Amancay agonizing in Rio Negro Amancay agonizing in Rio Negro

June 30th, 2016. A southern right whale is agonizing for one week now. Nothing is performed, they observe her slow but sure death. It’s not the first time that Argentina is involved in cruelty towards marine biodiversity (selfie in Santa Teresita, slaughter of gulls instead of manage garbage generated by whale-watching turism, etc…). They agree to win thousands of dollars with marine animals but they don’t want to spend even one cent to save one in distress. Please, could you send them a message to rescue the whale, although it’s very late. You have an example of message below. You can write in your language too. Thanks.

Floating solar panels – the go for drought-stricken US lakes

Flag-USAFloating solar is a win-win energy solution for drought-stricken US lakes
Sunbaked southwest US is a prime spot for floatovoltaic projects, where they could produce clean energy and prevent evaporation in major man-made reservoirs, reports Environment 360, Guardian, Philip Warburg , 1 July 16  The Colorado River’s two great reservoirs, Lake Mead and Lake Powell, are in retreat. Multi-year droughts and chronic overuse have taken their toll, to be sure, but vast quantities of water are also lost to evaporation. What if the same scorching sun that causes so much of this water loss were harnessed for electric power?

Installing floating solar photovoltaic arrays, sometimes called “floatovoltaics,” on a portion of these two reservoirs in the southwestern United States could produce clean, renewable energy while shielding significant expanses of water from the hot desert sun.

The dual energy and environmental benefits of floating solar arrays are already beginning…
