With a record-high dumped wastes of 30.5 billion tons, the Yangtze River in China can be considered as a ‘giant toilet bowl’ of Asia as waste production and illegal dumping in the area continue to worsen. Xinhua news agency reported the recent case of industrial, farming and human waste production in China has doubled compared a couple of decades ago with a 3.1 percent increase or 900 million tons of added trash being thrown in the river.

Powering Homes with Electricity from the Air

Electricity collected from the air could become the newest alternative energy source. Scientists have been such device to capture electricity from the air. It works much like solar cells capture sunlight and using them to light a house or recharge an electric car.

If we know how electricity builds up and spreads in the atmosphere, we can also prevent death and damage caused by lightning strikes, noting that lightning causes thousands of deaths and injuries worldwide and millions of dollars in property damage.

The notion of harnessing the power of electricity formed naturally has tantalized scientists for centuries. Sparks of static electricity formed as steam escaped from boilers. Workers who touched the steam even got painful electrical shocks. It's the electricity formed, for instance, when water vapor collects on microscopic particles of dust and other material in the air. But until now, scientists lacked adequate knowledge about the processes involved in formation and release of electricity from water in the atmosphere.
