Japanese engineers are hoping to build wind turbines that can withstand the world’s worst typhoons, generating power even in the midst of a natural disaster. Mariel Robedizo Engranes was 15 when Typhoon Haiyan hit. She was living in her hometown of Dolores, Eastern Samar, in eastern Philippines. The country regularly experiences typhoons but Typhoon Haiyan, known in the Philippines as Yolanda, was extraordinary.

Washlands Solar Aerator. Image: Environment AgencyAn innovative green solution is being used to help prevent fish deaths during the dry weather in Essex.The Environment Agency is using solar-powered aeration systems to improve water quality and tackle the impact of hot and dry weather on stillwater fisheries at the Haverhill Newt Pond and Washlands Haverhill.As it gets hotter during the summer months, temperatures increase, which lowers dissolved oxygen levels and causes fish to become distressed. Water levels may decrease and algal blooms can also become more of a risk, both of which can impact oxygen levels.The aeration systems help to increase...
