Summary
Formula Green/Petrol And Oil Usage- Hemp, potatoes and cashew nut shells are not your average car components but they've all been used to successfully build a biodegradable racing car. Displayed at London's Science Museum it's one of two cars built by students at UK Universities. Both cars are high Performance green machines--capable of reaching speeds of up to 150 miles--or 240 kilometres--per hour, putting a lot of petrol guzzlers to shame. Shangri La- Cranes high in the mountains of Shangri La, in the wetlands of the Napahai Lake, are the breeding grounds of a Tibetan symbol of peace. The black Necked Crane is revered by Tibetans who attempt to protect the endangered species in the face of habitat loss and human activity. Congo Forest- The world's second largest tropical forest after the Amazon is the forest of the Congo basin. About two-thirds of the forest lies within the Democratic Republic of Congo. Despite a moratorium on new logging contracts since 2002, international companies have snared vast areas of forest land from local communities. Taj Mahal- The Taj Mahal--one of the wonders of the world, jewel of Muslim art, and a 17th Century monument to love, tainted by modern times. A yellow hue of pollution is discolouring the once shimmering white marble and fungus gnaws away at the inner chambers. Gold Rush- Guiyu, a town in Southern China's Guangdong Province, has become a modern day gold rush town. Instead of retrieving gold from streams and riverbeds, family-run workshops look through abandoned electronic and electrical waste to extract valuable metals such as copper and gold. Solar Schools- As part of the drive to reduce Britain's carbon emissions, schools across the country are being fitted with solar panels. The Solar for Schools program enables energy conservation while teaching children the merits of protecting the environment
