What renewable energies are the most appropriate for the  tourism sector?
Learn about the benefits that renewable energies have for the hotel sector and also the requirements that are demanded. What is more, the viability of these installations depending on the demand you face as hotel entrepreneurs will be analysed. Energy sources: Renewable Energy: solar energy, wind power, Geothermal energy, Biomass. Do not run out over time Non-renewable energy: Run out over time. Generate waste Solar energy: Solar thermal energy: Heat from the sun. Application: mainly hot water. Performance Save 80% on hot water. return on investment: 2-10 years. Photovoltaic: Light from the sun. Application: Isolated systems (irrigation, lighting, ...) and connected (solarium, rooftops ...). Performance Low (12-13%).. return on investment: Long term. Wind Power: It is the energy we collect from wind power. Advantage: It can be applied in a space that is being used for something else too. Advantage: - Good level of technological development and business competitiveness. - Implementation is fast and creates jobs. - Synergistic effect such as saving energy with alternative sources. Disadvantage: - Causes environmental problems. - It has technological limitations. To put this energy into your tourism business you must: analyse the wind, find a feasible place, have permission and take stock of the energy you consume and that which you want to implement. Geothermal Energy is extracted from the heat beneath the surface of the Earth by an underground heat pump. Uses the Earth as an energy source during cold periods or as an energy dissipater in summer. Advantage: - Resource availability. - High energy efficiency and high durability. - No effect on the landscape. Disadvantage: - Very high implementation costs. - Risks of toxic contaminants and emission of energy sources (heat). - Limitation on their location in places. - Can cause environmental problems. - Limited capability to cool spaces. Biomass is obtained by burning wood residues, fodder from crops, food waste, paper, manure and other byproducts. Advantages: Can be stored, Low cost. Disadvantages: Contaminates, can require a lot of resources.
Visions Episode 84: Our Energy Future
The world's energy needs have significantly increased as a result of industrial development and population growth, and our limited supply of fossil fuels is failing to meet demand. University of Melbourne researchers are among many working toward a solution to this energy crisis and in this episode of Visions we take a closer look at various alternative energy research projects.

What is Sustainability? | Mocomi Kids
https://mocomi.com/ presents: What is Sustainability? An informative video on Sustainability, For humans, sustainability is the potential for long-term maintenance of well being, which has ecological, economic, political and cultural dimensions. Here are a few ways in which your actions can contribute to sustainability. Lifestyle - Your lifestyle is your choice and you can change it. For example, when you go to the grocery store, make sure you always carry a cloth bag. This way the shopkeeper does not have to give you many plastic bags. Fixing - If your watch, or a toy, or a camera is broken or not working, try getting it fixed before you buy yourself a new one. Recycle - Try and be conscious about the things around you. When you consume something, see if you can re-use it later. Learn more about how we can contribute to sustainability.

How to fuel the future | The Economist
America, under President Donald Trump, is securing its “energy independence” with oil and gas. But unlike fossil fuels, renewables will not increase global warming —and China is moving fast. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: https://econ.st/2xvTKdy Oil moves the world around and creates powerful countries. Oil is such a vital commodity that it provoked wars throughout the 20th century. The few countries that produce it, try to keep control of it to ensure its riches stay at home. Those who do not have it, strive to get it. In the 1930s Saudi Arabia was one of the poorest countries in the world but the discovery of oil transformed it and Saudi Arabia has amassed $515.6 billion in sovereign wealth funds. It has become the linchpin of a powerful cartel that sometimes rations oil to push up prices. The United States is now the biggest producer of oil and gas owing to its shale revolution. It has tapped abundant reserves through fracking - a technology that uses high-pressure water and sand to fracture rock deep below the ground to extract hydrocarbons. This shale revolution has helped the United States become less dependent on oil imported from Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, Iraq, and other OPEC countries. More oil and gas on global markets has also benefited the world's energy consumers by pushing down costs. Oil still remains the primary fuel, supplying almost 1/3 of the world's energy but its heyday may soon be over, despite growing demand. By 2040 the world's global energy use is set to increase by 30 percent. That energy must be much cleaner if the world wants to prevent catastrophic global warming. In the past coal and gas were less expensive than renewable technology but their costs have come down dramatically. There is now a race among some nations to create more efficient renewable technologies to reduce pollution and be more energy self-sufficient. China is the world's largest consumer of coal and the second largest of oil but it also now leads the world in clean energy. one third of the world's new wind power and solar panels is installed in China, and it sells more electric cars than any other country. The quest for energy self-sufficiency is a big motivation for many countries. China is moving fast, and America under President Donald Trump, is securing its energy independence with oil and gas. But unlike oil and gas renewables will not increase global warming. The long term transition to clean energy will throw up new global challenges. It will create tensions in unstable parts of the Middle East as oil revenue starts to dry up. Another challenge is that wind and sun are intermittent. renewables may require vast shared electricity grids spanning boarders to make them more efficient. To stop global warming the world needs a huge collaboration over our shared energy future. If we fail, wars over scarce resources could be even worse in the 21st century than in the 20th.

Twitter: http://twitter.com/Sustain_Illustr Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/sustainabilityillustrated Videos are created by Alexandre Magnin using years of experience drawing and working as a sustainability consultant with businesses and communities: http://www.amcreative.org ** This video was created with a group of grade 3 kids (8-9 years old) from Saint Michel de Picpus (Paris) to explain sustainable development to other children. Things such as waste, food and transportation are presented in a simple way with a superhero (Ecoman) and a vilain (Dump-it-man). Original script written by Marion and Pauline from sb factory. Adaptation and translation into English: Sarah Brooks. Illustrations (inspired by drawings by the children) and video creation: Alexandre Magnin. Narration and voices: Vincent Tong. Music: "Morning stroll" by Josh Kirsch and "Sing Swing Bada Bing" by Doug Maxwell / Media Rights Productions ** Hey kids! Did you hear about the grade three class who partnered with Ecoman to beat the dreaded Dump It Man to make a better world? Check it out! It all started out as a normal day, but when the children arrived at school, the playground was filled with garbage, and on top of it stood the dreaded Dump It Man. Horrors! What to do?? The class had been studying how to be green, so they knew to call their friend Ecoman. Ecoman was busy protecting the Amazonian rainforest, but he was able to arrive in just a few seconds – thanks to his renewable energy jetpack. “Hey Ecoman!” cried the class. “ What’s going on here??” Ecoman looked around. “Ah!” he said. “Someone has been duped into dumping! If we don’t want the whole world to look like this, we have to recycle. Luckily, we have a system to do this: different waste goes into different bins. One for glass, one for plastic, one for cardboard and newspapers and one for everything else. If we do this, then glass can be melted and made into new glass; paper can be recycled, and plastic turned into hangers, bottles or even a new sweater!” “Thanks, Ecoman!” the class shouted. Later that day, the class sat down to have lunch and found pale, tasteless tomatoes on their plates. “BLECH!” They could see the dreaded Dump It Man sneering in the corner, so they called Ecoman again who was busy protecting endangered animals. “Hey Ecoman! What’s going on???” Ecoman explained that the Earth gives us fruits and vegetables all year round but different ones grow in different seasons. For example, rhubarb comes in the spring, tomatoes in the summer, pumpkins in the fall, and in the winter we get carrots. And when we respect natural cycles, Nature helps us, for example by giving us ladybugs, who eat the aphids who would otherwise eat our plants. “Yay, Nature!” At the end of this strange day, the children left school, only to see tons of pollution in the city. Dump It Man was there too – laughing. Ecoman was able to leave his work installing solar panels that brought electricity to a village without lights and arrive to answer the children’s question. “Ecoman!” the class shouted. “Why is the air so grey and smelly? Can’t we do without these polluting cars??” “Absolutely!” said Ecoman. “This is already happening. Lots of people are riding bikes to work, or travelling by public transport or carpool. You can help by doing this too. Also, new, non-polluting options are being invented everyday – things like electric cars and solar planes like the Solar Impulse that flew around the world using only energy from the sun. So you see, when we work together to be green, Dump It Man is outta here!!” Ecoman then left with his awesome renewable energy jet pack to save the bees! What a day for that class!! And who knows…maybe tomorrow it will be YOUR CLASS!!!

Jeff Bezos Reveals Why He's Spending Billions Of Dollars To Go To Space
The founder of Blue Origin and founder of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, was recently interviewed by the CEO of Axel Springer, Mathias Döpfner. Bezos talked about why he considers Blue Origin to be above anything else he does. Tech Insider tells you all you need to know about tech: gadgets, how-to's, gaming, science, digital culture, and more. Subscribe to our channel and visit us at: http://www.businessinsider.com/sai TI on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/techinsider TI on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/tech_insider/ TI on Twitter: https://twitter.com/techinsider -------------------------------------------------- Following is the transcript of the video: Mathias Döpfner: ... Could you share with us the vision of Blue Origin and the idea of space tourism with reusable rockets? Jeff Bezos: Yes. This is super important to me, and I believe on the longest timeframe - and really here I'm thinking of a timeframe of a couple of hundred years, so over millions of decades - I believe and I get increasing conviction with every passing year, that Blue Origin, the space company, is the most important work that I'm doing. And so there is a whole plan for Blue Origin. Döpfner: Really, so you'd say retail, e-commerce, clouds, publishing - that's all less relevant than the space project. Bezos: Yes, and I'll tell you why. First of all, of course, I'm interested in space, because I'm passionate about it. I've been studying it and thinking about it since I was a five-year-old boy. But that is not why I'm pursuing this work. I'm pursuing this work, because I believe, if we don't, we will eventually end up with a civilization of stasis, which I find very demoralizing. I don't want my great-grandchildren's great-grandchildren to live in a civilization of stasis. We all enjoy a dynamic civilization of growth and change. Let's think about what powers that. We are not really energy-constrained. Let me give you just a couple of numbers. If you take your body - your metabolic rate as a human it's just an animal, you eat food, that's your metabolism - you burn about a 100 Watts. Your power, your body is the same as a 100-Watt light bulb. We're incredibly efficient. Your brain is about 60 Watts of that. Amazing. But if you extrapolate in developed countries where we use a lot of energy, on average in developed countries our civilizational metabolic rate is 11 000 Watts. So, in a natural state, where we're animals, we're only using a 100 Watts. In our actual developed-world state, we're using 11 000 Watts. And it's growing. For a century or more, it's been compounding at a few percent a year - our energy usage as a civilization. Now if you take baseline energy usage globally across the whole world and compound it at just a few percent a year for just a few hundred years, you have to cover the entire surface of the Earth in solar cells. That's the real energy crisis. And it's happening soon. And by soon, I mean within just a few 100 years. We don't actually have that much time. So what can you do? Well, you can have a life of stasis, where you cap how much energy we get to use. You have to work only on efficiency. By the way, we've always been working on energy efficiency, and still we grow our energy usage. It's not like we have been squandering energy. We have been getting better at using it with every passing decade. So, stasis would be very bad I think. Now take the scenario, where you move out into the Solar System. The Solar System can easily support a trillion humans. And if we had a trillion humans, we would have a thousand Einsteins and a thousand Mozarts and unlimited (for all practical purposes) resources and solar power unlimited for all practical purposes. That's the world that I want my great-grandchildren's great-grandchildren to live in. By the way, I believe that in that timeframe we will move all heavy industry off of Earth and Earth will be zoned residential and light industry. It will basically be a very beautiful planet. We have sent robotic probes to every planet in this solar system now and believe me this is the best one. Döpfner: Jeff when can I buy the first ticket to do a little space tour. Bezos: We are going to be… So the first tourism vehicle - we won't be selling tickets yet - but we may put humans in it at the end of this year or at the beginning of next year. We are very close. We are building a very large orbital vehicle. We have been working on that for more than five years. It will fly for the first time in 2020. The key is reusability. This civilization I'm talking about of getting comfortable living and working in space and having millions of people and then billions of people and then finally a trillion people in space - you can't do that with space vehicles that you use once and then throw away. It's a ridiculous, costly way to get into space.

Ep.14-Tourism Resources Protection -- BONTV
Tourism is a double-edged sword. It both contributes to local economic development and leads to environmental degradation. Areas like the northern slope of Changbai Mountain have seen the construction of hotels and parking lots, and have experienced the destruction of large swaths of woods and forests. This year, in a move to combat this trend, many of China's tourism attractions are increasingly emphasizing the protection of tourism resources. Some areas in China are subject to heavier tourism traffic than usual. One obvious example of this is China's Great Wall which attracts more than 20 million visitors each year. In order to protect this cultural relic, in 2007, the Badaling section of the wall began instituting limits on the number of travelers that can visit each day. Now the best preserved areas lie in China's western and southern regions. These areas include Tibet, Xinjiang, Guizhou and Guangxi Province. The regions pristine conditions are due to the areas late economic development, and many beautiful scenic spots have yet to be developed. Although you may have to take an old bus or van in order to travel to many of these areas, once you arrive and take a look around at the natural beauty and experience the regions traditional lifestyle, I'm positive that you'll find it was worth the trip.

World Environment Day: Africa Sustainable Energy
n Africa, UNDP, as an implementing partner of the Global Environment Facility (GEF), is getting people in remote areas onto the electrical grid by harnessing green sources of energy like hydropower and solar energy. In the Embu district of central Kenya, a high rate of rainfall combined with a large amount of runoff water from the snows of Mount Kenya made hydropower the obvious choice. Through GEFs Small Grants Programme, which is managed by UNDP, the community there has established a hydro-powered turbine. Today it provides power to hundreds of people with the potential to reach thousands more. Namibia, meanwhile, is unable to receive all the energy it needs from its coal and hydropower plants to feed its rapidly growing tourism, fishing and mining industries. A UNDP/GEF initiative there is working with the Ministry of Mining and Energy to provide financing for people so they can install solar energy systems in both private homes and public buildings like schools and health clinics. In both initiatives, the introduction of alternative sources of energy has cut down on the collection and use of biomass fuels, which cause an estimated 1.4 million people around the world to die from respiratory disease every year. The collection of firewood also leads to the destruction of vital forest lands. In Embu, for example, people are collecting and burning firewood less and less. Instead, they are relying on the hydropower turbines output for all of their electricity needs, from simple things like cooking, television and house lights to the powering up of small businesses like a mobile phone charging shop.

Wind Power Careers - Science Nation
Wyoming has long been known as an energy exporter, from oil to natural gas to coal. The state is now booming with two other resources : wind energy and qualified technicians trained to build, install and service the enormous growth in wind turbine technology. With funding from the National Science Foundation, Laramie County Community College in Wyoming is becoming a national leader in training. Many students are older than average college students; many also are re-training from 20th century industries that have disappeared. It is not a career for the faint of heart, or those with acrophobia. Turbines can be perched 250 feet in the air. We'll join some of the students and instructors during training.

Dr. Anton Treuer (03-22-2012) "Historical Trauma"
Keynote speaker Dr. Anton Treuer closes out Inver Hills Community College's Student/Faculty Conference. This year's theme was Flourishing in a World of Disasters. In this talk Dr. Treuer discusses some of the disasters visited upon American Indians, as well as how the effects of those disasters continue to linger even today. What makes this talk so powerful is that it does not simply attempt to lay blame, rather, Dr. Treuer offers possible solutions for growth and the possibility of authentic global flourishing. (NOTE: the camera needed reset every 30 minutes, which is why there are three "two second" breaks. NO content was lost in those, and the battery died right as Dr. Treuer cited Chris Rock and how racist does one have to be to turn down a day off of work just because it celebrates a black person. The talk ended right after that, so nothing of import was lost.) Thank you to all that helped make this happen!

Launch of B.C. Tourism Labour Market Strategy
British Columbia's tourism industry will be a leader in provincial job growth as businesses look to fill 101,000 new job openings by 2020, according to a study of labour demand and supply by go2, the BC tourism industry's human resource association. The Tourism Labour Market Strategy sets out the plan to recruit, retain and train the workers needed to keep pace with the growth projected for the industry. Nearly half of the 101,000 openings will be new jobs created by the tourism industry across the province, adding 44,220 more jobs to the provincial workforce by 2020. The other approximately 57,000 openings are due to replacements (i.e. retirements). "After several years of slow labour growth, the tourism industry is poised to expand," said Arlene Keis, CEO of go2. "Labour shortages are already being felt in places like Northern BC and in the Rockies regions. By 2016, the crunch will be more acute throughout the province." More than 80 per cent of tourism's new job openings are projected to come in Food and Beverage Services (43,410 openings), Recreation and Entertainment (20,530 openings) and the Accommodation sector (18,920 openings). "Our government is committed to providing British Columbians with the skills training opportunities needed to fill the anticipated one million job openings in our province by 2020," said Pat Bell, Minister of Jobs, Tourism and Innovation. "We are working closely with industry partners like go2 to make sure that we are focusing government investments where they will have the most impact -- like training workers for careers in the tourism industry."
