Global Warming & Alternative Energy Ideas
Adesh Chaurasia– Global Warming & Alternative Energy Ideas
The fear of global warming has led to some interesting alternative energy ideas for the future that would have less impact on the environment. Constant research takes place daily for sources of energy that utilize our natural resources, have little repercussion on our atmosphere, cost less, and are naturally renewable.
There has been much research in the area of solar power, tapping geothermal heat inside the earth, harnessing the power of the tides as an energy source, and wind turbines, but scientists are going further into their imaginations to develop energy from sources never thought of before.
For instance; scientists are studying marine algae in the hopes that they could generate power from the methane given off by rotting algae; the methane could then be harnessed to provide methane for burning to power industrial needs for energy. Corn is being tested as a fuel (ethanol) for cars, as well as home heating sources, and there are many other areas that you may not have thought about.
Early studies are looking at the falling rain and how it might be used to generate power (same premise as harnessing wave power). I’m not a scientist, so I can’t even begin to explain how or why this might work.
The idea I like best is powering our own personal iPod, cell phone, and home computer with walking power. A leg brace, equipped with an electricity generator, gets the power from your every step. Need it charged
quickly? Go for a long run; need a little power to power my laptop to get me through the meeting, go walk an hour!
Nuclear-generated electricity isn’t renewable but a carbon-emission-free option, which means its generation produces very low levels or almost no CO2, just like any other renewable energy source. Nuclear energy has a very stable and dangerous source, which means it’s not dependent on the weather and will help get to net zero carbon status.
Renewable energy is one of the most effective tools we have in the fight against climate change, and we have evidence and every reason to believe it will succeed. Renewable technologies can increasingly save customers money as they will surely displace emissions from fossil fuels, ultimately leading to lessening global warming. Wind and solar energy have experienced remarkable growth and huge cost improvements over the past decade with no signs of slowing down. Prices are declining rapidly, and renewable energy is becoming increasingly competitive with fossil fuels all around the world. In some places, new renewable energy is already cheaper than continuing to operate in an old, inefficient, and dirty fossil fuel-fired way.
Let’s take a look at;
Solar energy is one of the most anticipated forms of renewable energy or an alternative source of direct electricity. For firsts, we will never run out of SunLight under any circumstances and the amount of Sunlight Earth receives in an hour is more than enough to sustain Earth’s energy requirements for a year. It is a one-time installation with long-lasting effects and is quite popular nowadays, most groups and organizations are inclined to install solar power plants.
Wind energy is the most viable source of a pollutants-free, clean source of unlimited energy. Nowadays, Wind farms are quite adaptable and seen across many settlements, it has a huge contribution towards the National and State Power Grid too. It is difficult to set up a wind farm and the requirements are very high too. It takes a certain geographical location and trajectory. However, it shouldn’t stop us from using this method, and governments around the world are working on it.
