As a direct consequence 1.6 million people die every year from diarrheal diseases (including cholera) attributable to lack of access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation and 90% of these are children under 5, mostly in developing countries.

The total solar energy absorbed by the Earth in one hour is more energy than the world used in one year.  So, the idea of tapping the power of the sun may seem like a no-brainer. The process of getting solar panels installed, however, is quite the opposite, fraught with specs, technical details and terms like "albedo."
Make Billions with Diesel from Bugs Excrement
Created 9/24/2008 7:47:37 AM 
Scientists in California have genetically altered small bugs so that when they feed on agricultural waste they excrete crude oil. The bugs are bacteria from industrial yeast or nonpathogenic strains of E. coli. The fatty acids normally excreted by them during fermentation are molecularly very close to crude oil. Through genetic modification of the DNA, they can easily change the process to create crude oil. The process is basically the same as using natural bacteria to produce ethanol, although the energy-intensive final process of distillation is virtually eliminated because they excrete a substance that is almost pump-read.

73 billion Styrofoam cups/plates and 190 billion plastic containers and bottles are thrown away every year. Medical evidence suggests that chemicals, as benzene & styrene in EPS (expanded polystyrene) foam are carcinogenic and may leach into food and drink. EPS cups, containers and plastic bags, are a major source of pollution on our beaches - especially after a rainstorm. EPS breaks down into small pieces, often mistaken for food by marine animals, birds and fish.
Grow Your Own Diesel

The tropical rainforest tree Copaifera langsdorffii is known as the "diesel tree" or "kerosene tree". It produces a large amount of terpene hydrocarbons in its wood and leaves. One tree can produce 30 to 40 liters of hydrocarbons per year. The oil is collected by tree tapping much like rubber trees, but instead of rubbery latex, it gives up a natural biodiesel.

Rain in one of our main supply of fresh water and has a tremendous importance in the distribution of plant and animal life in this planet, but in congested, over-paved metropolitan cities, most of this precipitation is wash down gutters and wasted. Rain collection has been one method used to gather this gift from the sky and now a new method tries to capture the kinetic energy associated with the falling raindrops.
