    Climate change poses an issue for many regions. This is true especially for coastal regions below sea level. The logistics of trying to counteract the effects of climate change are seemingly ridiculous. For regions like Southern Florida, the effects of climate change are severe to the point that they cannot be mitigated with tradition methods of dealing with a rise in sea level. Some short term solutions involve creating bigger and bigger pumps to transport the water away from important areas,…

    There are many types of renewable energy sources in the world. We can run the world forever off of these energy sources, until something catastrophic happens to the planet. There can be a plethora of similarities and differences between the types of energy. So I am going to break down solar energy and wind energy. The most obvious and simple similarity of these two is that they create power, and lots of it. A single solar panel can create a few kilowatts (kW) to over 100. While a single wind…
