The sun is the solution to climate problem

Solar panels
If all of the world used the sun as an energy source, it would solve many climate problems!
Solar panels absorb the sunlight as a source of energy to generate electricity or heat. Wiki

The history of the solar cell info:
The first solar cell was constructed in the 1950s. The first solar cells were used to generate electricity in places where it was not. Mountain streams, lonely islands or other unavailable places. During the 1960s, solar technology developed in space technology to gain access to electricity in space. Over the next decades, technology has evolved further and more and more facilities have been connected to the grid. Better efficiency of solar cells and falling prices have made solar electricity more competitive with fossil fuels and nuclear power.

During the 21st century, the installation rate of solar cells has been almost explosive and solar energy is the fastest growing energy source in the world

90 percent of the world's photovoltaic plants consist of silicon cells. There are also second generation solar cells with thin film cells. They came onto the market in the early 2000s, but are more expensive to manufacture. Third-generation solar cells based on nanotechnology are still at the research stage, but will soon be on the market

Radioactive pollution

It seem the destruction to our nature and planet earth get worse and worse. First was Air pollution that i posted about in previous blog post here and now it's Radioactive pollution.
Recently Nuclear accident sends radioactive cloud over Europe is posted by The Guardian link. Also Radioactive material from the Fukushima nuclear accident is still leaking into the ocean after the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, Anonymous Video.

If you care about other people and the planet earth and don't want get sick or get death by pollution, then all people need to take their responsibility!

Some simple thing that can help reduce pollution:
- Governments need to take their responsibility and replace to clean energy
-  The sun is the solution to climate problem Use Solar Panels!
- People need to avoid diesel engine cars & trucks they have higher air pollution
- When you buy a car go for the electric vs motor it is better for environment
- Take the Train or Bus when you travel short distance and why not use a bicycle
- In some large city's transports and gods can be done with Trains 
- Plant many trees and forest, because tress clean the air in city's and removes pollution!

Remember everything we do have consequence!

Injustice 2 beta

Injustice 2
I have tested the Injustice 2 beta game at steam and it did run ok just some lags by some player with mic when they join.The beta had only multiplayer versus mode and did not contain any single player. The graphic and animation was great and the only thing i did not like is  lack of a block button. To block you must move back, they should add option and button for blocking. Also there is a auto benchmark that test your FPS and auto setts your graphic setting in option. The beta ends at 10 Nov. More info Official Website

Xbox One X VS S
The new Xbox One X has been released and it's more powerful than previous Xbox One consoles now it can almost handle 4K. It's just that the new Xbox One X it uses more electricity 175W according to DigitalFoundry test also than the S model that uses less power around 58W. According to Gamespot test Xbox One X generate more heat around 61.7 degrees C when in game. It's because the new X uses more transistors = more heat. Also do not forget when you buy a console make sure you buy one with large hard-drive because many new games are around 50GB and you will run out of space.
