As of now, deuterium and tritium, isotopes of hydrogen, were used, because they were considered the most achievable because the amount of energy needed to sustain a reaction was minimal compared to that of other elements. However, using deuterium should not be the goal for it creates un-harvestable energy such as neutron-radiation. Hydrogen and Boron should be the focus of nuclear fusion fuels. Hydrogen and Boron as reactants for nuclear fusion would the
Due to supercool, there would be very less friction and rest of the friction could be reduced by the vacuum. These generators may be able to be the future of energy. In order to constantly generate energy, the source needs to be renewable or else the conversion of energy will not take place. Hence the source of the energy should be renewable and overcome obstacles like energy leak. In our current state we use up a lot of non-renewable sources that not only harm the environment, but also harm us.
Although it is a valid point that Fossil Fuels are easier to power America with due to years of experimentation, the environmental drawbacks out way the gain. Essentially, if America invested more into experimentation with renewable energy it could be perfected and suited for the growing need. For this reason, opponents argue that it will ultimately be more cost effective to invest in the development of sustainable energy. Furthermore, renewable energy is cheaper to sustain once properly integrated with global infrastructure. Ultimately, Renewable energy (with enough effort) can potentially keep up with energy
Hazard Awareness and Prevention 4.1 Awareness 4.1.1 Public Perspective: To date, FGAN does not fall into the broad list of regulated substances stipulated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (OSHA, n.d.). Since FGAN is unpredictably explosive, there is need for increased public awareness of hazardous substance-material exposure across the country. The location of such facilities should be clearly demarcated from both commercial and residential areas to minimize loss of lives and property in the event of an explosion (CSB, 2016a). 4.1.2 Firefighting Crew Perspective The CSB video has recognized attempts by the firefighting crew to establish a plan of action for containing an explosion that they were unfamiliar with (CSB, 2016a). To avert future incidents, the firefighting crew and workers within hazardous material facilities should enroll for the hazardous material (HAZMAT) awareness course.
This gaseous are lighter than the air, colorless and odorless. Usually, this gaseous may use as to heat home or cook the food but this natural gas vehicle gaseous are not dangerous as the gaseous that use at home for cook. Natural gas vehicle is more environmentally then the Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) because it produces less pollution and every natural gas vehicle combustion system does not produced greenhouse gases. According to Callanan (2011) said, as with all vehicle fuels, natural gas can be used safely if the unique properties of the fuel are understood and common sense procedures are followed. In fact, natural gas has safety advantages compared to gasoline and diesel because it is non-toxic, and has no potential for ground or water contamination in the event of a fuel release.
Given the information provided in the film, I believe electric cars are a reasonable alternative to combustion engines because they don’t produce harmful emissions like gasoline cars do. According to the film, even the first electric cars were quiet, fast, and produced no exhaust. This is a clear advantage over combustion engines, which produces exhaust that contains carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and nitrogen oxide. Not only do they produce no emissions, but electric cars do not need as much maintenance as combustion engines do. This is due to the fact that there are no spark plugs or oil to be changed.
Gathering energy from waves is a clean and renewable process that poses a huge potential. In addition, different from fossil fuels, creating power from waves creates no harmful byproducts such as gas, waste, and pollution. The energy gathered from waves can be taken directly into electricity-producing machinery and used to power generators and power plants. In today's modern times it is hard to come by a clean source of energy that does not harm the environment. Taking advantage of only the waves no greenhouse gas emissions or water pollutants are created.
To begin with, nuclear energy has several major advantages. A large amount of energy can be produced with only a tiny amount of energy input to the power generator. The maintenance cost is low also. Therefore, it is a cost-effective energy source comparable to fossil fuel. Moreover, unlike fossil fuel, it will not cause serious air pollution.
Throughout history, new power sources were found which eventually became a hazard rather than a salvation. Many created pollution or put workers in high risk situations. However, modern technology has made possible to ability to create power through harnessing the wind while while releasing nothing harmful into the environment. While it may be questioned if wind turbines are the best option to avoid the negative effects of other power sources, wind power in fact is a superior power source that eliminates most of the consequences of traditional power generation. Economically, the use of wind turbines has many benefits after a substantial, initial investment.
Firstly, hydropower is fueled by water, so it's a clean and green resource. No fuel is burnt and therefore no pollutants are produced unlike power plants that burn fossil fuels, such as coal or natural gas and produce harmful pollutants such as nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide in the air. It also doesn’t produce carbon dioxide; a greenhouse gas contributing to global warming. Secondly, it is a renewable resource as we cannot run out of water. Water is recycled on the earth naturally through the water cycle.
