Air pollution

View this topic in
Air pollution is the introduction of chemicals, particulate matter, or biological materials that cause harm or discomfort to humans or other living organisms, or cause damage to the natural environment or built environment, into the atmosphere. The atmosphere is a complex dynamic natural gaseous system that is essential to support life on planet Earth. (

  • Fundamental Green Networking Technologies

    This chapter provides a timely overview of the research challenges and existing solutions for green energy enabled mobile networks and lays the foundations for powering mobile networks with green energy. First, it introduces green power generation and prediction models and mobile network energy consumption models. Understanding the characteristics of green power generation and the dynamics of energy consumption of mobile networks are essential for designing and optimizing green energy enabled mobile networks. In order to maximize green power utilization, green energy powered BSs should be properly designed and optimized to cope with the dynamics of green power and mobile data traffic. The process of green energy provisioning involves three basic models: the load model, the battery model, and the green power generation model. The chapter also discusses network optimization for off‐grid green mobile networks, on‐grid green mobile networks, and mobile networks consisting of both green BSs and grid powered BSs.

  • Foreword by Junkuo Zhang

    Climate change is a colossal challenge for humankind; it affects the well- being of the world's people and the future prospects of all nations. Recent more frequent climate extremes, including heat waves, droughts, and floods, have shown that climate change characterized by global warming has a significant impact on natural ecosystems throughout the world and seriously threatens the survival and development of the human condition. It is clearly now a very pressing task for each country to determine how to mitigate climate change and improve its ability to effectively adapt to climate change.

  • Green Mobile Clouds: Making Mobile Devices More Energy Efficient

    Green communications has gained a lot of interest lately and the question here is how mobile clouds can help to improve the energy efficiency of mobile devices. In this chapter the energy‐savingixpotential of mobile clouds is demonstrated. A particular scenario is chosen for this purpose, namely a cooperative download case where users retrieve a desired content in a collaborative manner. The effect on download speed is also investigated. Several cooperative strategies for the mobile cloud are studied and their energy–saving performance is compared.

  • Introduction

    This chapter provides an introduction on the green communications and energy efficiency in telecommunication systems considering the origins of the problem and indicating the main motivations. It additionally provides an overview of energy efficiency in telecommunication systems highlighting past and present innovations and demonstrating the evolution of the green communications field. An overview of the system model is followed by an examination of the different parts of a telecommunication network where energy conservation mechanisms and practices can be applied, as further detailed throughout the book. The fundamental energy efficiency concepts and principles in telecommunication systems are then analyzed, reviewing also the elementary energy quantification and qualification measures.

  • 1 Introduction

    On November 11, 2014, President Xi Jinping and President Barack Obama walked into a press conference in the Great Hall of the People adjacent to Tiananmen Square in Beijing and stunned the world with their Joint Announcement on Climate Change. For the first time ever, China announced that it would limit its emissions of heat-trapping carbon dioxide (CO2) in absolute terms so that its emissions would peak around 2030, with "best efforts" to peak early. Relatedly, China also pledged to increase the share of nonfossil fuels in its primary energy consumption to around 20 percent by 2030. For its part, the United States committed to achieve an economy-wide target of reducing its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to 26–28 percent below its 2005 level by 2025 and to make "best efforts" to reduce its emissions by 28 percent (White House 2014).
