The Only Risk Free Solution to Stop Greenhouse Gas Emissions is for All Nations to use Renewable Energy Forms.
Global warming is currently the most pressing issue facing our world. So important that when an international survey asked the open-ended question about the most urgent problem facing their country, Australian’s cited environment/climate change . Processes using fossil fuels, such as coal and oil that emit greenhouse gasses (methane, carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxide) are currently and have for many years been taking a devastating toll on our environment. The average temperature of the earth has increased by 0.18 ˚C since the start of mass production in the industrial revolution 100 years ago. This in turn is causing polar caps to melt, sea levels to rise, changing the weather patterns society depends on, and acidifying our oceans. In December 2007 representatives from over 180 countries came together in Nusa Dua Bali for an international climate change conference. The aim of the conference was to culminate a number of forward-looking decisions that represent the various tracks that are essential to reaching a secure climate future. Currently though the only risk free way to sustain base load, and not contribute to greenhouse gasses is for all nations to use forms of renewable energy.
At the moment there are many types of renewable energy that are being used and developed to create power. Some of these being solar, wind, hydro, wave and tidal. Renewable energy sources are methods that use natural recourses such as, sunlight, wind, rain, tides and geothermal heat to provide energy. They do not emit any greenhouse gasses into the environment, can be replenished in a short period of time and are all safe forms of creating or harvesting energy.
Hydro Electricity is energy powered by moving water, and has been used since the late 1800’s . Currently it has the greatest yield factor of all the renewable energy technologies, providing 20% of...
