The oil sector - Pollution - United States of America

With the approach of spot oil leaks in the Gulf of Mexico from four U.S. states are Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida, doubled the U.S. administration of its efforts to prevent Carih environmental, and U.S. President to use all the resources available at the time said the border guards that spot leak five times the volume of oil estimated by the .

U.S. citizens:
"This is terrible, I mean the life of the people here will be destroyed and may in the long term, we hope only to change something, and that the leakage does not reach us, or that its effects are not as bad as expected."

"It can break down our business a little, I think the only thing we can do is catch up manning the oil slick and clean, because it is destructive effects।"

The explosion occurred in the offshore drilling rig leased by BP led to the leakage of oil from a well located at a depth of five thousand feet under the sea off the Louisiana and explosion, which took place eleven days before the killing eleven workers।

The company asked the British Ministry of Defense to provide images of military vehicles and working to combat the massive oil spill in the Gulf of मेक्सिको

The U.S. military began the process of mobilizing to contain the oil slick that may occur serious environmental impacts on wildlife and tourism, this company has shown "BBC" the British willingness to compensate those affected by the leakage of the oil slick as the rent this well.

Bad breath why silenced by the (human health, starting from the teeth).

Many complain of people in every country in the world of smells breath Unfortunately most people do not care about what comes out of foul odors from their mouths when approaching another person or speak with him

This topic is very important to you, O man, adjacent to all the time your brother man, either in work or travel or with your spouse or with your friends

Vthag just that everyone you Sinfr
And moves away from you
And make it difficult for most people the advice in such situations

Because the majority Staand stresses cleaner mouth
And good smell
And convey to you from the site of the validity of this section about the health of the mouth

Oral reasons, includingNeglect in hygienePoor oral health and oral diseases such as tooth decay discarded without treatment, abscesses and dental disease Suppurations nose, pharynx, maxillary sinus and sore tonsils and adenoidsConfined to waste food between the teeth and bad positioning devices, bridges, industrial bad bad manufacture; etc. ..General reasons includeRespiratory diseasesDiseases of the digestive system: satiety, liver diseaseMetabolic diseases: diabetesBlood diseases and nephritis

Some of the reasons oral, including:

The role of smoking

The effects of smoking on the mucous membrane notice when smokers severely occurs at the beginning mucositis and increased keratinization and mucous glands in the back of the palate to become huge and can be blocked Oguenitha circle and can be caused ulceration and atrophy of the Acaridae on the tongue, this is not the amount of damage the smoke only but such a case of bad breath felt by each of the approaches of the smoker and lead to alienation from it, except for discoloration of the teeth ..

Sunni industrial devices

Devices should be cleaned thoroughly after every meal should also be removed during sleep to prevent bad breath and placed the device at night in a small container of water on some of the lye water, oxygen, such as oral ...

The results of a sediment Kulhah

The neglect of calculus and not remove lead to non-alert and activate the margins gums by food occurs twice gum Vtnfz the bacteria and become infected will become papillae periodontal red fragile soft bleeding caused the bad smell and taste unpleasant in the mouth so you must remove the calculus at the dentist because it is hard not to remove brush normal and then follow the patient's teeth cleaned daily and after each meal so as not to precipitate a new layer calculus Mona and hardened by the day ...

Address the evaporation

For reasons of public evaporation must know the reason, whether respiratory or digestive or inflammatory tonsils, etc. ...
Address the odor from the mouth causes oral effective and often heals take care of oral hygiene and the dentist can address the pathological tissue and deleted the bad factors that cause collected food waste and directs the patient to the method of cleaning between the teeth. And must resort to the use of oral washes, mouth wash, especially those containing antimicrobial agents to remove the smell of the mouth is disturbing for a period not less than two hours, a temporary reduction of bad breath.

And logic required to remedy the situation by removing all the reasons affecting by the dentist and the anti-evaporation are many, and the impact of a chemical or mechanical in modifying chemical reactions resulting from the decay and fermentation of the foreign materials in between the teeth and under the caries and bad areas of inflammatory gum, and these drugs oxidants and absorbents coal, chlorophyll and acid and chlorine-free materials, and materials proven remember:
Water oxygenThe aqueous solution of 3% topical affect the bacteria, a weak antiseptic, anti-Yun oxygen quickly Vijrb residues and teeth whitening is used in the anti-evaporation and in oral infections and gum different.
It is absorbent, chlorophyll is found in green plants such as lettuce and spinach. Intervene in the chlorophyll oxidation Feinst living cells, which helps to speed the healing of wounds and sores, and modify foreign objects that are a cause of bad breath enters the chlorophyll in the installation of some Sunni pastes has proven to be able to remove these pastes evaporation within two hours of brushing teeth.

Finally, it must be said some of the foods that send a bad smell in the breath of eat, such as onions problem has been solved in part by eating lettuce leaves that go a little smell because they contain chlorophyll. Due to the reluctance of some to like eating onion said the important nutritional value and its ability to kill germs huge settlement in the mouth and intestines has been shown that it contains iron, phosphorus and vitamin A in large quantities. The garlic is Kalpsal in terms of the ability to kill bacteria because it contains allicin, a substance rich in phosphorus and calcium, which makes his feature activated

Pollution incident in a position to deal with nuclear waste in Belgium

VIENNA (Reuters)


  The agency said the International Atomic Energy Agency on Wednesday that the UN inspectors and two others are being screened due to exposure to radiation after the "pollution incident" in the facility to handle nuclear waste.

The agency as saying that the Belgian authorities say he did not leak radiation into the environment after the accident, which occurred Tuesday afternoon at a facility in the area of ​​Diesel Balijobrosis North.


She said in a statement: "The inspector, accompanied by an inspector from the institution and the employee of the Euratom Balijobrosis conducting a routine inspection at the facility when the accident occurred."


The agency, based in Vienna as saying that the three have passed the "de-pollution measures the outside" and underwent medical examinations and are now determining the level of exposure to radiation.


"The Belgian authorities reported that the accident area was cordoned off there was no radiation leak to the environment." He is expected to begin soon in the decontamination facility.


The public fears for the safety of nuclear power has increased around the world after the incident of the power plant in Fukushima, Japan in March, the worst nuclear disaster in 25 years.

Is climate change responsible for the wars and political instability???

Scientists from the University of Hong Kong, the famines, wars and political instability are the results of climate change.
According to German news agency DPA that the scientists had reached the world under the supervision of David Chang to this conclusion after studying the causes of social crises in the era before the Industrial Revolution in the Northern Hemisphere.
Scientists believe the results of their study, published today in the journal Proceedings of the American Academy of Sciences that the drop in temperature of the climate leads to a decline of agricultural crops and high food prices leads later to famines, wars and other crises.
The researchers studied the evolution of climate in the period between 1500 and 1800 and linked the climate of this period, changes in social, economic, demographic and agricultural economy Among the phenomena that have focused in this period, the size of the crop and the outbreak of epidemics, wars and social unrest, as spotted by the presence of two phases warmer climate, one in the period from 1500 to the year 1559 and the other in the period in 1661 until the year 1800 and then phase in the cooler period in 1560 until 1660.

The study shows that, in principle, possible to link all the differences observed by their studies and fluctuations in climate in this period where the fluctuation of climate initially to a change in agricultural productivity and what it means from the change of per capita food and then there social changes after a period ranging from 5 to 30 years.

The researchers found that the crisis occurred due to the decline in the time of Ithmaar cold periods which led to a decline in crop continues to increase the number of population at the same time and with the increasing demand for food commodities and falling supply.

Furthermore, scientists reported that the cold period in Europe the end of the sixteenth century led to the decline in average length of the people there by 2 cm and no longer the first people to their height only after the rise in temperature after the air in 1650 after the increase in per capita food.

The study confirmed that the number of wars increased in the colder period by 41 percent as well as the number of injuries and epidemics of plague in the same period.

And expanded the researchers period covered by the study and linked data between the temperature in the past thousand years, and between times of prosperity and years lean in Europe, make sure you have a relationship between climate and the social and political crises, where the climate was cold in the period in 1212 even in 1381, for example, is known as a period crises in the late medieval period when temperatures were above average in the late Renaissance of the fourteenth century to the beginning of the sixteenth century or during the Age of Enlightenment in the late seventeenth century and the eighteenth century.

Risks of air pollution on human health

Dr Majd

Statistics show a recent interview, "the World Health Organization," a few days ago that two million people die each year from air pollution as a result of inhaling polluted air, gases and Palmalqat or small particles in indoor and outdoor air resulting from air pollution in many of the pollutants and gases invasive and harmful.

It is worth mentioning that the sum of these particles, called "PM10" is a particle with a diameter of 10 micrometers or less, which can access to the lungs and enter the bloodstream, and is able to cause heart disease and lung cancer, asthma and infections of acute respiratory bottom. And have, in some countries, measurements of particles smaller, such as PM2.5, has identified the principles of the World Health Organization air quality guidelines for the annual average which should not be exceeded with respect to those particles which is 20 micrograms per cubic meter, but the data published today shows that the average, in some cities 300 mg / m 3.
Definition of air pollutant harmful to human health:

Is the air that has a solid, liquid or gaseous extraneous quantities lead to the damage directly or indirectly to human health.

Sources of air pollution

Sources of air pollution are divided into two main sources:

Natural sources:
The sources from which no income for a person by a (gas rising from the soil and volcanoes, forest fires and dust storms and wind), and these sources are usually limited and not serious harm.

Abnormal sources:
Which is caused by or caused to occur in the human is more dangerous than the former concern and interest where the components are many and varied and caused an imbalance in the composition of natural air, as well as in the ecological balance.

And has released "World Health Organization" since the days of an unprecedented array of air quality data which show that air pollution was, in many cities, dangerous levels threaten people's health. And that data derived from about 1,100 cities in 91 countries, including the capitals and cities are home to more than 100,000 inhabitants.

The following is a brief mention of the key findings in the new data set:

• the continuing rise in the levels of pollution and harmful gases, fine particles are common in many urban areas. Which arises from the burning of fuel sources, such as power plants and motor vehicles or an old diesel-powered "diesel."

• above-average annual exposure to the vast majority of the population of urban areas for PM10 particles the maximum level recommended in the principles of the World Health Organization guidelines for air quality and the 20 micrograms / m 3. Unfortunately, there is now general, only a few cities that satisfy the values ??contained in the guidelines mentioned.

• It is estimated that the number of premature deaths that could be caused by outdoor air pollution was, in 2008, including more than 1.34 million deaths. Been met, even if the principles of the WHO guidelines at the global level it is possible to prevent around 1.09 million deaths in that year.

The number of de
aths that can be caused by air pollution in cities compared with the estimated increase recorded in 2004 and of 1.15 million deaths. And there is a link between the increase in deaths attributable to air pollution in urban areas between urban and recently recorded increases in the concentrations of air pollution in the urban population.
She said, "Dr. Maria Neira," Director of Public Health and Environment World Health Organization:

 "The air pollution from environmental health issues key and we must make more efforts to reduce the health burden caused. If we monitor and manage the environment properly, we can reduce the number of people suffering from respiratory diseases, heart disease and lung cancer.

It is noticeable, all over the world, that urban air is often thick and has a vapor or smoke saturated with toxins and emitted by the transport mechanisms of old or those running on diesel also contains soot, "air-saturated coal-black" and resulting from heavy machinery, factories, power plants near cities.

In many countries there are no laws governing air quality and there, in the countries where those laws, a significant difference between the national standards and enforcement mechanisms. "

Raise awareness about health risks from air pollution

I have called "the World Health Organization" to raise awareness about health risks of air pollution in metropolitan areas and to tight surveillance by governments and the populations of those cities and not to acquiesce to any activity that damage the air that Istnhqoh, and to implement effective policies and to monitor the situation more closely .

 It is expected to contribute to reducing the annual average of PM10 particles of 70 micrograms / m 3 to 20 micrograms / m 3 in reducing the mortality rate by 15%, which is a great asset in the field of public health. But in places with higher levels of pollution will reduce the annual average of less effective in reducing mortality, but it will also be significant health benefits.

He said, "Dr. Carlos Dora" coordinated interventions for the environments health in the Department of Public Health and Environment at WHO, "The solutions to resolve the problems of outdoor air pollution in cities will be different according to the relative contribution of the sources of pollution, and stage of development, topography communities. Must be for cities to use information contained in the database of the World Health Organization to monitor trends in air pollution so you can identify effective interventions and improved and strengthened. "

Factors that contribute significantly to air pollution:

One of the main factors that contribute to outdoor air pollution in cities, in developed and developing countries alike:

• The motorized means of transport or the old diesel-powered "diesel"

• large and small factories nearby cities and private cement plants.

• burning of waste of all kinds.

• power plants.

• quarries and stone crushers near cities.

• agricultural activity and that the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers origin.

• Population Activity, which houses the remnants of gaseous substances and solid and liquid.

I have said since the days of "Dr. Michael Krizanowski" head of the WHO Centre for the European Environment and Health, located in the city of Bonn, Germany, including the following:
 "The actions of local and national policies and international agreements are all necessary means to reverse the pollution and reducing the prevalence of health effects on a large scale. And issued from the data from air quality monitoring, we can identify the areas most needed to the procedures in this area and we can also assess the effectiveness of policies and procedures that have been implemented. "

Disposal methods and the prevention of air pollution:

1 - requiring all factories in the (private and public sector) to set up units for filtering and processing Makhlavadtha Oasalbh dust or gas or liquid.

2 - use of unleaded gasoline and fuel oil sulfur-free.

3 - control of all means of transportation, public, and ensure the safety of their engines and burning fuel properly.

4 - remove all plants from the cities and places of residence.

5 - wastewater treatment by modern scientific methods.

6 - the use of clean energy alternative to fossil fuels (coal and fuel oil ..).

7 - use of pesticides and fertilizers with organic source, and not chemical.

8 - control of factories and production activities with older technologies, contaminated and Taattoerha.

9 - Increase wooded areas within cities, which must be not less than 40% of the area of ??the city, in addition to the cultivation of green belts surround it.

10 - not to give any license to a new industrial Aatakid terms of preserving the integrity of human health and the environment.

In conclusion we can say that any air pollution caused by car or any vehicle or any industrial activity, agriculture is of a truth source for the dissemination of poison and death, which would harm no others, but also will damage the Palmspb them and generations, and the environment and all life forms.

Five most dangerous foods on human health!!!

French fries:

Contain potatoes fried at a high level of calories and fat, which contains 1 gram of fried potatoes, more than 3 calories and more than 51 grams of fat addition, the exposing potatoes to high temperatures in frying leads to the formation of compounds "Aalakouglamed" and which is compounds carcinogenic to animals and most likely for humans as well and when you add salt to the fried potatoes, it also become harmful for those suffering from high blood pressure, and believed that the slice of sweet potato may be more damage from a single cigarette.

Soft drinks:

The soft drink is a healthy and nutritional value low for many reasons in addition to that it contains high amounts of caffeine they contain a large amount of sugar to one pack of soft drinks, "diet free of Alsek and calories but they contain sweeteners artificial unhealthy, especially if consumed high quantities on the other hand contain soft drinks large amounts of phosphorus, which adversely affects the calcium balance in the body and this increases the probability of infecting a person with osteoporosis has been linked to many studies consumption of soft drinks raise risk of broken bones as well as diabetes type II.

. Foods that contain artificial dyes:

With the natural colors in vegetables and fruits is a vehicle with anti-cancer properties, but the artificial colorings in the juice stained Sucker clothing, ice cream color is in most cases, chemical compounds have damage to serious health ranging from causing tumors and difficulty in concentration sensitivities of the various defects in the thyroid gland.

4. Such as internal organs (liver, spleen, kidney, tongue, Alkrchat)

The internal organs of all animals contain very high amounts of Alkolstorl which contributes to hardening of the arteries narrow, and are advised to consume the internal organs in the intervals not exceeding four times a year by persons who either suffer from high cholesterol level advised to be dropped to avoid Aldakhilh member.

5 solid fat at room temperature, such as plant and animal obesity, butter and margarine:

That these types of solid fats raises the level of LDL cholesterol and this is contributing to the hardening and narrowing of the arteries, it is advisable to refrain from the consumption of fat and avoid foods that contain like most kinds of sweets Eastern and Western the other hand are advised to replace the fat, solid fat, liquid, such as other vegetable oils, especially oil olive, which is the best.

With regard to Balmadan and obesity plant although it is free of cholesterol because it is vegetarian but not less harm to the butter and obesity, the municipality, because the installation of fat causes hardening of the arteries in addition to that created many of the studies the relationship between the consumption of solid fats and the prospects for a higher risk of developing diabetes type II.

Drug-resistant TB spreads at risk in Europe

Britain introduced a program to do X-ray examinations of domestic



World Health Organization warned of the spread of drug-resistant tuberculosis at an alarming rate throughout Europe.

Showed the FAO estimates that there are about 81 thousand TB in Europe each year do not respond to treatment with antibiotics.

The organization says that the disease develops which is more acute in Eastern Europe, especially in Russia, Ukraine and Azerbaijan.

The British capital of London most affected countries in western Europe, where the record where three thousand and five hundred new cases per year.

Experts attribute the increasing incidence of resistance to non-completion of patient-dose therapy in the belief Bashvaúhm of the disease.

And d see. Ibrahim Abu-Bakr, an expert in TB control efforts, FAO said although these numbers are few, but reflect a noticeable increase in the last ten years.

He also emphasized that no organization can feel satisfied with the efforts to combat the disease.
The Abu Bakr that the cost of treatment per case could escalate to reach hundreds of thousands of pounds.
He also pointed to the importance of focusing on efforts to prevent transmission of the disease.
He urged the doctors and staff in emergency departments more cautious in dealing with cases that are suspected of being infected with TB.

Referred to the TB infection is transmitted through the air and causes of death in about 7 percent of the cases, while the mortality rate among patients who made up in their bodies resistant to treatment rises to 50 percent.

The organization commended the efforts of Britain, which now offers new services to fight TB, including use of mobile units for the X-ray examination to visit patients at home.

Some experts believe that control efforts should not focus only on immigrants, or prison inmates, but will expand to include all those who are most vulnerable to injury

Reach for the disarmament of the AIDS virus?

Scientists find way to disarm the AIDS virus

LONDON (Reuters)

Scientists have found a way to prevent AIDS virus from destroying the immune system and say the discovery may provide a new approach to develop a vaccine for the prevention of the deadly disease.

The scientists concluded from the United States and Europe working in the laboratory of HIV that the virus becomes capable of destroying the immune system in the case of the removal of cholesterol from Gchaúh.

Adriano said Boisson from Imperial College London, who led the study, "It's like the army has weapons but still has the flags of the army can identify him and another attack."

The team plans now to discuss how to use this method to eliminate the virus and may develop a vaccine.

Usually when a person becomes infected (virus. No. In) that causes AIDS, the immune response, innate defense of the body immediately. But some researchers believe that the AIDS virus makes the innate immune system over-reaction. This weakens the next line of defense for the immune system known as adaptive immune response.

During the study, published in the journal (blood) "Blood" on Monday, a team Boisson to remove cholesterol from the membrane surrounding the virus only to find that this is to prevent the virus from the operation of the innate immune system. This in turn led to stronger adaptive response regulated by the type of immune cells known as T cells.

AIDS kills about 1.8 million people annually around the world. And injured as many as 2.6 million people with HIV in 2009 and 33.3 million live with HIV infected person.

Try and scientists from companies and nonprofit organizations and governments around the world for many years to produce a vaccine against HIV, but so far not been achieved only limited success.

A study in Thailand in 2009 included 16 000 volunteers for the first time that a vaccine can prevent HIV infection in a small number of people, but because the efficiency was about 30 percent, the researchers had to return to the beginning of the road.

The discovery of water in the desert of the Gulf?

Aeronautics and Space Administration "NASA" explore the desert of the Gulf waters


Announced the world in the U.S. space agency, "NASA" The success of the first experiment in the desert of the Gulf to study the evolution of groundwater in the Middle East. The world said Essam Heggy in a statement on Sunday that a research team from the "NASA" use advanced technology to monitor the depth of ground water in the desert of Kuwait, the same technique used to explore the water beneath the surface of Mars.

The pilgrimage to the research team under his leadership that the use of airborne radar technology to map the groundwater in the area.

Expected to contribute to scientific research in the accurate mapping of groundwater in the depths of the desert better, as well as understanding of the development of water resources in that region, and assess the impact of climate change on them.

Haji said that the experiment took place in the desert of northern Kuwait with the participation of researchers from the Kuwait Institute for Research, led by Amr Fadl al-Mawla, and the team was able to locate underground water in large basins dry, which suggests that the desert has been active in shallow water near the geological past.

And use the research team for two weeks a helicopter to carry a radar-imaging flights low (300 meters) above the two zones of groundwater known in Kuwait, was shot water depth ranging from 20 to 65 meters, and succeeded the researchers show that the radar can determine the locations of ground water and determine depth and places with water flowing.

The pilgrimage that this effort will help to understand the development of ground water in the ground and distributions of quantities accurately, which are still not yet clear enough.

"If we were able to map the water, we can determine the climatic conditions that existed thousands of years ago when most of the desert land saturated with water."

And carries radar scanning system used in the experiment similar attributes to their campaign two spacecraft, which headed to Mars, the radar his first European spacecraft Mars Express, the second vehicle Vhmmelth sent by NASA.

The director of projects testing the air to "NASA" Craig Dobson The results of this study pave the way to draw a map of groundwater by air, in areas of severe desertification, such as desert of the Arabian Peninsula, and can in future be applied to design devices to map the groundwater in all the desert areas in the the world.

Bacteria "Listeria" Bachammam cause poisoning in seven people in America


U.S. authorities announced a few days ago for the registration of a number of cases of poisoning bacteria, "Listeria", which is known Boaradha disturbing, such as high fever, muscle aches, stiff neck, and the abortion of pregnant women and others.

According to the network, "CNN's" American he was barely Americans pick their breath from the panic that accompanied the spread of food poisoning, from eating food contaminated with the bacterium "E. coli" or "Salmonella", so the authorities announced the emergence of new infections result from eating food contaminated with the bacterium "Listeria".

The officials in the state of Colorado that the health authorities in the state and found a relationship between the nine cases of this type of bacteria, was recently announced, including the deaths of at least one, and intake of fruit melons, but not confirmed officially from a specific source has led to the emergence of these cases.

The network pointed out that the injuries were not confined to the state of Colorado alone, but extended to a number of neighboring states, including Texas and Nebraska.

The number of cases of infection with the bacterium "Listeria" that are recorded each year in Colorado, about a dozen cases, but the nine cases that have been discovered recently, all of which appeared during the months of August and September.

The management of Colorado's health and the environment that these cases have emerged in the provinces of Adams, Arapahoe and Boulder, Denver, Douglas and Jefferson, and Arimir, "and Oeld, in addition to El Paso County, noting that the age of patients ranged between 30 and 90 years, the majority of women.

All patients underwent in Colorado for treatment within the state's hospitals, and although the local authorities announced the death of two of them, but they confirmed that only one case is the result of infection with the bacterium "Listeria".

Said Dr. Chris Urbina, Chief Medical Officer and Executive Director of the Department of Public Health and Environment Colorado "Although the investigation into the source of the spread of Listeria infection continues, it is best to avoid eating cantaloupe."

It is noteworthy that the symptoms of infection with Listeria, the high temperature of the patient, feeling a sharp pain in the muscles, and can include diarrhea, headache, stiff neck, sometimes causing injury and loss of concentration and nerve spasms.

The symptoms may be caused by serious disease, "Allisteriocis" as a result of infection with these bacteria, the pregnant women, either premature delivery or abortion, or the death of the fetus inside the uterus.

Deployment of renewable energy solutions

Since it had succeeded, the United Arab Emirates to host the "International Agency for Renewable Energy" (Irina) in 2009, and spares no effort in providing the necessary resources all before it, to turn in the dissemination of renewable energy solutions, as the energy of the future, which are indispensable for the countries of the world whole, especially the developing countries that face increasing challenges in the energy influence in her development.

In this context, the meeting of the "Irina" recently, and was devoted to discuss the development strategies of the African continent, and to pave their economies to address the constraints that hinder the deployment of renewable energy solutions. The continent of Africa a high priority in the Plan of Action, "Irina," not because they are losing billions of dollars annually due to lack of renewable energy projects, but because it has a lot of capacity large that allows it to meet its energy needs by relying on its abundant resources of renewable energy sources as well, as has solar energy that can ensure the supply of electricity without the need for costly investments to develop infrastructure and distribution networks, which are also available geothermal energy resources to ensure a good supply of electricity.

The attention paid "Irina" for the deployment of renewable energy solutions in the countries of the African continent, and help them develop their strategy in this regard, in line with the overall thrust of the UAE and its leadership to help developing countries acquire the capacity to enter the era of renewable and clean energy, through the "Fund Abu Dhabi Development ", which allocates $ 350 million to help accelerate the deployment of clean energy solutions and technologies in these countries.

The leadership role played by the UAE in the deployment of renewable energy solutions in the countries of the world,

originally based on elements of several major, first, that the UAE adopts a comprehensive and integrated approach for the construction sector, renewable energy and clean knowledge-based, through several initiatives initiative "Masdar City "which will be the first city in the world free of carbon emissions and waste, and establishing the largest wind power plant in the Middle East on the island of" Sir Bani Yas, "and interested in solar energy. At the same time, investment in renewable energy and clean to be high among the areas of investment in the national economy. Second, the considerable support of the UAE's "International Agency for Renewable Energy" (Irina), and provide capabilities and capacities of human and material and technical resources required for success, and to support its strategy, objectives and future plans to become an international center in the field of renewable energy and associated research.

This is no doubt that it would give the Organization the effectiveness of the concrete in the development of renewable energy in an advanced position on the map sources of energy in the world. Third, the capacity of the UAE regulatory big in hosting major events on the discussion of the issues of renewable energy, and uses widely, and most prominent of these events, "World Summit on the energy future," hosted by the UAE since its inception in 2008, and discussed through many of the pressing issues in the field of energy such as climate change, and the use of alternative energy sources, and others, and this is undoubtedly of great importance is to provide an opportunity for communication between individuals and institutions working in the field of renewable energy, and promote international partnerships in this vital area. 

For all this, the UAE has become a regional hub and an important international in the field of renewable energy.
