How can the biodiversity of urban green space ecosystems, including urban parks and gardens, be protected and developed?
In the context of ongoing climate change, the ongoing process of global warming, environmental pollution, the health of people living in the city, urban parks and other green spaces have a very important role. Studies show that urban green areas also play an important role in the number of bees and other pollinating insects, in reducing the extinction of these insects that are important for agricultural crop production. Many bees and other pollinating insects die in agricultural fields where too many pesticides and other crop protection chemicals are used. Urban parks, urban gardens and other green areas play an important role in protecting the status of bee populations. Besides, green areas, urban parks significantly reduce the air temperature in summer during hot weather. This makes the air quality better, the temperature lower during hot weather, the air more humid and cleaner. Urban parks and gardens therefore play a key role in terms of shaping the biodiversity level of natural ecosystems of green areas in cities, in conurbations and also in large metropolitan areas. Unfortunately, in some cities, the trend of so-called concreting instead of afforestation still prevails. This has continued to be the case over the last decade or so in the country in which I operate. It is only recently that the local authorities of some cities have started to pay attention to these issues. In order to reduce the scale of the summer drought in cities, they began to reduce the scale and frequency of lawn mowing and in city parks. Flower meadows have finally been created instead of mowing lawns. Bird nesting boxes and insect houses began to be erected in city parks. In some cities, areas of concrete pavements that were too large began to be dismantled and green belts increased, etc. Finally, after many years of appeals to city authorities by ecologists, naturalists, biologists, but also citizens of many other professional specialisations, environmentally and climate-conscious city dwellers, something has started to happen in terms of protecting the biodiversity of natural ecosystems in urban green areas and also increasing green areas in cities and urban metropolises. Rainwater catchment systems are being set up in urban housing estates. Rainwater and/or water from sewage treatment plants is used to water urban lawns, flower meadows, urban parks and other green areas in cities. There is a return of moa to the establishment of home gardens, with residents creating flower gardens but also vegetable and fruit gardens. Nowadays, rising food prices and the developing energy and food crisis can reinforce these positive trends. In addition, more and more environmentally and climate-conscious city dwellers are cycling instead of using combustion cars. There are more and more positive developments. But these are only the beginnings of the above mentioned positive, pro-environmental and pro-climate changes.
In view of the above I address the following questions to the esteemed community of scientists and researchers:
What else can be done in this regard?
What other pro-environmental and/or pro-climate measures can be implemented in cities?
How can the biodiversity of urban green space ecosystems, including urban parks and gardens, be protected and developed?

Having managed biodiversity of Dublin city, I would say a few things:
- biodiversity should be managed across various land uses within a city, not just parks, to ensure that citizens take responsibility for protecting biodiversity, not just the job of the Parks Department.
- parks and green spaces should be planned to maintain and promote connectivity as much as possible for a wide variety of species, but this can also be challenging in terms of controlling invasive species
- different parks can be managed with greater emphasis on native plant species in more sensitive areas (taking into account above issue on spread of non-native species in vital habitats)
- ensuring minimal disturbance of some areas for wildlife, especially mammals.
Finally I suggest that you look at the Dublin City Biodiversity Action Plan and that each city should try to make a plan with all of the stakeholders and the public - and then give it some resources to be implemented! Biodiversity should be invested in just like the rest of the city's infrastructure.

Answer
Apartment buildings have advantages and disadvantages, most walls, ceilings and even floors, are not exposed to the outside but rather to other conditioned spaces, radically reducing heat loss or gain, which is generally the greatest source of energy consumption.
They also offer amazing opportunities for increased sharing of resources, again a massive potential saving. Not every house needs its own pool or garden, or BBQ area, , water filters, pumps, water storage, or even potentially heaters, boilers, etc there are just as many positives to be gained in sustainable apartment design as challenges.
Most environmental problems are best solved at the small village level rather than the individual house level. Each individual house trying to treat its own waste water is complex and expensive, but treating it at a village level, can include nutrient recovery for village level food farming, which is not feasible at a city level. the same can be true for water purification, treatment, heating etc. A cluster of apartments can be a very productive scale for sustainable solutions. Big enough for car pooling or shared vehicles, for food cooperatives and communal gardens that can afford to pay a worker and create sustainable livelihoods, A cluster of apartments could afford its own sustainable power engineer to maintain its own sustainable power plants, including wind, solar and other solutions. It could afford the gardening staff to maintain a shared outdoor edible landscaped garden with living swimming pools to harvested fish and fruits and nuts and herbs. Local small restaurants, bakers, etc can be more energy efficient than each house producing all of its own meals. Much can be done at this scale

To what extent can rooftop gardens and flower meadows in cities increase the biodiversity of natural ecosystems in cities?
Given the ongoing climate change, including global warming, air pollution, limited areas of urban parks and other green spaces, gardens, flower meadows established on the roofs of buildings in cities can significantly increase the areas of urban green space. When urban green areas are significantly expanded, the biodiversity of natural ecosystems in cities can also increase significantly. In addition, additional green areas can have a positive impact on the air quality of cities. Air quality is not only a question of pollution levels, but also humidity levels and summer temperatures. Additional green spaces can play an important role in the rest and recuperation of residents, which can translate into improved health for people living in the city. Additional green areas, including gardens and flower meadows, also mean more foraging areas for insects, including pollinating insects, whose numbers are rapidly declining due to the over-chemicalisation of agriculture. Besides, additional green areas in cities can increase the level of sustainability in terms of sustainable development, green building and environmentally and climatically sustainable urban agglomerations.
In view of the above, I would like to address the following question to the esteemed community of scientists and researchers:

Do green lending banks in the process of screening the creditworthiness of a potential borrower take into account the prospective negative effects of the progressive process of global warming?
Commercial banks, as part of their credit risk management, carry out, as part of their standard credit procedures, an examination of the potential borrower's creditworthiness or the potential borrower's business entity's creditworthiness and the credit risk it will accept when deciding whether to grant a loan. In view of this, and given the growing importance of green loans in commercial banks' loan offers, I address the following questions to the esteemed community of researchers and academics:
Do commercial banks granting green loans take into account potential, prospective, future, negative effects of climate change, including the effects of the progressive process of global warming, which will affect the credited pro-environmental economic undertakings to a certain extent and in a certain character, in their credit risk management process prior to the possible granting of a loan?
How is green credit risk measured, analysed, controlled? On what assumptions are the green credit procedures based? Is the credit risk management process different from the green credit risk management process carried out in commercial banks providing green loans?
If the state provides guarantees and/or subsidies for green loans, does the level of green credit risk decrease significantly since such public financial support makes these loans more accessible?

How will you reduce electricity consumption in a situation where electricity prices would rise by several dozen percent due to the development of the energy crisis?
It is already known that energy prices will rise due to the energy crisis. It is not yet known to what extent energy prices will increase. The question of this increase is determined by a number of factors.
On the one hand, there are objective factors such as changes in the price level of energy commodities on commodity exchanges. On the other hand, it is determined by the long-term national energy policy pursued to date (e.g. types of energy sources, development of renewable energy sources, diversification of energy sources and energy security) and by current social policy (subsidies and grants for citizens with the lowest incomes). A lot of data supports the thesis that the development of renewable energy and the abolition of dirty combustion energy monopolies are key ways of solving the energy crisis.
In view of the above, I address the following question to the esteemed community of researchers and scientists:
How will you reduce your electricity consumption in a situation where electricity prices would increase by several tens of percent due to the development of the energy crisis?
Or would you still have time in the near future, before the next heating season, to install new, renewable sources of electricity at home, etc.?

In the past, energy crises have initiated significant changes in the economy. For example, the commodity crisis (fossil fuel raw materials) of the 1970s resulted in changes in car manufacturing by replacing existing internal combustion engines with more fuel-efficient versions. At that time, the first media reports about climate change, the greenhouse effect, the progressive process of global warming and the crucial role of a civilisation based on classic, brown, combustion, unsustainable economics in this issue were deliberately ignored in the world of politics and business. Today, the level of society-wide pro-environmental awareness among citizens is already much higher. Much more airtime and publishing space is devoted to green economics and sustainability issues in various media. As a result, the current and future climate crises will perhaps become another motivating factor for accelerating the development of renewable and carbon-free energy sources.
What do you think about this?
Are energy crises becoming important drivers for the development of renewable and carbon-free energy sources?

Question

Unfortunately, more and more results of climatologists' research confirm the thesis that human civilization activity is the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions and a progressive global warming process. Because the human development of civilization is the main source of the progressing and probably accelerating global warming process, the man should reform processes of development of the energy sector and other industries so as to significantly reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and various aspects of environmental pollution in the coming years.
Because it is not easy to introduce such taxes due to the strong lobbying of large corporations, it may be a better solution to introduce regulations that require enterprises to switch to renewable energy sources and use biodegradable raw materials instead of, for example, very slowly degradable plastics. The development of this type of solutions could be activated also through the system of specific tax concessions or subsidies for investment expenditures from the state budget fudnsh. In this way, pro-environmental state interventionism would be developed. This type of process has already begun in the European Union. For example, at the end of 2018, regulations were introduced banning the use of plastic in the packaging of various products within the European Union and as cutlery in restaurants from 2022. However, this is just the beginning of the process, which should be developed on a much larger scale within the framework of pro-environmental state intervention.
Do you agree with my opinion on this matter?

Answer
Dear Shuraik,
Thanks for the answer. That's right. In recent years, due to the accelerating changes in climate, the process of global warming is growing in importance of pro-environmental state intervention. How the pro-environmental state interventionism should be properly implemented has already been researched and demonstrated. I am doing research on this and the results of this research have been described in the published articles that I have posted on my profile of this Research Gate portal. However, the results of these studies are still ignored by decision-makers planning, shaping and implementing national environmental policy. In a country where the process of pro-environmental transformation of the economy operates, instead of being conducted fairly, it is slowed down and limited. Still most of the electricity is technologically obsolete, government-controlled and monopolistic large companies in the energy sector by burning fossil fuels. Investments in renewable energy sources are limited despite large revenues from speculative trading of CO2 emission rights. This is one of the key drivers of rising energy prices. In view of the above, despite the existing for at least several years the possibilities of increasing the scale of pro-environmental state interventionism, these opportunities were not only not used, but also deliberately the processes of the pro-environmental transformation of the mining and energy sector were and are still being limited and slowed down.
Thank you,

EnergyPlus is a whole building energy simulation program that engineers, architects, and researchers use to model both energy consumption—for heating, cooling, ventilation, lighting and plug and process loads—and water use in buildings. Some of the notable features and capabilities of EnergyPlus include:
  • Integrated, simultaneous solution of thermal zone conditions and HVAC system response that does not assume that the HVAC system can meet zone loads and can simulate un-conditioned and under-conditioned spaces.
  • Heat balance-based solution of radiant and convective effects that produce surface temperatures thermal comfort and condensation calculations.
  • Sub-hourly, user-definable time steps for interaction between thermal zones and the environment; with automatically varied time steps for interactions between thermal zones and HVAC systems. These allow EnergyPlus to model systems with fast dynamics while also trading off simulation speed for precision.
  • Combined heat and mass transfer model that accounts for air movement between zones.
  • Advanced fenestration models including controllable window blinds, electrochromic glazings, and layer-by-layer heat balances that calculate solar energy absorbed by window panes.
  • Illuminance and glare calculations for reporting visual comfort and driving lighting controls.
  • Component-based HVAC that supports both standard and novel system configurations.
  • A large number of built-in HVAC and lighting control strategies and an extensible runtime scripting system for user-defined control.
  • Functional Mockup Interface import and export for co-simulation with other engines.
  • Standard summary and detailed output reports as well as user definable reports with selectable time-resolution from annual to sub-hourly, all with energy source multipliers.

Relevant answer
Answer
Hi. dear Lauren
Prefabrication provides suitable solutions to the problem of large-scale waste generation in construction sites. The use of prefabricated has had many capabilities, including better monitoring of quality improvement of prefabricated products in the construction industry. However, there are many obstacles to its development and application. However, it is possible to meet environmental and quality standards and reduce construction time costs. To make better use of prefabrication, it is necessary to pay attention to the execution methods from the initial stages of design. The development of effective prefabrication methods for large projects, mass housing, construction of residential and private commercial projects is effective in reducing waste generation, and the use of prefabrication methods and modular accrual should be expanded with awareness of environmental aspects.

From an epistemological point of view, it follows that the economic analysis of the object must complement, or better, be part of a sociological analysis of the object. Like economic sociology, the two approaches on this point are difficult to distinguish, socio-economics addresses the economic object. According to Campbell, 2003, at the international level, place of exercise of international financial institutions, the policies of insertion of developing countries into the world economy have mainly resulted in the promotion of foreign investment as a driving force. of growth. Thus, as a condition of access to loans granted by these institutions, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund in particular, developing countries have had to open their economies to investment and international trade.

Is it possible to develop sustainable environment-friendly construction with the concept of smart city, green building and social and housing policy, ie building housing available for citizens with low incomes and, at the same time, housing that would meet the principles of sustainable pro-ecological economic development?
Yes, in my opinion, it is possible to combine technology and business. Taking into account the current technologies of ecological construction, technologies of renewable energy sources, etc., it is possible to combine such technologies as housing, socio-economic, ecological and smart city policies. Currently, this is possible technologically, while the key problem is mainly financing the development of this type of construction.
Unfortunately, as always with the need to develop new pro-ecological technologies, the key issue is the problem of finding sources of financing. In connection with the above, will sustainable sustainable housing development be developed to solve the problems of limited access to housing for people, low-income families, depends mainly on the financial capabilities of the state and local governments, state finances and awareness of the policy makers from the planned specific policy prosocial and residential as well as pro-ecological.
Do you agree with me on the above matter?

As we know, Green Building is one of the main environmental protection targets. Green Building rating system is considered as a means and developed in many areas. In my opinion, it is not widely applied as expected. What do you think is the main challenge for this?
Relevant answer
Answer
There is no challenge to green building however, all green building rating systems are voluntary. Until we mandate energy efficiency such as some of the major US cities have done, green building will take a back seat.
The cost of constructing a green building verse a conventional building ( it could depend on the level of green you are achieving) is about the same. However, if you are achieving a higher level of efficiency, your cost could be 5% to 10% higher. But one must consider the cost benefit analysis such as return on investment (ROI) and saving to investment ratio (SIR).
The US Green Building Council is now world-wide (USGBC.org) The technologies exist and most ,beside mechanical systems, are easily attainable. When looking at a building, you must consider the building as a system...where all systems work together. Once you understand how the building works as a system, the rest becomes easy. Maybe one of the challenges is the lack of education and understanding green buildings.
I agree with the LCA...an important tool in the developing and constructing of green buildings. The carbon footprint is not! With proper planning and execution a green building is and should be common. We have technologies that can delivery a net zero building or one that is net positive. So the challenge is ; do I want to do it right and conserve resources or do I want to conduct business as usual?

This discussion addresses the human elements of sustainable design in urban high-rise buildings. While a number of technical developments have allowed for the minimization of resource consumption, little research has addressed the response of occupants to such facilities, or the degree to which success in reaching sustainability goals is dependent on user behavior. This paper reviews research in related areas and suggests ways in which social, psychological and behavioral issues may be important to sustainable design, as well as how ways attending to psychological needs can improve the success of meeting these and other goals. Social psychological and applied behavior analytical approaches are reviewed as ways to respond to conservation and recycling goals. The psychological and physiological benefits that green buildings confer on their occupants are also addressed, as are areas for future research, and steps that the building industry can take to develop more holistic and sustainable building practices that incorporate occupant behavioral needs.
Relevant answer
Answer
In addition to the energy, factors such as the space quality and security are the challenges that are significant in high-rise buildings. To this purpose, it is necessary to take into account the setting of the formation of human behavior which are the human needs. In fact, paying attention to human needs will create sustainabile behaviors in people. This process is significant both in architectural design by the architect and at the time of the use of space users.

Do you think that grey water play a major role in the sustainable building philosophy ??what are benefits that may be gained due to reuse grey water??
Relevant answer
Answer
Many good answers here.  The whole conversation depends on the availability of clean water - Ottawa, Canada, for example, has a reasonably clean river flowing past it at a minimum flow rate of 500 cms (and upstream reservoirs that can provide that flow for more than a year).  The City takes 5 cms - it will never have a problem providing domestic water. 
I would add that a 4-water system may be useful to think about where ample clean water is not available.
  • Black water - expected to be contaminated with biology, chemistry, and suspended solids.  Not suitable for reuse without biological treatment and physical filtering (eg, septic tank and tile field)
  • Grey water - expected to be contaminated with chemistry and suspended solids.  Not suitable for reuse without fine filtering, but not considered potable without further treatment.  Can then be used for flushing toilets and watering plants.
  • White water - not expected to be contaminated, and not treated further before non-potable uses:  Fire fighting, maybe domestic hot water (if kept above 55C to eliminate pathogens)
  • Blue water - clean water, treated to eliminate pathogens and/or toxic chemistry.  Reverse Osmosis, ozonation, chloramine, etc.
Rain water would be considered grey water, but would be really simple to clean to white water.  White water could be treated at point-of-use to be blue water.
In an urban setting, there would then be 4 pipes coming from the street to service the home.  White and Blue in, Black and Grey out.  Grey gets treated locally and stored locally as White water, and provides fire protection.  Stormwater ponds would be used to supplement grey water.  Etc.

Yes Albert you are true.. why dismount the overhead cables which were installed almost everywhere (costly operation)? It looks folish and quite stupid. However please have a look on the mass of CO2" transported in the electric cables" Have a look please on how is produced electricity in most of the countries... Europe (Poland, Germany, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Serbia)... America (USA, Mexico etc...) Asia (China, India, South Asia countries etc...), Africa (Nigeria, Morrocco, Algeria)...
More than 63% of energy we dispose originate from fossil resources, almost 30% of this energy is distributed as electricity... So most of the "clean" trains are very dark.. why not try changing? A big challenge in terms of energy dispatch is the national, even international grid networks... which appears less and less inadapted to the growing and growing number ReN capture systems. Local collapses (Canada-USA-California) had still occured and major chaos is possible... One has to maintain large grids for efficient mass production and efficient mass distribution, provides generation of electricity is made cleaner and cleaner, but one has to consider as well local ans smaller size production and consumption, which are mode adapted to renewable energy resources (sun, wind, wood, water falls) leading also to some economy in terms of network disposal and management.
I am not so GREEN and Ecolo, since I consider as well interesting the future of high temperature (but small size) nuclear plants able deliver efficiently heat (for electricity production and H2O dissociation).
Here the main idea is to de-fossilize the energy for manking, expecting that presently we have kept enough strategic reserves of ores and minerals aiming overpass more quietly the next centuries for.... billions people...
I have a direct question to you Albert.. since you belong to the Boeing company: Can you say me, please, how many aircrafts are moving per unit of time above us and how many MegaTons of CO2 they produce a year? Let me say that I have nothing against the marvellous aviation, but effectively the efforts made to propel trains with hydrogen, the invitation to use clean-electrical cars, the incitation to use bikes, also to walk a little more could really appear quite ridiculous.

Concept of Green Building in Energy Management system for enviornment friendly system. What are the varios factors should be considered while designing a green building in rural areas for small scale industries? How to improve and implement this concept
Relevant answer
Answer
0- (So-called) Green isn't necessarily sustainable. The following briefly supports the conception of sustainability:
1- As sustainable development deals with the three main spheres of environment, society, and economy; we should take into account all those factors to define a sustainable building. In other words a sustainable building is a building which responds to all the sustainable development goals (SDGs) or, at least, has no contrast with any of them.
2- Strategies and detailed objectives defer from place to place, time to time or case to case. There is no fixed set of materials, design concepts or ideal forms which could serve in all projects.
3- Life-Cycle Sustainability Assessment (LCSA) frameworks, could help the process of decision making by providing overall perspective about the performance of each alternative. However, LCSA is not a design tool or design method.
4- Analyzing and learning from (relatively successful or even unsuccessful) similar projects can be a key to start designing alternatives which could have positive potential to be successful.
