On LED's, computer screens, TV's and Kindle books.
A problem with them is that thay put out a blue liight that keeps the pubils dialated which prevents melatonin from allowing restfull sleep.
I read that blue light filter glasses are available to block out the blue light of Kindles, LED lights, and TV's that block melatonin.
I asked my Optomitrist about that. He didn't know a thing about it, which I found disappointing.
Paper books are better to read than a Kindle type of computer for many reasons.
Paper books for example allow the reader to bookmark interesting subjects. I use post it notes to identify interesting parts.
I hang my clothes out to dry.
Filament lamps will be prefered by ludites and sold as heaters. I had trouble with CFL's. Flourescent lights contain murcury and tend to flicker when they wear out.
I started purchasing LED's through Alibaba from Chinese companies about five years ago. I also have dimmers on the LED bulbs. My electrical bill is only about $30/month in the depth of winter.
A problem is that many people don't understand brightness of lights (Kelvin). Many still purchase yellow warm lights which mimic Edisons lamps.
!!!! Is incandescent light still better than LED light?
Everything you want to know about
natural daylight: 10 natural daylight behind glass: 9 incandescent light: 8 really good LED light: 7.9 average LED light: 6
Sorry for my previous post that only showed an image of the earth.
The link to view current earth conditions in an interactive format is available at:
Click on 'earth' in the lower left hand corner to change paramaters - including wind, temperature, relative humidity, ocean currents, and much more.
I encourage everyone to explore it.
The earth can be spun around and zoomed in to see different areas.
I was in Bejing in the summer of 2001 which at the time had the worst sand storm to date. It was from a drought in Mongolia. The blowing sand scarred the tip of my nose.
Since then it's gotten way worse.
I hear reports that China, which surpassed the U.S. in carbon output and the U.S. have reached an agreement to reduce greenhouse emissions. China has implemented major projects for wind and solar systems. China has invested in solar cell energy which will help drop prices in U.S. for solar energy.
India needs to come next.
The U.S. is playing second fiddle to alternative energy to China.
The U.S. has the capability, but not the political will to lead the world in non-carbon energy sources. It's shamefull.
Though this is a report of a sandstorm in 2015. the one that happened while I was there was about the same.
One of the best businesses in China for the elite is smog and air pollution filters.
In fact the ultra wealthy have geodomes over there house and property so they can enjoy 'the great outdoors.'
Chris, the presupposition that humans can't possibly pollute to the point of destruction is likely widespread. What made sense in the past doesn't anymore, but cultural lag prevents us from interpreting planetary scale change. Perhaps those in the worst areas, like China, are waking up. But even in the US, the states most impacted by pollution due to industry deregulation and regulatory capture are most in denial. I post about this paradox in No Nonsense.
