What can we do about the energy crisis locally in Kent?
We need to take more heed of the non renewable energy issues we are encountering today before it is too late. Unsustainable energy is energy that is taken from sources that are being eaten up faster than they can be topped up. Fossil fuels for example take millennia to form but it takes much less time than that to use them up. We need to save the energy sources we have at the moment and supplement or replenish them with sustainable energy sources such as sun, wind, water and biomass.
How have we gotten ourselves into this dire situation? The answer exists in technological lack of efficacy, industrial growth and a rise in demand due to the rise in the population on the earth. The world’s energy problems can be resolved. It is not too late yet.
Geothermal energy incorporates digging into the centre of the Earth. This is clearly easier said than done and much more expensive than some of the other kinds of renewable energy we have available. Biomass energy involves gleaning energy from bio materials from living, or things which have been recently living. Biomass energy can be grown from several forms of flora including switch grass, hemp, sugarcane, willow, poplar and corn to name only a few of them.
This sounds like a simplified solution to our energy issues but there is some discussion over the use of crops which can be eaten as fuel, with a large proportion of the world dying of famine. Is it the best to use recently discovered fecund land in nations with large percentages of its people having limited food resources, to grow plants for biofuel? Water, wind and solar energy are great sources to help us solve our fixation with non-renewable energy forms. All are mostly impossible to cut down on and with the world’s consumption of energy as it is, this is precisely what we are in need of.
How to learn more about renewable solutions
If you wish to learn more about how we can deal with these non renewable energy problems, the web is full of resources. The internet can give you anything from basic explanations of each of the different sources of both non-renewable and renewable energy. You can find the advantages and disadvantages of each type and the most recent progress in harvesting green energy sources.
You can even discover online resources that allow you to work out, for free, your own solar and wind details if you are now using these sources of energy. Search for “solar and wind estimator” or anything along those lines. You will be surprised by what you can find!
