  • Climate Change: One Of The Largest Threats To Life On Earth

    climate change is due to the usage of coal. According to the US Energy Information Administration, a non-biased governmental agency that reports statistical information on US power production for expert study, roughly 33% of the electricity produced in America is produced by coal (“Electric Power Monthly”). This rate is around the same as it is globally, The Shift Project Data Portal, a site reporting data on the climate and energy to experts for use…

  • What Effect Does Technology Have On The Environment

    “You can 't make positive choices for the rest of your life without an environment that makes those choices easy, natural, and enjoyable.” (Deepak Chopra)5 The environment plays an enormous factor whether an innovation is introduced or not. The effects an innovation has on the environment can either make or break the entire project. If the effects are negative, then it is likely the project will not reach it’s next stage. However, technology is a brilliant thing. Many people in todays society do…

  • Sea Slug's Solar Energy Theory

    Article 1: Scientists unravel the colorful sea slug's solar-energy theory 1) Why are chloroplasts important for plants? Chloroplasts are important for plants because they contain Chlorophyll, used in photosynthesis. The Chlorophyll is what made it possible for plants to absorb and process the sun's energy and combine it with carbon dioxide and water to grow and make food. Photosynthesis also releases oxygen for humans to breath. 2) List two reasons and explain why the chloroplasts were helpful…

  • Solar Energy: The Main Cause Of Global Warming

    global warming is alternative energy sources, more specifically solar panels. According to the National Resources Defense Council, or NRDC, global warming occurs when air pollutants, such as carbon dioxide, collect in the atmosphere. These air pollutants then absorb and trap solar radiation, instead of allowing it to escape into space. These pollutants…

  • Energy Vs Dark Energy

    Energy is a mysterious and everlasting component which exists within the universe; it is the existential source of power which human beings have harnessed through technology in order to progress and evolve. It is fair to note that energy is quintessential to every action and reaction occurring in the universe at all times. Furthermore, the law of conservation of energy states that energy cannot be created nor destroyed but can be transferred between different forms and states and even between…

  • The Importance Of The Viability Of Bandgap Energy

    junction producing the lowest current. Therefore, current density, which has an inverse relationship with bandgap energy, should ideally be equal between the junctions. However, multijunction designs are intrinsically based on a range of bandgaps, so material selection involves a compromise between matched current densities and ideal coverage of bandgaps. Layer thickness can be optimized to minimize losses [7]. Power conversion efficiency is defined as the ratio of electrical power output from…

  • Atacama In Chile

    demonstrates the dedication of the move toward renewable energy sources in Chile. The main tower of the solar plant is over 200 meters tall and surrounded by 10,600 mirrors reflecting sunlight toward the solar receiving tower. Although this is not the biggest solar power plant in the world, it is the first in South America. Chile’s geographic advantages have made it a perfect location for the beginning of South America’s move toward solar energy due to its vast wilderness, intense sunlight, and…

  • Sustainable Renewable Energy In The United States

    Looking over the United States use of energy, there have been millions and millions of dollars spent on energy. Energy is needed to provide the basic needs such as: food, production, transportation, housing manufacturing, construction, and many other things. We depend on so many things, especially in the U.S. Our biggest energy source are the fossil fuels and we are no longer limiting the amounts of how much we use up. I would say we have reached a certain peak in which we have used up all of…

  • What Is Renewable Energy?

    Renewable Energy * Wind * Solar * Geothermal * Biomass * Hydroelectric Wind Energy Wind Energy is an effect of the sun 's uneven heating of the atmosphere. Wind energy is commonly harnessed by turbines. Wind is formed when warm air expands and rises up, while cold air condenses and sinks. Wind energy can be used to power boats or even charge a battery. Although, it 's almost a perfect choice, it has its setbacks. The generators need a lot of land in order to function properly and if…
