Only company claims, its global facilities are now 100-percent run by renewable energy:Go green

The move is in line with the company’s 2015 plan to push toward 100-percent renewable energy, a list that includes all of Apple’s data centers as of 2014. As of today, the company’s officially adding retail stores, offices and co-located facilities to that list, covering 43 countries, including the US, China, UK and India.

The addition of nine manufacturing partners, meanwhile, brings the total number up to 23 suppliers promising to produce their products entirely with clean energy. How the companies involved actually hit these numbers is, unsurprisingly, somewhat more complex.

“Where feasible, we produce our own renewable energy by building our own renewable energy facilities, including solar arrays, wind farms, biogas fuel cells, and micro-hydro generation systems,” the company writes in its 2017 Environmental Responsibility Report. “Where it’s not feasible to build our own generation, we sign long-term renewable energy purchase contracts, supporting new, local projects that meet our robust renewable energy sourcing principles.”

The push toward renewable energy has included some creative solutions, including 300 solar rooftops in Japan and 800 in Singapore. The company says it’s currently running 25 renewable energy projects globally, with 15 more in the process of being built. That will bump green energy capability from 626 megawatts to 1.4 gigawatts, by its count — and the finally tally doesn’t appear to include carbon offsets, unlike some of the competition. 

It’s easy to see how a rollback of the Clean Power Plan could ultimately have an adverse effect on the company’s bottom line.

“We’re committed to leaving the world better than we found it. After years of hard work we’re proud to have reached this significant milestone,” Tim Cook said in a release tied to the news. “We’re going to keep pushing the boundaries of what is possible with the materials in our products, the way we recycle them, our facilities and our work with suppliers to establish new creative and forward-looking sources of renewable energy because we know the future depends on it.”

China is spreading its forest to the area of Ireland in 2018

The head of China’s State Forestry Administration Zhang Jianlong announced the plans at a meeting on Thursday and said the government wants to grow 6.66 million hectares of new forest this year.

Mr. Jianlong added:

China aims to plant new forests in 2018 covering an area roughly the size of Ireland in efforts to improve the environment.

Companies, organizations, and talent that specialize in greening work are all welcome to join in the country’s massive greening campaign.

It is encouraging that China’s forest has been recovering in the midst of its daunting environmental challenges such as severe air pollution and water shortages.Cooperation between government and social capital will be put on the priority list 

Forests made up 17 percent of China’s land mass in 2000, according to figures from Global Forest Watch. The tree monitoring organization says over 8 million hectares of tree cover was lost between 2001 and 2016.

The biggest annual decrease in eight years came in 2016 when over 700,000 hectares disappeared.

Michigan State University published a report on deforestation in China in 2016. Decades of logging, floods, and conversion to farmland were blamed.

However, the report noted China’s successful forest conservation and restoration programmes since the beginning of the 21st Century.

Elon Musk is striving for the best he could

What comes in your mind as you think of some one who strives to make this planet sustainable for coming generations. The man who intends to swap everything that hurts planet with the one that enhances planet life anyway. Yes, Elon Reeve Musk is an American business visionary, creator, and speculator. He is best referred to for his part as CEO of electric-auto producer Tesla Motors and as a fellow benefactor of online cash exchange framework PayPal, and of business space program SpaceX. He has dipped himself in various projects whether you name PayPal or Tesla, Hyperloop or Space X.

His one of the project, he is focused on is to build a network of underground transport of dedicated track which is under pilot test in California.

Elon was born in South Africa, where he spent his youth and youthfulness. He was raised fundamentally by his dad, who was an architect. Elon wound up plainly inspired by PCs at a youthful age and started programming in his teenagers. After secondary school, Elon immigrated to Canada, where he went to school, and later exchanged to the University of Pennsylvania in the United States. When he was 24, he got just days into Ph.D. learns at Stanford University when he chose to leave and begin the first of what turned into a progression of multi-million-dollar business wanders with his brother, he began Zip2 with just $2,000, an organization that helped other people post substance, for example, maps and index postings.

Elon Musk is essentially known for the part he played in establishing the broadly known electronic cash exchange site Paypal.com. In spite of the fact that the organization been the subject of a few contentions, it remains the most confined in the medium for Internet business. Nowadays, Musk applies a similar creative energy and capacity to advance that he used to make PayPal a win to his authority of Tesla Motors, of which he is by and by the director. The little car producer seems, by all accounts, to be on the precarious edge of significant leaps forward the business, looking to make usable, pragmatic electric autos that can really rival gas controlled vehicles. Musk, a designer, has had a necessary influence in the improvement of the organization’s leader vehicle, the Tesla Roadster.

Musk posted the photo on his Instagram account and from that point forward it is making a buzz in tech and logical circles. The photo demonstrates a man wearing the suit and is standing appropriate by the crew dragon case — a space vehicle which the organization is making to send space travelers to international space station. A while back, SpaceX and Boeing held hands with NASA in a cost-sparing organization to give a help and more affordable go to the ISS for their Commercial Crew Program.

 

Spacesuit looks cool and smooth. The primary full-body picture uncovers the gloves, grasp what’s more, boots outline for the first run through. The boot looks lightweight — meaning it will help space explorers amid portability. In addition, at a more intensive look, there are dark cushioned ranges at the back of space suit’s shirt and gasp, which may be intended to give solace to space explorers while they sit in the case.

 

The suit looks more like a defensive suit of expert bikers rather than a space suit. Be that as it may, it won’t be utilized for spacewalks yet will be worn by space explorers while they are in the case. Moreover, it will secure space explorers in the event of loss of lodge weight in-flight. The space suit is not a mockup rather it has been tried in twofold vacuum weight and is in working condition.

 

Musk said that he will release more data with respect to the space suit soon

No more Metro’s, Cable cars coming soon to travel in lahore

For the past few years, Lahore, the capital of Punjab, has been at front and center when it comes to new transportation projects and this time the situation is no different. After the initiation of Metro Buses and Speedo Buses for feeder routes, CM Punjab is looking to introduce ropeways transport in the city. It has several benefits the best one is it will promote go green policy of government although initially, it will cost some tree’s to go waste it will be zero emission source of carbon unlike any other transport

Shahbaz Sharif has directed the concerned authorities to prepare feasibility reports to run the ropeways transport featuring cable cars at three different points in Lahore; from Imamia Colony to Railway Station, Jehangir Tomb to Greater Iqbal Park, from Jalo Mor to Thokar Niaz Baig and also another one from Islamabad to Murree.

Reportedly, a foreign ropeway manufacturing company will work on this new project to provide cable car transport, alongside Punjab government. The new project is aimed at reducing the burden of traffic on the roads whilst providing an innovative way to travel within the city.

Currently, the Orange Line Train Project is underway in Lahore and CM Punjab is also looking to introduce Blue and Purple line train in Lahore. Feasibility study and presentation of the Blue and Purple line projects have already been completed and the two projects will be worth around three trillion

Why Trump is leaving 195 countries accord of Climate change Paris agreement?

Climate change is already impacting the planet, but the specific goal of the Paris Agreement is to prevent the planet from warming by more than 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit), which scientists warn could have especially damaging consequences

The Paris Agreement is a deal reached between 195 countries to gradually reduce emissions that cause climate change in order to prevent a major increase in the global temperatures that could raise sea levels, spark major droughts, and lead to more dangerous storms.

The agreement, which was negotiated in 2015 and took effect in November 2016, was spurred by the overwhelming global scientific consensus that rising global temperatures over the last several decades are caused by man-made activity.

3 reasons why Trump is not interested

Number 1: He has repeatedly tweeted and said in campaign speeches that climate change is a “hoax” and even suggested that China — another frequent Trump target — was behind the plot. China won’t end using fossil fuels

Number 2: Trump has rattled allies by criticizing trade agreements and military alliances.

Number 3: Trump is not a fan of the regulations and spending that the previous administration proposed to meet its goals, which he warns will reduce economic growth.

What happens if the US withdraws

The agreement won’t fall apart overnight. Already, reports suggest China and the European Union are prepared to publicly recommit to the agreement with or without the United States. Some experts say China appears to be reducing emissions ahead of schedule, in part because the country is phasing out coal quicker to reduce choking smog in its major cities.

Trump also can’t technically withdraw from the agreement until November 2019. It’s possible he could speed things up by abandoning the underlying Senate-approved climate treaty that the agreement is linked to.
