In North America transportation accounts for 23% of the greenhouse gas emissions produced. To determine the amount of greenhouse gases produced, and to have a basis for comparison, a measurement known as “global warming potention” is used.

This project proposes the construction of a public leisure centre, which consists of a tropical garden and an indoor swimming pool, both within the same enclosure, so the installations can be enjoyed all through the year.

In order to define a unique and compact volume,

This idea make use of the wasted energy when any vehicle driver uses the brakes. It depends mainly on the potential energy of the passengers in the vehicle by transferring this energy to well distributed electrical generators along the the vehicle body.

This system uses the changing water level in Lake Ontario to turn one or two turbines to generate electricity. This system is only viable because the canal is between the lake and a large harbour (over 16 million square meters in surface area).

The sun is the largest fusion reactor we have available to us, and we do not make use of it as we should. But we are not to blame, it is the usage of "conventional" solar panels that cause the lack of notoriety for solar energy in the public.

Carp have escaped from fish farms and threaten fresh water ecologies. The rapidly growing and reproducing fish are pushing out native species in the Mississippi and Missouri rivers and are threatening the Great Lakes. Traditional methods have failed to hold the expansion of carp populations.

As we know natural energy resources are limited in this world. Everyone is thinking of non-conventional energy resources. A single non-conventional energy resource can not fulfill the whole need of this vast world. We have to produce or convert energies where we get even a little chance.

Silicon, being one of the most abundant elements in the universe, is also the best future energy material. Silicon metal, i.e., burns in Oxygen and Nitrogen generating big heat, decomposes water generating Hydrogen, can dehydrate Methanol to generate DME, a powerful gas that can replace LNG.

Chemo-Electro-Deposition Mining is a collection of technologies that exploits the acidic properties of Acid Mine Drainage to get electrical energy by means of ionic exchange.

This invention channels wave energy through float weights, cables, hydraulics and a generator into electricity for public use.

{Diagram 1}
Float weights* move up and down on the surface of water with each wave. The up and down motion of the float weights are transmitted into linear cable motion.
