, there is one big need to support the switch to renewable energy:  an investment of at least $460 billion in energy grids

Vertical Farming - Vertical Takeoff 2025

Crop Harvest That's Good for the Environment The technology was first introduced in 2010. Singapore is the site of the world's first vertical farm. In 2018,  China and Japan dominate this technology.  They also have the world's most vertical farms. Researchers think that vertical farming will become the predominant mode of agriculture by 2025. Here's why:  yields, eco-friendly, sustainable. Big Yield Bonanza With vertical farming, you can produce more than 300-times of the same crop on the same sized land acreage. New York City Just 150 vertical farms at 30 stories tall could supply New York City with a reliable and sufficient food source.  Consider the same for major cities around the world. Pollution and Transportation Costs Dramatically Cut Transportation costs and pollution are greatly cut as the food is sold at the vertical farm where it's grown. Environmentally Friendly and Sustainable Everything at vertical farms are re-cycled from water to o
