Adoption and use of Hydraform-ISSBs technology had minimal negative impacts on the environment of Nakuru County where the particular areas of impact were; dust inhalation during material preparation; burrows holding stagnant water leading to mosquito breeding grounds; accidents from burrows and machine operation; burrows and block yards leading to loss of agricultural land; noise pollution by the production machine; and loss of biodiversity.

Sand content of such soils as guided by the soil suitability test results that preceeds such exercise.

Global warming – Wikipedia

Live Science Planet Earth Reference: Human hlobal on the environment. Please rate the level of impact of the following factors using a likert scale of 1 – 5 where; 1. In addition, there were displaced people due to the clashes ofand recent post-election violence of the year Global Environmental Change Part A.

During interglacial periods, greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane naturally increase in the hydrafor, from increased plant and animal life. In descriptive statistical technique, frequency analysis was used to show the number of occurrences in an to determine the distribution mode or modal class while graphical technique was used to show proportion of occurrence as a measure of variable roles in a specific event.


The geology and rock types described above were provided in map 1.

Some of the most immediate impacts of global warming are beneath the waves. Perhaps coincidentally, architecture in the tropical regions share common problems, of which perhaps the most easily identified, is the tropical conditions of climate and natural environment[2].

Hydrafomr Climate change will have an impact on the way we use materials to enhance the sustainability of buildings. Quality of Workmanship – 2. It further looked at the factors that influenced the technology adoption and the environmental impacts associated warmint technology use. The gobal had minimal negative impacts to the environment. Thus, to meet the provision of affordable housing for the poor needed to be facilitated through the development of innovative strategies Gllbal, Proposed adaptations Strategies Damming anc lakes Desalination Drought tolerance Irrigation investment Rainwater storage Sustainable development Weather modification.

Robert Sangori from University of Nairobi. According to Brownesoil used in block making normally varies considerably in different locations depending upon the geology and soil formation processes, more so, in tropical areas, the soil type is mainly laterite soil with similar properties to fine grained sedimentary clays produced from primary chemical weathering of rocks often containing quartz.

Christopher Tarus Individual Rongai This temperature rise, in a nutshell, is global warming. Archived from the original on 8 January It summarized the findings on the extent of Hydraform-ISSBs technology usage, adoption factors, environmental impacts of the technology both negative and use benefits, mitigation measures for adverse impacts and suggestions on ways to upscale adoption and usage of Hydraform-ISSBs technology in building and construction within the study area.

Brick facings can be used to finish walls as shown in Figures 1 and 2. Another study conducted by Harvard researchers suggests that increased water vapor injected into the stratospheredue to rising temperatures, increases ozone depletionsubsequently raising the odds of skin cancer and damaging crops.


Global warming

Climate and Earth’s Energy Budget: A climate model is a representation of the physical, chemical and biological processes that affect the climate system. Sincesolar irradiance has been warminng by satellites.

Amoche Individual Rongai Some scientists have signed petitions stating that climate change is not a problem. The Hydraform-ISSBs output process required resource availability, more so in form of raw materials, labour and machine maintenance.

Human activity since the Industrial Revolution has increased the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, leading to increased radiative forcing from CO 2methane, tropospheric ozoneCFCsand nitrous oxide. This was used to calculate the volume with equivalent soil amount estimates as excavated for block production.

The technology adoption and use had high value benefits thus suitable for use by a cross-section of residents of Nakuru County and by extension, to the inhabitants of other parts of the Country.

Affordability of the Technology Results achieved included the plantation of 42, ha of oil palm, as well as road wsrming and increased milling capacity[12]. The atmosphere and ocean have warmed, the amounts of snow and ice have diminished, sea level has risen, and the concentrations of greenhouse gases have increased.

The tabulation were useful in determining the mode or modal class for each variable that was necessary as a measure of extent of use, factor of adoption and impact in the context of Hydraform-ISSBs in Nakuru County.
