Conscious Citizens - The Climate is Changing

Are drones going to be the climate lifeguard?

Episode Summary

Drone technology, which we all see primarily associated with film making or the military, is also being used in novel ways to combat man made climate change now. And it is very very important shift in our technological capability for combatting climate change. Information is key, and timely received information is gold and that’s one of the primary use case of Drones. But its not limited to that, drones have bigger potentials.

Episode Notes

Our planet is at the brink of an environmental disaster. Global temperatures are rising with stark consequences for many of the things that we take for granted.

Fortunately, a technology has emerged that can gather data for conservational projects, support the work of environmental researchers, play a key role in implementing sustainable solutions, help in the fight against the odds created by climate effects, and can even service renewable energy infrastructure.

And it can do all of those things in a way that’s better, easier, faster, cheaper, and safer than before. In case you haven’t guessed it yet, we’re talking about drones. These flying robots are tackling climate change from multiple angles: improving the efficiency of solar farms and wind farms, protecting endangered species from above, and supporting the work of scientists all over the world.
