Climate change is the biggest challenge that the human race has ever face, and it’s going to take all of our innovation and technology to avert the worst of what’s to come. One of the largest problems we’re dealing with is excess carbon in the atmosphere, more than our planet is able to successfully pull out.
Carbon is excellent at trapping heat, meaning that more and more heat is being trapped in the atmosphere and causing global temperatures to increase. Scientists and engineers around the world are currently working on projects to try and capture the carbon emissions that we output every year, and there are some truly promising concepts being investigated.

When we look at the smartphones that we carry around with us every day, it’s incredibly easy to forget the decades of engineering that went into making them work as smoothly as they do. In fact, they are thousands of times more powerful than the computers that sent the first people to the moon, and if Moore’s Law is to be followed, smartphones will continue to get more and more advanced.

At the moment, the world has something of a transportation problem. Not only are most major cities around the world clogged almost every single day, but the amount of emissions released by these massive traffic congestions is becoming more and more of a health problem.
Individual cars don’t work well for large cities, as too many people having a single car in the morning leads to large jams and blockages, and increases the chance of accidents happening. Public transport, then, is the answer, and there are a few interesting projects and ideas in the works for what the future of public transportation is going to look at.

We’ve come a long way since the early days of mobile technology – giant phones that had limited reception and all they did was make phone calls. In 2020, the phone you carry around in your pocket is more powerful than the average computer of twenty years ago. It can also do a lot more than those computers.

Traditionally, we’ve planted almost all of our crops in the ground, usually in loamy soil, and for the most part, it works well. Unfortunately, many years of mono-culture systems has left much of our arable land quickly eroding, losing the nutrients in the top soils that are necessary for the growth of planet life.
