Toyota the carmaker company is again in limelight, this time for its innovative idea to create a smart city at the base of Mount Fuji, Japan.

Techtopia Toyota Japanese Smart City

The project is named “Techtopia Toyota’s Japanese Smart City” and as per reports till now the city will be a sustainable smart city that will serve as a living laboratory and will be home to 2000 Toyota employees with their families, scientists, retailers, and retired couples.

The environmentalist at Norvergence says that everyone has high expectations from this project based on the announcement the company has made emphasizing sustainability and smart use of artificial intelligence.

Norvergence – Drone is Now Used for Tree-Plantation

Yes, you heard it right that the new technology now used by a startup named Biocarbon Engineering is a flying machine that is Drone to plant trees and grasses at abandoned mines in Australia and other parts of different countries.

The team Norvergence came across this technology while studying about plantation when they found an article that said: “Tree-Planting Drone Can Plant 100,000 Trees in One Day.”

Not just this the startup is currently working on a project in Myanmar with help the Worldview International Foundation to replant mangrove saplings in Myanmar. The expectation of this technology is high after going through its results in Myanmar.

Norvergence: Protection of Environment for Sustainable Development

Environmental protection has become a common topic in each country across the globe. The environmental NGOs like Norvergence support the statement that the protection of the environment is needed for sustainable development.

The reasons behind Industrial pollution, degradation of forests, global warming, depletion of the ozone layer and climate change have shown an adverse impact on the environment and human health.

The official authorities constantly take steps and create policies for environmental protection but it’s time for you as an individual to take responsibility to protect the environment by using eco-friendly products.


Norvergence – Iran- United States Relations

The U.S and Iran conflict took a new turn when the House members plan to vote to force the President of the U.S to quickly wind down the military action against Iran until he is given explicit authorization from Congress.

It is also said for now that the President of the U.S has announced that he would back away from any military escalation against Tehran.

This is a great relief but the research team of Norvergence believes that UAE should adopt all the safety measures at this moment as you never know what Iran is planning after the open threat to destroy Dubai and Haifa if any violation action is initiated by the enemies.


Norvergence – Ocean and Climate Change

The oceans and the issues related to climate change are inextricably linked. The researchers at Norvergence say “Oceans play a fundamental role in mitigating climate change by serving as a major heat and carbon sink. Whereas today the condition of the oceans is not stable and we can see a constant rise in the heat level of the oceans.

Not only this experts have also compared the ocean heat rise with the effects of one of the most dangerous bombings “ the Hiroshima atom-bomb” that the atom bomb exploded with an energy of almost about 63,000,000,000,000 Joules and the amount of heat we have put in the world’s oceans in the past 25 years is equal to 3.6 billion Hiroshima atom-bomb explosions.

The above statement is a true indicator of the impact of climate change and global warming on the planet. The environmentalist at Norvergence feels that its time of the big players like the US, China, and Europe to step in and form a law that protects the environment from excessive usage of carbon by putting limits to its use.


2019 Was the 2nd-Hottest Year on Record

Earth’s global surface temperatures in 2019 ranked second-warmest since 1880, according to independent analyses by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Global temperatures in 2019 were 2 degrees Fahrenheit (1.1 degrees Celsius) warmer than the late 19th century, according to scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York. 2019’s temperatures were second only to those of 2016 and continued the planet’s long-term warming trend: the five warmest years on the instrumental record have been the five last years.

The government of India says that they are also concerned about climate change issues but do not agree with the fact that the Indian population has any role to plan in it. Not just the government, even the World Bank has extended hands to help India fight with the climatic change threats to the country.
