Renewable Energy

Post  Joshua T on Mon Nov 11, 2013 1:15 pm

When it comes to energy many people take it for granted. People leave the lights on, they let the A.C. running all night, they forget to turn off the T.V., and they even let the water run. There are people across the world who are suffering from lack of electricity. There are town arond the world that only get electricity a couple of hours of electricity per month, maybe even years.

Electricity nowadays is very expensive and meny people cant afford it. Not only people cant afford it but electricity burn fossil fuels and it contaminates the air. It is time to go green. Many ways of going green is by using what is around you to create electricity. Wind, Sunlight, Flowing Water and even Manure.

Wind mills are a very efficient way of creating energy. First you have to pick a very windy spot and build a wind mill that is facing the opposite way that the wind normally blows. Wind electricity is portable and it is a very efficient way of creating electricity. Water electricity is a very easy way of creating electricity. On a river build proppelers or a dam and the proppellers will rotate. And just like that you have water electricity 24/7. Sunlight is the easiest way of creating electricity. All you need is a solar panel and a place full of sunlight. Solar panels get charged and can power a whole house with only 10 solar panels. Solar panels are cheap but require alot of maintenance. With a little investement solar panels could become more durable and more efficient. In Brazil there are cars that run of Horse and Cow manure. If we use this al around the world the air pollution would decrease by 50%.

All these methods are very efficient. If we all use them we could make a difference in the lives of many people around the world. We could also decrease the pollution. Just keep in mind, one person can make the difference.

Joshua I completely agree with you, our planet earth is being destroyed because people don't take care of it. They use all the energy they want and it's really bad. And as you stated many people are suffering out there because of not being able to afford those types of things. I think this is a really good topic, to remind us that we should save electricity and be more careful to not waste it. Super topic! Wink

Renewable energy is very important. If we didn't have it, we would not live as long as we have. I think it is great that some people are trying to make a difference and help people around the world get the resources that they need. Great topic Josh!

Saving electricity is one of the main problems that people have in the world today. People use energy a lot when they dont need it and its just destroying our planet one bit at a time. They need to be more careful with how they use it.
