This link is an article from the Standford University in the USA.

The Article talks about how the technology is affecting the use of electricty and consequently, how this brings bigger amount of CO2 to the envioronment. Technology in Australia uses 7%  of the countrys electricty, leading to 2.7% of carbon emission to the atmosphere

Enviornment E-Waste

http://www.usell.com/

This page is a multinational company that is in the UK and in the United States. It supported by very known brands like The New York times, Forbes, FOX, Discovery channel etc. They all give a positive comment and argument in why uSell is the best company to give out your unused technology.

Usell buys used technology (phones, Tablets, game consoles and Video games) from common people. Later on, they sell them to professional people or cmpany from which the phone is that will recycle them. This is better for the environment because less phones will be thrown to the trash. They’ve saved 386473 devices.

Environment mapping, virtual globe.

This organaization is buck up by the NICTA, the largest australias information and communication technology centre of excellence. This has growing number of iniciatives involving web based 3D geospatial visualization. It helps Cesium to build a solid, highly functional, open source, WebGL based geospatial visualization platform.

Cesium is a javascript libraary for creating 3D globes and 2D maps in a web browser without a plugin. It uses WebGL for hardware accelerated graphics, and is cross plataform, cross browser, and tuned for dynamic data visualization.

Enviornment Satellite navigations

http://www.ips.gov.au/About_IPS

IPS is a page from the australian goverment. It has its central offices in Sydney. It was set up by the federal goverment in 1947 within the department of interior.

IPS manages and extensive network of observations hosting magnetometers, ionosondes and other sensors around the Australia, New zealand region and Antartica. Observations are combined with data from satellites and other countries observations to monitor space weather and provide services and advice on space weather conditions for radio communications, sattelite navigation and other operations.

Enviornment Data Logging‏

The enterprices HOBO data logger and weather station products are used around the world in a broad range of applications, including building energy performance monitoring, water resources management, and ecological and agricultural research. Based out of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, Onset has sold more than 2 million data loggers since the company’s founding in 1981.

The HOBO enterprices makes products that track temperature, humidity. How? it uses sensors and a software to get accurate and reliable data.

Enviormental modelling and sustitution‏

http://www.goldsim.com/Web/Solutions/EnvironmentalSystems/

This author is reliable because this software is used by goverment agencies such as NASA,  US departement of energy and the  california departement of water resources. Research laborarories such as Los Alamos national laboratory and MIT. Commercial institutions suxh as amazon.com and Mitsubishi.

What this simulator does is that it represents the uncertainty inherent in enviornmenta systems in order to carry out enviormental risk assesment, formulte environmental management plans, evaluate potential environmental impacts, and make better environmental planning and resource management decisions.
It works by combining the flexibility of a general-purpose and highly-graphical probabilistic simulation framework with specialized modules to support mass transport modeling.
