Social Acceptance of Renewable Energy: Past, Present and Future.

1. Introduction The paper published by Rolf Wustenhagen, Maarten Wolsink and Mary Jean Burer in 2007 formalized what is still nowadays generally called the field of research on the social acceptance of renewable energy innovation or renewable energy technologies (RET). Twelve years later, we can say that this paper and associated proposal has been aContinue reading “Social Acceptance of Renewable Energy: Past, Present and Future.”

Declines in global ecological security under climate change.

Ecological security is the state when an ecosystem maintains its stability under external stress. Due to climate change and the increase in human activities since the 20th century, the rapid decline in global ecological security has threatened sustainable human development. The evaluation and projection of global ecological security is important for forming adaptation strategies toContinue reading “Declines in global ecological security under climate change.”

Effects of climate change on future groundwater availability in key mid-latitude water level

Groundwater provides critical freshwater supply, particularly in dry regions where surfacewater availability is limited. Climate change impacts on GWS (groundwater storage) couldaffect the sustainability of freshwater resources. Here, we used a fully-coupled climate modelto investigate GWS changes over seven critical aquifers identified as significantly distressedby satellite observations. We assessed the potential climate-driven impacts on GWSContinue reading “Effects of climate change on future groundwater availability in key mid-latitude water level”

Undergraduate Computer Science Courses Cyber Security Index in the UK.

we have two technological features threatening the global economy for the first time in a decade: i) cyber attacks and ii) data fraud. These two are within the top five most likely global risks such as natural disasters, extreme climate events and the failure to mitigate climate change. Technological threats are now recognized as anContinue reading “Undergraduate Computer Science Courses Cyber Security Index in the UK.”
