With the current state of our environment, it is literally a responsibility for all human beings everywhere in the world to be aware of climate and environmental issues, and, more importantly, take a firm stand on them. A big problem, however, is in terms of making a grass roots campaign to make everyone understand this issue. While there a lot of websites out there, chiefly, Energy Central, one of the best sites to go to, share, and understand energy-related issues, a lot of people would prefer having them on the go on the smartphones.
With that in mind, here are five great smartphone apps that you can download on your android tablet pc or smartphone:
Tomorrows Power is a great reference tool which you can download and read anywhere – in the bus or in the subway, or while eating lunch. With seventeen in-depth chapters that covers topics from wind, water, solar, biodiesels and more, Tomorrows Power is a great read that will definitely be an eye-opening experience for everyone. Produced by Wolfgang Schmuck, Tomorrows Power is available for a one-time download fee of only $1.37. Definitely a must-buy, considering the amount of information it will give you in return.
