Every April 22nd since 1970 has been celebrated as Earth Day, an international movement which calls attention to the pressing issues facing our environment. From pollution to fossil fuels to global warming, Earth Day mobilizes millions of people in nearly every country and moves them to action. Many communities organize awareness fairs, community clean-ups, education seminars and other events aiming to bring attention to our need for a cleaner, more sustainable world.
Caring for the environment is at the heart of our mission at the Menorah Islands. We plan to incorporate the most advanced technologies which aim to save the earth’s natural resources, preserve its beauty and improve stability throughout the world. With Earth Day just around the corner, we want to highlight the different earth-friendly technologies which are at the heart of our plans for the Menorah Islands.
Atmospheric water generators
As water conservation becomes a pressing issue around the globe, and especially in the water-starved Middle East, the Menorah Islands seeks to boost the water supply on the local level. Atmospheric water generators (AWGs) address the issue by literally creating water from the air. These solar-powered machines create potable water by drawing humidity out of the environment surrounding the machines. Depending on the size of the machine, tens of thousands of liters can be produced each day for drinking, cooking, washing dishes and more.
Solar power and other renewable energy sources
Renewable energy avoids tapping into the world’s rapidly-depleting natural resources such as oil, coal and other fossil fuels. Globally, 18 percent of the world’s power is expected to come from renewable energy by 2050; it’s the fastest-growing source of power on the planet. On the Menorah Islands, we hope to draw 100 percent of energy from renewable sources such as solar. Our plans for the islands include installation of solar panels throughout to help us meet that goal.
Continued scientific study
The best in earth-friendly technologies is yet to come. That’s why the Menorah Islands will have dedicated space to devote to continued study, research and development of the next innovations slotted to save the earth.
Each of the seven towers at the center of the Menorah Islands will be dedicated to an area of study, and one of those areas is continued scientific research. We will invite scientists from around the world to collaborate, share research and advance ideas. With the world’s most brilliant minds working on what’s to come, research performed here could quite literally save the planet.
Not only will continued scientific study unlock the future of earth-saving technologies, but such collaboration holds true to another one of our missions: peace in the Middle East. At the Menorah Islands, politics will not keep researchers from working together. It will be a safe space to unite and work together, without the complications of international relations which keep people apart.
Every day is Earth Day on the Menorah Islands
April 22nd’s global celebration of Earth Day is of vital importance to raise awareness and take action. That’s why the Menorah Islands celebrates Earth Day 365 days a year.
Considering our impact on the environment, and how we can help to preserve its resources, is at the core of what we do. Incorporating solar panels and other renewable energy sources into our power plans, generating our own water through solar-powered atmospheric water generators, and continuing to push earth-friendly technologies forward will help those on the Menorah Islands live their earth-friendly goals every single day. Now that’s earth-friendly!
