Where the Jobs are in Renewable Energy
http://goo.gl/X4NYwj
Compared to its competitors in the energy space, the renewable energy industry is young. But it is growing quickly, especially in Asia. This week the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) released a report on global employment in renewables. The report estimates both direct and indirect employment, as of 2013-2014. Large hydropower dams are excluded.

* China has about 43% of the world's renewable energy jobs, way more than any other country

* Globally, solar PV employs more people than any other renewable energy source

* Most renewable energy equipment is manufactured in Asia; the rest of the world installs and operates it

* In the US, ethanol is still the biggest renewable energy industry for jobs

* Fossil fuels employ more Americans than renewable energy, but coal employs fewer than clean electricity

...we have borrowed our planet from our children. Our children should live to see the beauty of our nature.
Such as butterflies, birds, healthy lawns, flowers and forests. And they have a right to healthy and organic food.
We humans  all over the world must, only, use renewable energy, because by the conventional extraction and Fracking our whole of habitats are being poisoned, then we can no food, grow more and the catastrophe takes its course.

Clean Energy Trends
http://goo.gl/06XADC
Yep, women are “greener” than men. That’s led to speculation that women may view environmentalism as important to protecting their families and themselves. It’s also consistent with our own survey results:

* About 37% of women said they buy clean-energy products and services for the chance to reduce their environmental impact. This compares to just 31 percent of men.

* The same percentage of women and men—82%—said they make clean-energy purchases for the chance to save money.

You might think Millennials are the most environmentally-focused generation. Not so fast.

* 41%, GenXers (born 1965-1978) were actually the most likely to say they make clean-energy purchases to reduce their environmental impact. They edged out the 38% of Millennials (born 1979-1983).

GenXers were also more likely than Millennials to say they’ve “changed the way they live” to help fight climate change—17% to 13%.

71% of GenXers would like to install solar panels on their home at some point in the future. This compares to 66% of Millennials.

What Is The Difference Between Living In New York And San Francisco?
Moving is always traumatic, but moving from NYC to San Francisco is like moving from the Earth to the Moon.
Rivalry between denizens of different cities can be bitter, so let us consider the facts. According to CNN’s cost of living calculator, housing and utilities are 45% and 35% more expensive in Manhattan when compared to San Francisco, but healthcare costs 6% less. Another statistic says that life in NYC is 12% more expensive in general, although if you live in Brooklyn instead of Manhattan, it’s about the same.

This Tiny Electric Motor Gives Your Bike a Sneaky Boost
https://goo.gl/7DnPvg
The next time you're gasping for breath pedaling on a hill, and your buddy is gliding up it with a big grin, consider that he may be cheating with a teensy motor that slips into the frame of a bike.

The Vivax Assist is an Austrian-made electric doodad that looks like a humble, 8.6 inch-long metal rod. It hides inside the seat tube near the pedals, connected to a battery pack stashed in a saddlebag or disguised as a water bottle (seriously). When you're sick of, ya know, exercise, flick a button on the handlebar and the motor engages a crank near the gears, giving you a secret and shameful boost.

This map shows the wealthiest person in every state
http://goo.gl/NLXkBY
Every year Wealth-X, an international wealth intelligence firm, releases its list of the wealthiest person in every state.  The list is mostly made up of multi-billionaires, including Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, and Larry Ellison. However, there are nine states with no single billionaire living there, including Utah, New Mexico, Mississippi, South Dakota, Maine, Delaware, Hawaii, Alaska, and Wyoming.

Here's how much money doctors actually make
http://goo.gl/lBT8CO
The average primary care doctor made $195,000; the average specialist made $284,000. But those averages hide quite a bit of variability based on different factors. Most doctors saw their earnings rise since 2013, with the exception of a slight decrease for rheumatologists. Infectious disease doctors earned 22% more than they did last year, and family physicians earned 10% more. Earnings also vary by region. Average physician income ranges from $253,000 in the Northeast to $281,000 in the Northwest. Certain regions of the country may have to pay more to attract doctors, so physician salaries often reflect the level of competition more than the cost of living.

Doctors with some of the lowest earnings were the most likely to say they would choose medicine as a career if they had to do it all over again. About 70% of physicians in internal medicine and family medicine would choose medicine all over again, compared with just 50% of high-earning orthopedists.

1,143 gallons of water were used to make this plate
California's crippling drought has prompted conservation efforts, such as replacing grass lawns and minding how long you leave the tap water running. But what about the food on your plate? Agriculture uses 80% of California's water supply, and producing what you eat can require a surprising amount of water.
