Emerging Technologies Analysis 2 Emerging Technologies Analysis – The Environment Society today is becoming vastly aware of our depleting resources, shortages of water, global warming and deforestation. All are important, yet many are interrelated and could potentially be combined in an effort to save our planet from the dangers scientists are “anticipating to occur by the middle of the century” (Live Science, 2010). Although saving the environment always starts with good stewardship and responsibility of the Earth’s inhabitants, many of us think of saving the planet by: keeping the thermostat low, planting trees, recycling, testing for radon or using both sides of the paper. However, Scientists at Life Science have come up with several innovative ideas. 1. “Make paper obsolete. 2. Bury the bad stuff (carbon dioxide) 3. Let plants and microbes clean up after us. 4. Plant your roof 5. Harness waves and ties 6. Ocean thermal energy conversion. 7. Sunny new ideas, using the sun’s energy. 8. The ‘H Power – hydrogen fuel. 9. Remove the Salt – from the oceanic waterways. 10. Make oil from just about anything” (Life Science, 2010). Although analysis of an idea can be very costly and extensive, the S-curve is an “innovative way of determining where the product or service falls in the marketplace” (White & Bruton, 2008).

Emerging Technologies Analysis 3 Surely, several of these innovative ideas could be combined, to incorporate a successful plan of action to save the plant. First, the idea of harnessing the water power of the ocean is an excellent idea. After all, “in the 1800’s, Niagara Falls was already
