    The greenhouse effect is a natural process that warms the Earth’s surface. When the Sun’s energy reaches the Earth’s atmosphere, some of it is reflected back to space and the rest is absorbed and re-radiated by greenhouse gases. Greenhouse gases include water vapour, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, ozone and some artificial chemicals such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs).   Hydropower has several advantages. Once a dam has been built and the equipment installed, the energy source—flowing water—is free. It's a .

    Environment Why vertical farming isn't a miracle solution to food security. Vertical farming is great for growing lots of food in a small space, but productivity comes at a cost: high energy : Andrew Jenkins.   In comparison, lettuces grown in a purpose built vertical farm need an estimated 3,kWh a year for each square metre of growing area. Notably, 98% Author: Andrew Jenkins.
