If I could, I would possibly do anything I can to help save our rainforests! I would start by cutting back on the palm oil, that is mainly found on all the U.S foods and that is the key distributor to deforestation. Also another thing I would do is Go Green! Use less fuels, ride a bike! I also would restore damaged ecosystems by planting trees on land where forests have been cut down, encourage people to live in a way that doesn't hurt the environment and last but not least establish parks to protect rainforests and wildlife.
It removes pollution that has been link to lung cancer and the aggravation of asthma and allergies. Without renewable energy, we might soon find that exercising outdoors (breathing the air) would actually be more harmful than helpful. Renewable resources reduce electricity and industrial pollution, which is one of the major causes of acid rain through its byproduct of sulfur oxides which are spewed into the air. This causes our rivers and lakes to become a acidic, which damages crops and vegetation, but is harmful to animals who drink it. Efficient vehicles and industry reduce carbon dioxide which traps heat into our atmosphere and is believed to be a cause of global warming.
Fossil fuels are notorious for producing large amounts of carbon dioxide and other gases that are harmful to humans and the environment. This harmful effect constitutes a need for renewable sources of energy. Sources of renewable energy, such as wind energy have a “Low life cycle carbon footprint, and break even in eight months” (1) Often, the only carbon dioxide produced by renewable energy is that required in the making of the materials. A renewable resource quickly compensates for the carbon produced in production by producing electricity that other polluting sources would have produced. (2) Renewable energy is simply better for the environment then non-renewable energy, according to the Union of concerned scientists, the statistics show that “The comparison becomes clear when you look at the numbers.
Reflection History We discussed some pretty thought provoking topics, and innovative ideas throughout our reading. Marks made predictions about our society based on the past events of history. Garbage Land introduced the concept of “Zero Waste” a philosophy of eliminating trash, and recycling and bettering the world around us. Lastly, Oil On The Brain pushed the fact that society does not have much oil to rely on left, and the time for a fuel alternative is now. The idea that really inspired me was the concept of “Zero Waste”, I love the philosophy behind that.
Saving of paper, cans or bottles have been encouraged by the governing bodies around the world, it can thus help protect environment and cause less waste or polution. Water purification, air purification, sewage treatment etc. are various examples of application of clean technology, but the most interesting and the most important are energy conservation and clean power. Basics of energy conservation is the utilization of devices that require smaller amounts of energy in order to reduce the consumption of electricity. Reducing the use of electricity causes less fossil fuels to be burned to provide that electricity, also is making the easier way to use alternative and clean power.
We humans do not understand the full extent of the power we can get from the materials that God has given us! One of the reasons why I want to study solar energy is because it is clean. Gas run engines pollute the air and costs a good amount of money to run. Nuclear energy is great, but we still have to store the rods that are taken from the nuclear plant and there is also the chance of nuclear fallout and meltdown. Another reason why I want to study solar energy is because it is available!
What a lot of people may not know is the reason for these hikes. Well, one of the most compelling causes is the depletion of the sources of electricity, including coal, oil, and gas. 2. It reduces carbon footprint. By opting to limit your home’s or office’s use of fossil products and utilising solar, geothermal, or hydro power instead, you are not only saving electrical energy, but also reducing greenhouse emission in the environment.
"hidden elements" in preprepared foods such as preservatives, colorings and of course things like palm oil which is a major source of deforestation. Eating raw also means you make less trash to pollute the environment with. When you eat raw you will barely make any trash because your waste becomes peels, pulp from juices, and the ends of vegetables, which all can be composted. If everyone was to go raw and begin to compost our environment would benefit in several ways. Choose organic.
In order to harness biogas effectively, it isimportant to use advance technology to improve the efficiency of using biogas. TwoAmerican utilities have found the purification technology that turn organic waste andgas from sewage plants into natural-gas which can serve the local people. (Rosenthal,E. 2010) On the one hand, using advanced purification technology can produce moreefficient biogas so that it provides an alternative of fossil fuels that help the utilitiesmeet the local people ’ s energy need. On the other hand, the advanced technology thattransforms the waste into biogas, it is effective in recycling waste and weakening theimpact of waste on the environment.
Recycling reduces air and water pollution because the recycling process reduces the amount of air pollution produced by power plants and the amount of water pollution produced by chemicals used in the manufacturing process. Recycling reduces the garbage placed in landfills, which helps the environment by reducing the need for new landfills. Because modern landfills are sealed tightly in an attempt to protect the environment from contamination, they also inhibit degradation of organic waste. Items that consumers purchase because they are biodegradable and therefore, are supposed to decay quickly, are taking decades to decay when sealed off from air and water. Papers, including newspapers, are a major filler of modern landfills.
