Meet the Siblings Making Hydropower That Actually Protects Rivers and Fish
Hydropower is the world’s biggest source of renewable energy, generating about 16% of the global electricity supply. And it will continue to play a key role as the world looks to meet net-zero targets, not least of all because, like a battery, it can store massive amounts of energy for later and quickly release it in moments of peak demand. But despite being better for the climate, it’s becoming increasingly clear that renewable energy sources can have a negative impact on the environment. Just 37% of the world’s 246 longest rivers remain free-flowing—without any human-made dams, reservoirs, or othe...

Go fish: Danish scientists work on fungi-based seafood substitute
Team call in Michelin-starred restaurant to help crack challenge of mimicking texture of seafoodFrom plant-based meat that “bleeds” to milk grown in a lab, fake meats and dairy have come a long way in recent years. But there is another alternative that scientists are training their sights on, one with the most challenging texture to recreate of all: seafood.Scientists in Copenhagen are fermenting seaweed on fungi to develop the closest substitute for seafood yet, working with Alchemist, a two-Michelin-starred restaurant, to meet demand from diners for sustainable plant-based alternatives that are as good as – or bett...

Bionic robo-fish able to remove microplastics from seas revealed by scientists – video
Scientists have designed a tiny robot fish that is programmed to remove microplastics from seas and oceans by swimming around and adsorbing them. Microplastics are the billions of tiny plastic particles which fragment from bigger plastic things used every day. They are one of the 21st century ’s biggest environmental problems because once they are dispersed into the environment they are very hard to get rid of, harming the environment and animal and human health.Scientists unveil bionic robo-fish to remove microplastics from seasContinue reading...

The Sustainable Use of Wild Species is Important for Everyone
Salmon fishing. Credit: iStockBy Marla R. Emery, Jean-Marc Fromentin and John DonaldsonBONN, Germany, Jun 22 2022 (IPS) You probably use wild species far more often than you realise. For many people, especially in more developed economies, the use of wild species sounds like something quite removed from their everyday lives – something perhaps more relevant to other people, in other countries. It is a fact, however, that the use of wild species is a vital part of almost every human community. If you eat fish, they are most likely wild species. When you take cough medication, it’s likely to be derived, in part, from wi...
