www.hydrowaterpower.com www.hydrowaterpower.com Using conventional gasoline to run a car damages the environment, because when gasoline is burnt by the combustion process in the engine it releases a huge amount of waste products such as nitrogen oxides, volatile organic hydrocarbons, and carbon monoxide, which are all emitted from the car through the exhaust system. These emissions distribute into the atmosphere and cause air pollution, which has been targeted as a prime generator of smog and acid rain. Air pollution is damaging to natural ecosystems and can pose a serious health risk to humans causing respiratory problems and seizures. Exposure to highly concentrate amounts of gasoline emissions from cars can also be lethal. There are various ways of cutting down on emissions produced from cars. Hybrid cars are becoming more popular, which reduce the amount of petrol needed by supplementing it with an alternative fuel source. The most common hybrid cars currently on the market are those that combine a regular gasoline engine with an electric motor. The electric motor is used when the vehicle is travelling in traffic at low speeds, and the petrol engine only kicks in when the battery is running low, or higher speeds are needed on open roads.

Check us out at www.tutorvista.com Different Types of Pollution There are nine basic types of environmental pollution, and each one has detrimental affects on wildlife, human habitation, and the quality of life in the affected area. Air Pollution :Air pollution is defined as any contamination of the atmosphere that disturbs the natural composition and chemistry of the air. This can be in the form of particulate matter such as dust or excessive gases like carbon dioxide or other vapors that cannot be effectively removed through natural cycles, such as the carbon cycle or the nitrogen cycle. Air pollution comes from a wide variety of sources. Some of the most excessive sources include: •Vehicle or manufacturing exhaust •Forest fires, volcanic eruptions, dry soil erosion, and other natural sources •Building construction or demolition Depending on the concentration of air pollutants, several effects can be noticed. Smog increases, higher rain acidity, crop depletion from inadequate oxygen, higher rates of asthma, and global warming are all related to increased air pollution. Water Pollution: Water pollution involves any contaminated water, whether from chemical, particulate, or bacterial matter that degrades the waters quality and purity. Water pollution can occur in oceans, rivers, lakes, and underground reservoirs, and as different water sources flow together the pollution can spread. Causes of water pollution include: •Increased sediment from soil erosion •Improper waste ...
pollutioncontrol.free-health-care.info Preventing Air Pollution: Small Changes Make Big Differences Preventing air pollution is not just the job of the government or the environmental activists you see marching in protest. In fact, air pollution is something that everyone can contribute to. Poor air quality leads to increased levels of smog. Breathing problems, including asthma are directly related to the onset of pollution in some areas. There are many other problems caused by air pollution. Therefore, anyone and everyone will benefit from making just a few changes. Big things will happen when individuals make even just small changes in their lives. What are the best ways for you to help in preventing air pollution? One of the first ways is to improving your driving habits and driving lifestyle. Since fossil fuel burning is the largest contributor to air pollution, it becomes essential to reduce driving habits or to find ways to improve them so there are fewer toxins entering the air from vehicle. Some ways to do this include carpooling and walking instead of driving your car to work. ride a bike You may be close enough to ride a bike to work instead of taking your vehicle. You can also reduce the amount if air pollution you cause with your vehicle by working from home, taking the bus or even better, simply using the web to make your purchases. hybrid using hybrid using You can also make other changes to your vehicle to help improve air quality. Preventing air pollution ...
pollutioncontrol.free-health-care.info Air Pollution Causes You Can Prevent Air pollution causes range widely. There are many ways you directly and indirectly cause air pollution. While you may be unwilling to cut out some of these things from your daily life, you will find that there are small and simple things you can do that have a great effect on the environment as a whole. can be prevented or minimized Air pollution causes are not just from factories or large manufacturing facilities. People cause many of the problems themselves, yet most of these causes can be prevented or minimized. your vehicle Take a look at some of the air pollution causes you may be contributing to. One of the largest is your vehicle. Cars, buses, trucks and even your lawn mower are all large problems for the environment and air quality. The facts are simple. Those machines that burn fossil fuels including natural gas, oil and coal are doing the most damage to the environment. produces small amounts of fume You may be unwilling to stop driving your vehicle, of course. Instead, look for ways to minimize the amount of fumes produced by your vehicle, such as choosing a vehicle that is a hybrid or one that produces small amounts of fume. You may want to focus on driving less, too, or carpooling with others so you are not putting as many toxins into the air. tighter controls on air quality Air pollution causes on a grand scale are very important, though. There is no doubt that smog and acid rain are ...
The climategate scandal is the apex of exposure to corruption in this very field of academic specialisation, Scientists in the field in australia have been gagged from speaking out about climate change for government fears of 'looking bad. Its my opinion that Geoengineering is the direct cause of climate change, not c02. it wouldnt be the first time politics usurped scientific integrity, after all, the Nazi's 'jewish' solution was based on an accepted science of the day 'eugenics' that was popularised science of the time throughout the world, it was considered as a legitimate science, we now know better, or do we? lest we forget the tyranny of the usurpation of democratic process, the politics of the 1930's is doomed to repeat itself. Beware of popularist scientism that contradicts reality, it worked for them once before, can they do it again? in this footage i have used five scenes, enhancing gamma contrast, color ecetera, as usual i never upload without mentioning if i had used enhanced filters, but as always explain when filters are used... these are scenes of filtered footage.

Emitting only a breeze of fresh air might seem like a dream, but it's the latest invention by French engineer Guy Negre. He estimates the new vehicle will cost about 4000 Euros and travel a maximum speed of about 93 miles per hour. As a former Formula one motor racing engineer, Negre strongly believes he is introducing the car of the future to the market — he's hoping by the beginning of 2010. According to Negre, his engine is twice as efficient as regular cars, using up to 60 percent of its capacity, and offers a zero-pollution vehicle suitable for urban driving. [Guy Negre, French Inventor & Engineer]: "Some experts say there are 400 thousand deaths in Europe, due to traffic pollution. So our ways with cars in cities will have to change completely, so we will need clean cars, I think one day or another, polluting cars will be banned from cities, which means there will be only electric cars left, and ours." The car's engine will move the pistons using pressurized air. The engine, topped by an electric motor, emits only fresh air out of an almost frozen exhaust pipe. Some experts, however, are skeptical. [Daniel Favrat, Industrial Science Expert]: "The major challenge is that pressurized air has a very weak energetic capacity. If you take a small car with 40 liters of capacity with normal fuel, that equals, with air pressurized at 300 bars, only two deciliters of petrol. So you see the extraordinary challenge to produce such vehicles. That's why I'm personally a little ...

Part 6 of 6 for this series, clip 2 of 3 for this part. A superior way to maintain engine oil quality on high mileage vehicles is to install a bypass oil filter. This can remove particles and even contaminants from engine oil. Fleet maintenance facilities generate hundreds of used oil filters every year. Managing and disposing of used oil filters can be expensive. An alternative to this is the use of reusable filters. Using reusable oil filters eliminates oil filter waste generation, reduces onsite oil filter inventory, eliminates draining and crushing of used filters, and eliminates waste filter storage and disposal. In most cases, reusable oil filters last the life of the vehicle. The filter is simply removed, cleaned with a parts washer and replaced.

Part 5 of 6 for this series, clip 1 of 2 for this part. Used motor oil comprises a significant portion of hazardous waste generated at vehicle repair facilities. Almost half of the oil that is recycled is burned as fuel. This has a bad effect on air quality. Rerefining oils will remove contaminants that will allow the oil to be reused. Rerefined oil is every bit as reliable as virgin oil. Author: California Department of Toxic Substances Control - Office of Pollution Prevention Publication Date: 2003
Part 1 of 6 for this series, clip 2 of 8 for this part. Most vehicle service facilities use solvents to clean parts. This raises both environmental and health concerns. Aqueous cleaning is far more cost effective than solvent use. Aqueous solutions are water based, nonflammable, and contain little or no VOCs. They also work as well as solvents and last longer. There are four types of aqueous cleaning units available, sink-top, spray cabinet, ultrasonic and immersion. Microbial sink-top units are used like a traditional solvent sink. The solution of these units contain microbes that eat the oil and organic soils cleaned off of parts. This minimizes waste and extends the life of the solution. These units are most effective on parts with light oil, grease and dirt and are used for quick cleaning jobs. Aerosol products should never be used over a microbial sink-top. The chemicals from such products can kill the microbes. Author: California Department of Toxic Substances Control - Office of Pollution Prevention Publication Date: 2003

www.alternativefuelstips.com Pollution is another great problem and countries from all over the world are trying to address it for many years now. Despite the measures to control pollution, there seems to be no effect at all. But with the new hydrogen fuel cell cars, pollution can be greatly reduced. In short, the cars of the future will be environment friendly. Another problem faced by many countries is the huge dependence on oil imports. Petroleum has a high demand in the market today but if the hydrogen fuel cell car can be realized the soonest, the demand oil imports will decrease http

The problem with vehicle pollution
Kids are most affected by vehicle pollution....
Future Haul- These fuels have been extensively tested for over 2 years on many vehicles, all vehicles were run AS IS, and no alterations were made on any of the vehicles. The results of these tests show that each vehicle not only improved in horse power and torque, but increased their MPG by an average of 75%, and as high as 200%. These fuels produce 90-99% LESS pollution than unleaded gasoline and diesel. All three fuels can be made very easily, and some fuels only take 30 minutes to mix and then can be used immediately. All of these fuels cost less than Unleaded Fuel and Diesel Fuel. Future Haul LLC is challenging All News Agencies across The United States of America, every TV News, Radio News, Newspaper, and Internet Automotive Websites, to come and try Future Haul LLC fuels in your own personnel vehicle or a test vehicle, then report on your own personnel results.

The issue of an increasingly damaged environment has more recently been brought to the attention of people all around the world. As we look deeper into the issue, we begin to understand that there is one main reason for all of the problems with the environment today: people. We need to realize that as inhabitants of the environment, we are the only ones who can make a change. Our lab is specifically designed to show the effects of motor vehicle pollution on the environment in urban cities. With all of the public transportation that is provided, there still seems to be massive amounts of cars that drive through the cities each day. The mobile sources contribute to air pollution in urban areas through combustion, which is burning fuel to create power, and evaporation, which converts liquid to a vapor. When the fuel does not burn completely, carbon monoxide forms; this is harmful because it reduces the oxygen that the human body needs. Nitrogen oxides are also a problem that results from motor vehicle fuel burning at high temperatures; humans are affected by this because it may cause breathing problems, as well as ozone and smog in the air which makes it difficult to see distances. The pollution problem due to motor vehicles in urban areas can be solved easily—people need to understand that there are alternative ways to travel. Cities are the most populated areas, and are also the most unnecessary places for cars. There are already forms of public transportation that are ...

Non-thermal verses thermal effects To learn more go to www.emfnews.org www.emfnews.org http Non-thermal verses thermal effects are also being considered by the Europeans in trying to establish increased margins of safety. "The NRPB and industry's position that mobiles are safe, is based on the facts that all handsets comply with current recommended limits, which are based on thermal considerations only. As you had already probably already been made aware, the literature is full of published papers showing damage and biological effects at power levels which were set deliberately well below thermal thresholds and therefore by definition could not have been caused by thermal damage. Even if we assume the thermal only argument to be correct, there are circumstances which the group should be aware of, where exposure exceeds even the thermal limits.Mobile users who wear metal rimmed glasses are intensifying the exposure to their eyes by 20 per cent and into the head by 6.3 per cent.Using a mobile in a vehicle can accelerate radiation levels by up to 10-fold due to resonance effect."78 These risks associated with remote telephone use can not be ignored. The maintenance of the official position that we are waiting "for the scientific proof" can not continue without corresponding increases in safety considerations rather than the current direction of increasing exposures and a lack of protection. www.emfnews.org "Intelligence documents show that Western governments have know about ...
Cell phones Cell towers Brain Tumors? Blood Brain Barrier Leakage... To learn more go to www.emfnews.org www.emfnews.org http "Scientists from Colorado University have shown that frequent mobile users had significantly depressed melatonin - a vital cancer-preventing hormone. An Australian study has linked the phones to a higher rate of brain cancer while a Swedish survey suggested that using a mobile phone for more than 15 minutes could lead to headaches and fatigue."22 The most difficult area of research is the complexity of interactions that are possible. Nevertheless a great deal can be gained by looking at the very specific sources of EMFs in determining both their effects and ways to limit human exposure. "It is difficult to deny that RFR at low intensity can affect the nervous system. However, data available suggest a complex reaction of the nervous system to RFR. Exposure to RFR does produce various effects on the central nervous system. The response is not likely to be linear with respect to the intensity of the radiation. Other parameters of RFR exposure, such as frequency, duration, waveform, frequency- and amplitude-modulation, etc, are important determinants of biological responses and affect the shape of the dose (intensity)-response relationship. In order to understand the possible health effects of exposure to RFR from mobile telephones, one needs first to understand the effects of these different parameters and how they interact with each other."23 As we ...

The increase in global marine traffic has resulted in a steep increase in marine pollution. The US and the EU have reacted by raising financial penalties for environmental polluters. Ship owners caught out can be fined up to $1 million in the US, and their ships can be barred from US ports for up to 5 years. Within the EU, France now fines captains guilty of dumping oil in to the sea up to 300 000 Euro. Eberhard Runge from the Hamburg-based company Mahle NFV has spent decades lobbying for better environmental protection at sea. The engineer has developed a filter system that works with ultraviolet light. Now that legislation has been tightened on sea pollution, demand for his technology is growing although the shipping companies are still sceptical.
