What is Climate Change According to NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration), It’s when we release carbon like burning coal or using gas-powered cars causes the greenhouse effect, which causes our atmosphere to have a higher concentration of CO2. Wind Power Impacting Climate Change Like solar and nuclear,


Climate Change and Agriculture By City Tech Blogger Ethan Brown

When it comes to agriculture, such practice  is highly dependent on the climate. Therefore, climate change has a negative effect on agriculture due to its unpredictable changes in climate. The intricate pattern the climate change makes the practices of farming and growing crops yet more uneasy than the


The Next Big Thing: Solid State Battery By City Tech Blogger Brian Gomes

I think we are in the process of doing something revolutionary, that is  mass-producing solid-state batteries. Solid-state batteries are like lithium-ion batteries but better. They promise to provide more energy, less charging time, longer life, and  safer to use. Solid-state batteries are not a new concept, in fact


Sea Level Rise and Climate Change By City Tech Blogger Jan Adamez
