Sun, Sea and Easy Living!

All during the last spring and summer I have taken leave from writing for Nesseq.com, but it does not mean that I’ve been just lazy. Actually I prepared an article, called Beach Live and I shot lots of pictures for it. But somehow I didn’t publish it. Perhaps the topic is a little off-season now, still the next summer will surly come and perhaps we could think about some solutions for the problems mentioned here. I know more people who feel uncomfortable in the mountains than people...

Water and Energy Demand

Water and Energy Demand

Water (1) is such a everyday item that no one is really wasting any thought about it. It is simply taken for granted that it exists. And water does exist in abundance, just that the water for human consumption is only a miniscule fraction of all the water on earth.  The situation will aggravate with the expected Global Population Growth (2) from now, about seven billion to nine billion people at the year 2050! The amount of potable water remains the same. Unless technology is utilized to...

Bottled Drinking Water

Hydrogen is supposed the most plentiful element in the universe. This is the stuff, which feeds our sun. Water consists of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. Without water life, as we know it, would not be possible. Certainly human beings, which are made of about 70 percent water, could not live. A human being can only survive for a couple of days without water. Only oxygen is more important! Only minutes without it and the human dies or gets the brain damaged. About 70 percent of the...

Oil Rigs in the Fight against Climate Change

After the bad experience with the Deepwater Horizon oil rig it is about time to come to the rescue of Off Shore Oil Rigs in general. The technology of the rigs have a high potential in the fight against the Climate Change. The reader might ask, how’s that? If the public hears about off shore oil rigs it is negative news. Mostly an environmental catastrophe like the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The avid reader might ask now, what are the good news about the oil rigs? Many cities on the...

Summer Time and the Waters are Flowing!

It is summer again, at least in the northern hemisphere, and it is hot, very hot indeed. In the southern part of France, a couple of weeks ago, a devastating flood occurred. 19 people died. Now floods are always happening and in some parts of the world it is totally normal for floods to happen during the summer, but not in southern France with it’s Mediterranean climate. In the south of France it should be quiet dry in the summer. It could be regarded as a freak of nature if this incident...

Wasting Water in the Holy Land

Wasting Water in the Holy Land

This article was planned for a long time. It was supposed to be series of articles about water waste in Israel. Last week I traveled through the land and took some pictures. I had troubles of finding the right intro to the article. But yesterday I started the series with the article about wasting the condensed water of air conditioners. A reader by the name of Mike posted a comment and gave me the right intro. Water is such a scarce commodity that it becomes highly political. It might even...
