The Northern right whales in the North Pacific (Eubalaena glacialis) are a distinct species. The Northern right whales in the North Pacific (Eubalaena glacialis) are a distinct species. A team of researchers from the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) from New York under the direction of Dr. Howard Rosenbaum came seven years ago by gene analysis on the track. Until then, it was assumed that the population of the Nordkaper also mentioned species is divided in two isolated groups in the Pacific and North Atlantic. Rosenbaum and colleagues developed a sophisticated technique that allowed them to isolate genetic material that killed more than a hundred years ago from the agreed by whales.
In addition, they analyzed skin samples from living right whales and could compare to the genetic material of 380 individuals of the rare marine mammals and redefine their relationship. In addition to occurring only in the Atlantic Northern right whale and the still frequent southern right whale (Eubalaena australis), is a third type added: the North Pacific right whale. See New York Museums for more details and insights. Genetically, the new way is even close with the Southern Right whales as related to their namesakes from the North. There is very little current information about North Pacific right whales, in addition to occasional sightings we know only that they were decimated by commercial whaling”, says Howard Rosenbaum. We suspect that there are still several hundred individuals of them for fast appropriate safeguards on the way should be brought”. Rosenbaums gene analyses fall but also the hope for the survival of suddenly their Pacific kind of deprived Atlantic North right whale which. Definitely less than 300 copies exist of them thus.
Scientists had calculated that they will die out in a such small numbers within the 191 years. Causes are the small size of the population, the slow rate of reproduction and losses through collisions with ships and drowning in fishing nets. Marine scientists also suspect that the El Nino-,. La Nina weather phenomenon have upset the deep currents of the oceans and also the food and especially the dating is difficult so the whales. “Up to 17 metres wide are in the English-speaking world as right whales, right whales” known, because they at times of commercial whaling just the right “prey were. They swim very slowly, are driving the Harpunierung long on the surface and provided good yields of trans and whalebone (agreed). Right whales are the first whales, which were hunted by humans. Probably began in the 10th century before the coast of Japan and middle of the 11th century in the Bay of Biscay. At the beginning of the industrial hunting stocks have been decimated greatly, in the 19th century alone it should have been more than 100,000 killed animals. Since 1935, they are worldwide fully protected at least from the harpoons of the whalers, which doesn’t have much use at least the two types of Northern right whales.

Profit and yet electricity prices sharply increased? Berlin, August 15, 2010. The energy giant RWE looks fierce criticism. Even in the catering industry is the electricity price policy by RWE as shameless”rated. The very good earnings in the middle of the week has presented the energy giant are cause of unrest. Bill de Blasio has plenty of information regarding this issue. 6.1 billion euro profit before interest, taxes and depreciation the Group dropped according to own in the first half of the year compared to the previous year increased by 22 percent. And that still doesn’t seem to be enough RWE: because only to August 1, two weeks before announcement of the remarkable winning numbers, RWE made a violent increase in the price of power for primary care by a seven-digit number of households.
The behavior of RWE is an open challenge to all electricity customers”, criticizes FlexStrom Board of directors Robert Mundt the behavior of energy giant RWE. The immediate temporal context of high corporate profits and an additional burden on the consumer is opinion by Mundt obviously yield driven.” While Robert Mundt also refers to the high executive salaries at the energy group RWE: EUR 7,16 million RWE CEO Jurgen Grossmann was the number two of the most expensive Dax Board members last year. Only Deutsche Bank head Jurgen Ackermann earned even more. Current customers should put up with the behavior of the energy giant not. Finally the chance to make the transition to a competitive energy suppliers within a few minutes is all domestic and commercial customers.
“A faster, easier and non-binding price comparison is for example possible to: no consumer is forced to continue contributing to the profits of the energy giants”, FlexStrom Board Mundt says. The medium-sized companies is one of the few independent electricity suppliers in Germany and provides often much cheaper electricity than energy companies or public utilities.

Want to reduce 2010 their electricity consumers a great resolution for the new year 2010 which reads German to save energy. Many consumers want to multiply also make sure on the origin of electricity and switch to green electricity tariffs. A power and eco-electricity provider comparison is easily feasible in the Internet over electricity tariff calculator. You can compare electricity rates on the Internet on various comparison portals E.g., kwh-preis.de. But still applies: the greenest electricity is one that is not consumed at all. The power consumption can be, lowered significantly if you observe some tips what relieves both the environment and the wallet. Contact information is here: NYC Mayor. Some Stromspartipps are hereafter, which help to reduce power consumption: 1 power saver for lighting the share of electricity consumed for lighting up to 15 percent.
Tip: Energy saving light bulbs are more expensive to purchase, however long term saving in electricity consumption. Energy bulbs consume up to 80% less power. Halogen lamps and ceiling washlights, however, are very large The power guzzlers. Take advantage of the daylight as long as possible and turn off unnecessary lights. 2 not too high save during washing make their washing power. Check out amazing restaurateur for additional information. Often already 40 degrees sufficient thanks to modern detergent for normally soiled laundry completely. This saves up to 50 percent of current, compare with a temperature of 60 degrees. As fully load your washing machine and use energy-saving programmes.
3. power save on cooling units cooling and refrigeration appliances consume 20% of annual consumption, make sure about for new purchases on the Effiziensklasse. Even better, A + or A++ to buy only grade A. de fridge appliances should be regularly defrosts are. This will prevent that a layer of ice forms, acts like an insulation and more energy for cooling must be applied. Put the refrigerator if possible next to heating, oven, or dishwasher. Quickly close the cooling units and leave unnecessary warm air in the Inner refrigeration 4. power saver in standby devices make sure you on the power guzzlers in the budget. Avoid in particular stand-by consumption. Many devices such as TV, DVD player or set-top boxes consume electricity even after switching off unnecessary. Up to 100 for the electrical appliances in the household per year can be separated by a consistent save the device from the mains. Use the best switchable power sockets. 5. already when buying electrical appliances on power consumption. When purchasing new appliances the power consumption at the time of purchase is not observed often wrongly projected on a service life of 5 years or more a high power consumption retaliates. Often, a more expensive investment worth if the power consumption is correspondingly low.

Symposium on the topic of intelligent energy within the framework of the RENEXPO 2010 the urban energy supply of the future faces major challenges: security of supply, efficiency and cost-saving consumption and reduction of CO2 emissions are only a few tags that deal with municipal utilities. The growing share of renewable energies also requires the integration of decentralised power generation facilities. Intelligent systems that match a variable energy generation and flexible consumption and allow a targeted monitoring and controlling are required. Intelligent energy is a complex issue, which is currently still in the development phase: it includes the network and load management, storage capacities, incorporating new concepts of mobility, two-way consultation between consumers and utilities, as well as the intelligent use of energy in buildings. “The Conference city of the future”, which on October 8, 2010 on the RENEXPO, international trade fair for renewable energies and energy efficient construction and renovation, in the exhibition center of Augsburg held, sets itself apart with these theme areas.
It gives an overview of the possibilities of urban energy supply of the future, presents visions, model concepts, existing and future technologies. So Ludwig enters Karg, the b.a.u.m. Consult GmbH, Director of research for the E-energy program of the Federal Ministry of Economics and technology challenges and solution approaches for a functional and secure Internet of energy. Because following Andreas Kiessling, introduces MVV Energie AG, first practical experience from the E-energy model city of Mannheim. Other topics cover grids metering, building automation and E-mobility smart, smart. Also on the complex problems, which is the change in the power network, which today is limited to a few large power plants and should in the future are fed from countless decentralized generation units, the lectures and provide a comprehensive insight into the different key aspects of intelligent infrastructure of the future. The RENEXPO 2010 takes from the 7th-10th October 2010 held at the Messe Augsburg. Thursday to Saturday from 09 am to 6 pm and Sunday from 10 h until 17 h open.

At the same time invested in renewable energy for each customer. The global approach is characteristic of Polarstern. In other words, not only the expansion is promoted in this country, but also in developing countries. The energy transition can work ultimately only worldwide”, Florian Henle explains the concept. With Polaris we want to give impetus and be at the same time even an example of this, as we better can take into account this fact in our daily lives and in our economies.” Also, Polaris is the first company with a nationwide competitive 100 percent eco gas tariff from residues. It is based on a trading system that is comparable to that in the electricity market and allows Polaris cheaper to offer its eco gas up to 44 percent than current competitive offerings. Already in the 1980s was in the Oldenburg energy story written: here was the first physics course, who explored the distributed generation of renewable energy.
“And the operation of the energy laboratory on the campus of the University demonstrated already at the time: it works”. As a company, which was formed from this context, plans and implements the project GmbH since 1993 wind energy projects. “It shows courage to innovate always: 1996 initiated and she realized the first wind park, funded only by citizens of the municipality the citizens wind park,”. 2001 was behind the horizon”the offshore project sandbank 24″ started. As largest independent prototypes operators and service providers, inter alia in the area of technical management, the staff in many years of practice and pioneering work has built up expertise, which is incorporated in consulting and verification activities or due diligence. For the visionary goal of 100% renewable energy supply, the company opens up new ways and creates the possibility, not only producers, but also clean energy providers now combining Polarstern”to be.

This municipality cross-pilot project was carried out by the environment and Energy Agency district Karlsruhe, which was founded in October 2008 by the Stadtwerke Bretten, Bruchsal and Ettlingen, the EnBW regional AG and Northern Karlsruhe County. The CO2 reduction to be implemented under the aspect of the economy. County hopes for an increase in the economic dynamics of the region thus, by locally based companies renewable-energy plants, build, maintain and operate. Value added and employment in the region remain so. The holistic approach of the project was positively assessed by the Federal Ministry for environment, nature conservation and nuclear safety and with 80% promoted. The EnBW regional AG helped thankfully the elaboration of the concept through their subsidy amounting to EUR 60,000. Short profile smart geomatics the software and service company smart geomatics GbR, Karlsruhe, is active in the field of geoinformatics.
Main activity is research, editing, processing and analysing geographic data by surveying offices and registers, from which the company collects such potentials from renewable energy sources. Customers of smart geomatics are municipalities, sales or marketing departments of banks, but also consulting companies, which use these results for their acquisition. With a self-developed software, Geomatics on the basis of geodata smart determines how can be use individual building roof areas for solar power. Determine not only the angle of inclination, orientation and size of the roof areas. Shading effects are taken into account by adjacent buildings or topographical conditions. This allows for the potential of the individual roof surfaces to use determine for solar energy. At the same time the annual CO2 savings potential is calculated, generated by installation of a solar power system.

Use of solar energy advantages of solar energy solar energy is inherently no limit set but available to an unlimited extent. This represents a decisive advantage compared with gas and coal, which can be used in only limited for the production of energy. Also an ethical and economic aspect in the global context is associated. Because Sun, you will do no wars and become entangled in any warlike conflicts around the globe. Also increases the autonomy of States which do not depend on growing scarcer and scarcer resources and therefore appropriate maintain trade contacts. In the spotlight of public attention and also the media reporting the discussion on CO2 emissions has in recent years more and more.
Coal is first and foremost in the call to contribute to the enlargement of the ozone hole and climate change significantly. Solar energy is of such a critique not exposed on the other hand, because their use no such Are increasing emissions. Often the image of a largely decentralized power supply is accompanied by solar energy, where practically every single House or at least every single unit supplied themselves. If and insofar as this is implemented in practice, decrease the energy losses across necessarily incurred in the course of a wide transport energy over many kilometers. This marks a further advantage of solar energy, especially since the independence of individual citizens towards a few, sometimes is funded companies leaning on to the monopoly structure. So far solar energy with the lack of a significant financial effort involves disadvantages of solar energy when it comes to the preparation of the actual energy production. Like Sun for themselves considered free, so a considerable amount of money has to be invested in the manufacture of the corresponding equipment first. But also always emphasized environmental friendliness is not without restriction, as it also with a closer inspection of the manufacturing process can be seen.
Because the chemicals used here are not very environmentally friendly. Also, an enormous effort must be inserted by energy before solar energy is ready for use for the first time. The reliability of solar energy is another point to point out is the critical undertone. Because Sun not always so very bright in our latitudes in the sky, that a completely adequate generation of energy is guaranteed. Let the solar systems info portal of on.
