Nuclear_power_station

Nuclear_label

Nuclear power stations operate in 31 countries. Of the thirty countries in which nuclear power plants operate, only France, Belgium, Hungary and Slovakia use them as the primary source of electricity, although many other countries have a significant nuclear power generation capacity. According to the World Nuclear Association, a nuclear power advocacy group, over 45 countries are giving “serious consideration” to introducing a nuclear power capability, with Iran, the United Arab Emirates, Turkey,Vietnam, Belarus, and Jordan at the forefront. China, South Korea and India are pursuing ambitious expansions of their nuclear power capacities

As of June 2011, Germany and Switzerland are phasing-out nuclear power which will be replaced mostly by fossil fuels, and a smaller part renewable energy.

Documentary : Dirt! Incredible Secrets of Soil

Do not miss this documentary, friends…

An excursion into the realms of soil, the number 1 life-giver on Earth…It’s fundamentally important ecological functions, our poor understanding of it as well as our destructive relationship with it. They are so essential to life and thus to us, that our survival is directly dependent on their understanding and protection!

Documentary : History of the World in 2 hours

Must Watch : A fascinating documentary about the world’s history, throws some light on our “Human- Pride!”

Imagine compressing 14 billion years of history down to just 14 years and on the scale the earth would have existed only for the past five years. So that’s about a third of the history of the universe wall large complex creatures would have developed seven months ago. On the scale dinosaurs went extinct only about three weeks ago. The entire recorded history of humans would span only the last three minutes . Modern industrial societies the Industrial Revolution effectively 6 seconds ago.

So welcome to the journey, well just one and a half hours without commercials.

A rapid-fire history of our world, from the beginning of time as we know it to present day. This two-hour CGI-driven special delves into the key turning points: the formation of earth, emergence of life, spread of man and the growth of civilization–and reveals their surprising connections to our world today.

The complete credits go to the director Douglas Cohen and his team for this awesome work.

Know : Atmospheric Circulation

Atmospheric circulation is the large-scale movement of air, and the means (together with the smaller ocean circulation) by which thermal energy is distributed on the surface of the Earth.

Earth_Global_CirculationThe large-scale structure of the atmospheric circulation varies from year to year, but the basic climatological structure remains fairly constant. Individual weather systems – mid-latitude depressions, or tropical convective cells – occur “randomly”, and it is accepted that weather cannot be predicted beyond a fairly short limit: perhaps a month in theory, or (currently) about ten days in practice (see Chaos theory and Butterfly effect). Nonetheless, as the climate is the average of these systems and patterns – where and when they tend to occur again and again – it is stable over longer periods of time.

As a rule, the “cells” of Earth’s atmosphere shift polewards in warmer climates (e.g. interglacials compared toglacials), but remain largely constant even due to continental drift; they are, fundamentally, a property of the Earth’s size, rotation rate, heating and atmospheric depth, all of which change little. Tectonic uplift can significantly alter major elements of it, however – for example the jet stream -, and plate tectonics shift ocean currents. In the extremely hot climates of the Mesozoic, indications of a third desert belt at the Equator has been found; it was perhaps caused by convection. But even then, the overall latitudinal pattern of Earth’s climate was not much different from the one today.
