Reducing ground water levels will have consequences on the wider ecosystem and it will affect wetlands. Drilling in the Gulf of Mexico could damage the sea bed and even destroy ecosystems not even discovered yet. Also conflict over who will get the oil in the Arctic will be in dispute and will most likely be economically costly and large social conflicts with tribesmen there and
In addition, the ability of forests to soak up man-made carbon dioxide is weakening. The increase of Co2 being released into the atmosphere will affect the climate rather than the Co2 being safely locked away in the trees. Carbon dioxide is considered a primary greenhouse gas, or a gas that traps heat in the atmosphere and can lead to the warming of the planet. Unfortunately this will be an ongoing problem throughout British Columbia’s interior for at least another decade. Ecologically, renewal begins almost immediately; however, if left to do so naturally the process will be slow.
“I really do encourage other manufacturers to bring electric cars to market. It's a good thing, and they need to bring it to market and keep iterating and improving and make better and better electric cars.” Said Elon Musk. Electric car is an electrical vehicle that uses chemical energy stored in its’ rechargeable battery, they are one of earliest creations amongst the automobiles devised by the famed engineer Thomas Parker 1884. Nevertheless, electric cars didn’t see the light after the evolution of internal combustion engines and mass production of low-priced gasoline powered vehicles led to deterioration in the use of electric vehicles. However, by the beginning of 21th century and the increased percentage of greenhouse gasses emissions;
As we are theoretically reaching “peak oil”, “peak gas” etc. as well as the occurring of global warming and a number of environmental issues, the call for more “clean”, “sustainable” renewable energy has been increasing dramatically. However, some critics argue that renewable energy such as wind, solar, biomass, alone can not sustain the world in the future. In this essay, I will argue that renewable energy is not a viable way for replacing established energy sources by analyzing the geographic and natural limitations, impacts on ecosystems and the efficiency on cutting greenhouse emissions of renewable energies. The real solution should be reducing energy consumption.
INDEX INTRODUCTION COMPRESSED AIR TECHNOLOGY (CAT) CONSTRUCTIONAL DETAILS WORKING OF C.A.T. ENGINES COMPARISON WITH ELECTRICAL VEHICLE’S SPECIFICATIONS * Power source * Recharge * Engine * Performance * Exterior and Body ADVNATAGES AND DISADVANTAGES CONCLUSION REFRENCES ABSTRACT In this modern era we want more comfortable life & to achieve this, there are many inventions and researches are going on in the field of engineering but as each action having there some opposite reaction that may be good or bad. Some achievements may lead to problems in future and one of these achievements is fossil fuel engines which were a good achievement for us before 30-40 years but now they are one of the sources of contributor of global worming and pollution with fossil fuel crises. To cope up with this problem we have to use such engines which emits less or zero COx & NOx particles, for that one of the solutions is hybrid electrical vehicle but again they emit some COx & NOx so this is not a complete solution for this problem. The best feasible solution is Zero Emission Vehicle i.e.
At first we thought that this is a gift from Mother Earth, but we now realize its consequences. Pollution and wastes that are excreted into the environment can yield devastating aftermath that will affect not only Earth, but also humans. After centuries from now, these sources will also be depleted. So we should find recyclable alternatives that are more efficient and cleaner than the traditional sources. Energy sources on Earth is finite, nothing will last forever.
People around the world highly depend on fossil fuels. Fossil fuels has powered the industrial revolution and helped to make the western world what it is today. But each year its becoming clearer that our uncontrollable use of fossil fuels is making us problems and will harm us in the far future. Fossil fuels have many uses that we depend on for instance if we don’t extract fossil fuels we won’t be able to use cars, airplanes, and trains. Moreover we use fossil fuels to power electricity plants and to heat our homes.
Non-renewable fuels are organically-derived fuels. The original organic material, with the aid of heat and pressure, becomes a fuel such as oil or gas. These fuels are hard to come by and are sometimes harmful to the environment when burned. Concerns about these fuel sources has been very prominent in the past few years. Concerns greenhouse gas emissions and many other things such as energy security has caused for people to look towards a new source of fuel.
All those examples are able to reduce pollution with those easy ideas we can help the environment. In the future I hope they come up with electric cars or maybe even a water powered engine. Another reason for Global warming is Garbage. The things that we put in the garbage take a long time to compose and can release toxic fumes into the air. We already solved some of the problem by recycling and composting but there’s still a huge amount of garbage.
England’s Calder Hall nuclear power station opened in 1956 and was the first commercial nuclear power station in the world (Nuclear energy, 2012). In December 1957, the United States’ first nuclear power plant became operational at a shipping port in Pennsylvania (Nuclear energy, 2012). As of Fall 2011, the number of commercial nuclear reactors had increased to 440 in 30 different countries (Davis, 2011). In 2011, the United States was operating 104 nuclear reactors generating 790 billion kilowatt-hours (U.S. Energy Information Administration, 2012). These reactors are currently able to supply just over 19% of the nation’s electricity needs (U.S. Energy Information Administration, 2012).
