Renewable And Clean Sources Of Energy To Tackle Global Energy Crisis

Renewable And Clean Sources Of Energy To Tackle Global Energy Crisis

The future of our civilizations depend a great deal on whether or not we find clean sources of reusable energy to replace the fossil fuels. It is very important that we have clean supply of energy and reduce our dependency on fossils like gas, coal and oil. In many countries of the world, it is already a problem to cope with the recent rise in utility prices and many consumers are feeling that they are unfairly charged for huge amount of energy bills.

Energy sources such as the sun and the wind are reusable because the supply of solar energy and wind powered turbines are not limited. Unlike fossil fuels like oil and gas, It does not get used up as we consume them. The other benefit of using energy from solar and wind powered plants is that it is clean and does not pollute the environment as we use them.

Fossil fuels take thousands of years to form and regenerate, and therefore we cannot consider them as a source of reusable energy. Burning fossil fuels leaves harmful gases in the atmosphere and in the long run can cause even more serious consequences, including severe global climatic changes, global warming, sea level rise, ice cap melting, determination of the ozone layer, acid rain and so on.

One new source of energy being considered recently is called the biodiesel. It is derived from the lipids or fat of algae, and can be a great new source for reusable energy. The lipids form algae is processed and converted into diesel, and the rest of the plant can be used as feed for other plants or animals. Even though algae burn a lot cleaner than other fossils, it still has carbon emission. However, many people would rather have algae in their gas tanks than in their pools.

When it comes to ultimate source of clean energy, nothing beats the power of the sun. It is the ultimate source of clean and reusable energy, which can be used in both large scales as well as small scales in public places and buildings. Directly or indirectly, we get all our energy from the sun. Any kind of energy source you can think of, such as the wind powered plants, the hydroelectric power plants, or fossil powered plants; they all use power from the sun. The sun makes the wind blow, the ocean currents go around the world, even the energy in the fossil came from the energy of the sun. Therefore, there is no denying that the sun is the ultimate source of clean, reusable energy.

Finding clean sources of energy is also important because economy of a country depend upon how they use their energy sources. The production and economic growth of a country depends on finding a uninterrupted supply of clean energy. It is important that we preserve our environment, and so is finding a clean source of reusable energy. Many countries of the world spend thousands of dollars because they import fuels form other countries. They also pay for the consequences such as climatic changes, environmental damages and health related issues which are related to burning fuel and environmental pollution.

Countries like China, Germany and India are already showing that they are taking the environmental issues seriously by increasing their spending on finding and using reusable clean source of energy. China spent an impressive $65 million dollars on reusable energy, which is 85% more than what the US spent last year. China is also imposing higher taxes on carbon emission to regulate the industries and to make their environment safer.

Most people in America, regardless of their political views, are already aware that renewable energy sources should be used more for the future civilization. Most Americans also prefer clean sources of energy for the future generations and believe that finding clean sources of energy is the only way to leave a cleaner earth for our children and grand children.

Taking all aspects of energy sources into consideration, it would be only in our best interest to utilize all available sources for increasing productivity, securing our future, and having a great competitive economy as well as becoming the world leaders and examples for other nations to follow.
