It all started with a job offer. The aerospace company SpaceX has indicated on its site that it is looking for engineers who would work "to design and build an operational installation for launching offshore rockets". The location? In Brownsville, Texas, where Starship rocket prototypes are currently being tested.
Alternative energy is the key to the survival of a human future and the existence of many species on Earth. The question, in my opinion, is not whether to switch to fossil fuels or not. The question of focus in this paper is the effects of alternative energy options on our economy and environment. There are many types of alternative energy out there and methods are being created left and right through technological advancements. Fossil Fuels are the most commonly used form of energy in the U.S today.
As I finished this article I watched as the weather doused the hopes of a much hyped and historic Elon Musk/SpaceX launch to carry NASA astronauts to the ISS. I realized later that the whole event was a metaphor for exactly what I'm writing about here - that despite the best plans laid for projecting our wills into space, unforeseen and chaotic circumstances can render them all for naught, so it's best to have a B plan.
Dense congestion in cities, dangerously poor air quality, and environmental damage — the excessive use of cars within cities links all of these major concerns. In February this year, the UK announced plans to bring forward the ban on the production of new diesel and petrol cars to 2035. To many, this move may seem radical, but with the mounting pressure on governments around the world to take action against the climate crisis, urgent measures like this one are a necessity.
My first trillion dollar idea is in bringing Galactik Football to life.
Right now, the world has come to A stop it seems, at least for now. As businesses that are non essential struggle to find ways to earn money while the rest of the world plummet Financially,there’s no shadow of a doubt that things won’t quite be the same as it was even after COVID-19. So how is your life about to change? It won’t be the type of world you were use to after all of this and consider this a glimpse into the future. Although it seem scary, it’s our future and you’ll just have to suck it up and live in it, no matter how dystopian it might get. When your governor refers to the “new Normal, realize it‘s not just reopening of businesses and other institutions, but rather, the beginning of the future promised by The Jetsons or science fiction.
To say this is the end of the world as we know it is not an understatement. The more crucial question is not whether life is going to change, but by how much.
"Is it really possible to travel back in time? What about traveling into the future, have we finally figured out how to do that? Well, you’ll have to read on to find out…"
Many people might not know, but plastic has been important for human evolution, and we use it for multiple things. The problem with plastic is that it doesn’t just disappear; it sticks around for hundreds of years and sometimes it ends up in the natural environment, mostly on the ocean. Plastics can get to the ocean in different ways; for example, the rain and winds can drag plastics to the ocean, but that’s not the only way they can get to the ocean, another common way is through storm drains. When plastics reach the ocean, they never break down completely, instead they turn into really small pieces called microplastics that can be dangerous for marine life. A study run by the Monterey Bay Aquarium shows that small ocean animals are consuming microplastic particles; yes, those are the same ocean creatures that we consume. These microplastic particles mainly come from consumer products like plastic water bottles and product packaging, but not all plastics in the ocean get to break down into microplastics, sometimes plastics end up being eaten by large ocean animals, which is really dangerous for them because their digestive system can get clogged up. Once their digestive system is clogged up, the animal stops receiving the nutrition that they need and end up dying with their stomachs full of plastic (“Plastic pollution”). I believe we should become more aware of the problems that plastics are bringing to the ocean and worry about finding a way to take plastics out of the ocean and planning on what to do with those plastics after they out of the ocean.
Go on. Tell me that climate change isn’t real. Come on, I dare you!
