Carbon dioxide will be on the planet for thousands of years. Be careful when buying toys —- FocusNote time to learn ‘eco-friendly way of life’ … Winter in Russia began with abnormally warm weather. About 50 million Russians live in conditions of increased air pollution. MEP 6 times increase penalties for emissions into the rivers. The city authorities have criticized the ‘environmental rating’. In the Polish Poznan UN climate summit takes place.

On the island of St. Helena is the oldest living animal on Earth. Scientists have found no explanation of reproduction of some species. More than five hundred whales died in the icy captivity. New population of endangered monkeys discovered in northern Vietnam. WWF published a guide ‘environmentally friendly image life ‘. —- A short review of the major environmental news for the week. —- Environmentalists presented card household waste disposal in Moscow Environmentalists submitted online internet card household waste disposal and the location automata (fandomatov) for receiving aluminum cans and bottles from the population in Moscow. ‘With our card Muscovites find out where in the capital can take trash to recycling. It gives addresses of household waste disposal in Moscow explanation of what waste they accept, and also addresses fandomatov where you can drop aluminum cans and plastic bottles’, – the head of Greenpeace toxic Alexey Kiselev at a press conference in RIA Novosti News. —- Carbon dioxide will stay on Earth for hundreds of thousands of years, effects of atmospheric pollution by carbon dioxide will be felt for hundreds of thousands of years. On this, the study said researchers to disprove widespread belief that the atmosphere quickly recover after the cessation of carbon dioxide emissions. ‘The study shows that carbon dioxide, which now goes into the atmosphere from our homes, cars and factories continue to heat up our planet hundreds of thousands of years “, – quotes the scientists newspaper Independent. One of the study’s authors, Professor David Archer of the University of Chicago warns that ‘climate impact of carbon dioxide emissions will be longer than a Stonehenge, longer than the time capsule will lie (memorial container with the attributes of the era, intended for disposal), longer than a human civilization. ” —- Experts call for parents to be careful when buying toys during the holidays – many of them may contain dangerous toxins Christmas or New Year’s gift a child can have serious health problems, child – many Plastic products have been marketed, contain hazardous chemicals, including phthalates and lead, experts warn.

Experts Public Interest Research Group / PIRG, USA / stress that asthma, as well as accidental ingestion of small elements – the leading cause of death from toys for children. However, this risk can be prevented by avoiding overly complex design, with many details, weaves and knots of products. Yet another danger, seemingly almost impossible to find – is the presence of toxins in the material. —- Release Distribution: 326 issue a weekly mailing of environmental ECOportal.

Particles Energy

In recent years much has been written and said about the physical nature of the vacuum. With some approximation, the real space, separated from each other planets, stars, galaxies, is a perfect vacuum. What we now know about its properties? From the point of view modern physics a perfect vacuum does not exist. The vacuum is an oscillating field that interacts with other fields. Already relatively weak gravitational field near the star causes distortion space, and in the presence of a strong electromagnetic field of an electron, or intranuclear forces appear in a vacuum virtual particles. They always appear in pairs – the particle-antiparticle pairs and disappear quickly, while existing in time is considerably less than the most short-lived elementary particles. Nevertheless, it is theoretically proved that the superstrong field can lift the particles from the vacuum, making them thus in a very real particles, have well-defined rest mass.

This means that the vacuum has energy, however, so slight that it can not be measured by any currently existing devices. If the vacuum is able to regenerate in substance, according to the law of conservation of energy, it should probably mean the physical destruction of a three-dimensional space with earlier this energy! Conversely, perhaps there may be processes in which the substance can be transformed into a spatial field as a result of energy dissipation. This process is even more preferable since it is accompanied by an increase in entropy of the system. Between matter and space is not, therefore, an irresistible face and they are in certain circumstances may transform into each other.

Imagine, for example, a model reduced that the Sun would be represented by a ball of football (about 22 cm in diameter). At this scale, the Earth would be 23.6 m away and would be a sphere with just 2 mm in diameter (the moon would be about 5 cm from the ground and would have a diameter of about 0.5 mm). Jupiter and Saturn would ball with about 2 cm in diameter, to 123 and 226 m from the Sun respectively. Pluto would be 931 m away from the Sun, with close to 0.3 mm in diameter. As soon as the nearest star (Proxima Centauri) would be 6,332 km from the Sun, and star Syrian 13.150 km.

main objects of the central system Solar star El Sol is the star of the planetary system found in the Earth; Therefore, it is the closest to the Earth and the star with greater apparent brightness. Its presence or its absence in the sky determine, respectively, the day and the evening. The energy radiated by the Sun is harnessed by photosynthetic beings, which constitute the basis of the food, thus being the main source of life energy chain. It also provides the energy that keeps running climate processes. The Sun is a star located in the phase called main sequence, with a type spectral G2, which was formed about 5000 million years ago and will remain on the main sequence approximately another 5000 million years. The Sun, along with the Earth and all the celestial bodies that orbit to its form around the Solar System. Planets on 24 August 2006, in Prague, in the XXVI General Assembly the International Astronomical Union (IAU), excluded Pluto as a planet in the Solar System. After a long dispute about this resolution, the decision was taken unanimously.

This recognizes the error of having awarded the category of Planet Pluto in 1930, year of its discovery. From that day the Solar system is made up of 8 planets. 8 Planets of the Solar system, according to its proximity to the Sun, are: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Planets are stars that describe paths called orbits to rotate around the Sun, have enough mass for its gravity to overcome rigid body forces so that they assume a spherical hydrostatic equilibrium (practically) and have cleared the neighbourhood of its orbit of planetesimals. Scientists have called Saturn, Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune gas planets in their atmospheres contain gases such as helium, hydrogen, and methane, without knowing with certainty its surface structure. Dwarf planets shortly after its discovery in 1930, Pluto was classified as a planet by the International Astronomical Union (IAU). However, based on subsequent discoveries, a debate was opened by some, in order to reconsider that decision. Finally, on August 24, 2006 the IAU decided that the number of planets is not extended to 12, as proposed in the meeting that kept its members in Prague, but that was reduced from 9 to 8. The big hurt of this new cosmic order was, again, the controversial Pluto, whose small size and its dynamic evolution in Solar system led to the members of the IAU to exclude definitively from its new definition of planet.
