(Woodford, 2007) According to Moyo (2016), Wind energy, which involves using air to turn turbines and generate electricity, is regarded as one of the most reliable, cheap, renewable and clean forms of power that do not pollute the environment in comparison to other types such as thermal. Nowadays, windmills have been used for alternative energy purposes. Others for tourism purposes and there are also windmills that are still being used for agricultural purposes. But nowadays, the windmills are mostly known for energy production, which can be used as an alternative to the dependence on fossil fuels. Since fossil fuels are being burnt and ignited for the generation of electricity, its emission into the atmosphere causes ozone layer destruction which follows to global warming.
We preserve our planet for future generations by looking at the role science is playing to cut down carbon-based energy to move to renewable low-carbon energy to meet our constantly increasing demands of electricity consumption. Green electricity benefits us to produce electricity from sources which would not harm or pollute our environment. For sure, few electricity bases may also have influences but they are much greener than the others. The most suitable energy sources are the renewable energy sources, as they will never expire or run out. (Figueiredo, João Neiva De, 2014) Nuclear energy is number one in the production of electricity.
Nuclear energy is a clean, safe, reliable and competitive energy source. Currently it is seen as the only source of energy to replace other part of fossil fuels which harm the environment and emits large amount of greenhouse gases. Almost no carbon dioxide, and sulfur dioxide or nitrogen oxides are produced in nuclear plants. Nuclear power should be deployed to replace coal, oil and gas in the industrial countries. In the future, nuclear electric power plants will also provide power for electric vehicles for cleaner transportation.
The 3 resources,"The Power of the Wind , Deacon Residential and Commercial Wind Turbines, and Wind Turbines 101 are about how wind energy is beneficial to human life.The text" The Power of The Wind "has a strong argument , while " Deacon Residential and Commercial Turbines" has a weak argument while the video,"Wind Turbines 101" needs some improvement. The text "The Power of the Wind" is strong because the text has good reasoning because the author has logical reasoning to support his claim and he never uses bias. That statement is proved because in Paragraph 5 it includes,"Wind is an excellent for of energy because it is renewable, meaning that it will always be replenished by itself." This proves my claim because it shows that he states true facts and that it is logical because compared to coal and oil who emit gases and it is not renewable so it proves that wind power if beneficial. another piece of evidence from the txt includes,"However wind turbines cannot be placed just anywhere...Both
By harnessing energy from the sun, dependence on more environmentally harmful sources as oil and coal can be decreased.This is a great alternative to these nonrenewable resources. Solar energy reduces the destruction of pristine forests.These forest make carbon dioxide to clean up the toxins in the air. Without all of these forest the climate changes rapidly. Solar power keeps this from happening. A positive effect of solar power is that it saves you money.
Politics- Perspective 2: Renewable energy should not replace fossil fuels because of its many benefits. Environment- When fossil fuels (Oil, Coal etc.) burn, they release many pollutants into the atmosphere and they also release carbon which mixes with oxygen to make carbon dioxide (CO2). The only thing that CO2 is good for is plants in general, because plants absorb CO2 in the day to produce oxygen. Economic- Fossil fuels are very important for the world economy as they take a large percentage of exports.
wind energy and solar energy are both renewable types of energy they create no pollution and are fully sustainable as they are both powered by natural sources and if there is no wind one day the solar panels can generate energy and if it 's cloudy another day the windmills can generate energy also the energy created during the summer can be sold to the grid for extra capital that can be used for field trips, renovations, etc. Geothermal heating systems are rated the most efficient and eco-friendly heating systems. The system works using buried coils that contain a liquid, typically a mix of water and antifreeze. The liquid is warmed to the same temperature as the earth and then runs through to the home where a compressor extracts the heat but not only that geothermal heating requires no fossil fuels so it is very eco-friendly LED lighting is an efficient and eco friendly lighting alternative because they waste much less energy in converting to light compare to incandescent lights which waste 90% of the energy to convert to heat not only that LED lights last up to 15-25 times longer that traditional light bulbs this makes LED a much better source of lights than others because it wastes less energy and it is more efficient at doing its job this is so much better for the environment because it uses less energy that other lighting sources We need this in our Eco-School because plugged in appliances that are turned off still uses energy and this is a complete waste of energy and
Wind energy is currently one of the most popular sources of renewable energy due to it being inexpensive, currently competing in price with fossil fuels (Kim and Dah-Chuan Lu 2010). Wind turbines function by using the kinetic energy of the wind to drive the blades of the turbine causing the generator to convert the kinetic energy into electrical energy (Mahela and Shaik 2016). Horizontal axis turbines are the most common type of turbine. Figure 1 the setup of an air turbine with the two most common type of generators these are squirrel cage induction and doubly feed induction generators, with the doubly generators being preferred due to having control of synchronous speed (Wallace 2014). According to (Islam, Guo and Zhu 2014) in 2014 wind energy output was 280 GW worldwide.
Future possibilities and environment benefits, there’s a study that it lessen the air pollution by using it. Abundant domestic production, increased resale value and more affordable maintenance. As evidenced in the Environment Protection Agency, natural gas as the cleanest fossil fuel was used in many ways to help reduce the emissions of pollutants into the environment. Burning natural gas than other fossil fuels emits fewer harmful pollutants and increase the reliance on potentially reduces emission of those many harmful pollutants. The use of natural gas does not significantly contribute in the formation of the smog as it emits lower nitrogen oxide and doesn’t have particulate matters.
