A metal security strip pokes out of a clump of euro banknotes which were damaged during the recent flooding, at the money analyzing laboratory of Germany's Federal Reserve bank, Deutsche Bundesbank, in Mainz July 31, 2013. The 13-member analyzing team specialize in the reconstruction of damaged or destroyed banknotes. Once the banknotes are verified, the Bundesbank will transfer the money back to the owner's account, while the damaged notes will be burned. Within eight weeks after the heavy floods in eastern and southern Germany more than 100,000 banknotes worth more than three million euros were sent to be examined. Last year the laboratory checked more than 840,000 banknotes worth over 32 million euros. REUTERS/Kai Pfaffenbach (GERMANY - Tags: BUSINESS SOCIETY)

Belgian cook Alexandre Vanlancker shakes a pot of mussels at the Chez Leon restaurant in central Brussels November 24, 2011. Mussels start as larva, until they are heavy enough to sink to the bottom of the sea, where they grow wiry threads -- known as beards -- that allow them to latch on to anything around, forming great clumps of dark and heavily encrusted shells. There in the deep, they feed heartily on plankton and grow plump. Marine mussels tend to live on exposed shores in intertidal waters and after two to three years are ready to be harvested. Zeeland, on the north coast of Belgium and the western Netherlands is a perfect place for the young molluscs to grow up and was long the source of most mussels in Belgium.

A man holds a clump to determine if it is oil from the spill in the Gulf of Mexico on Elmer's Island, Louisiana May 13, 2010. For over three weeks roughly 5,000 barrels (210,000 gallons/795,000 liters) of oil per day have been gushing from BP's broken Deepwater oil well situated in the Gulf of Mexico, in what could be named the worst oil spill in U.S. History.

A worker receives gold pieces from a machine after the separation process at a laboratory in Lima
A worker receives gold pieces from a machine invented by Peruvian engineer Carlos Villachica after the separation process at a laboratory in Lima April 16, 2010. Villachica says he has come up with an environmentally sound way to isolate gold from clumps of sand without using toxic mercury that wildcat miners in the Amazon basin rely on to extract the precious metal, then dump into rivers. The small, cylindrical machine blends mineralized dirt with jets of pressurized air, water and biodegradable chemicals in a centrifugal motion that produces a cocktail of thousands of bubbles that rise to the surface attached to specks of gold.

The ground cracked by drought is seen in the Andean town of Potosi in the state of Tachira February 21, 2010. A 25-meter-tall church and the ruins of a Potosi town flooded in the early 1980s have emerged from the Uribante-Caparo water reservoir after a drought reduced water levels. The reservoir's hydroelectric plant, which powers Venezuela's Andean region, is currently only generating seven percent of its 300 megawatt capability, worsening the country's power crisis.
