It's true. An ugly truth, but one that everyone has to face.
If you turn on any TV news channel, open any daily newspaper, there's one thing that everyone's telling you.
The Economy Sucks!
It doesn't look like it's getting better any time soon either.
And it's not just in America, things are going downhill all over the globe.
People are getting forced out of their homes, jobs are being cut, and gas prices are getting ridiculous. (If you think American's have it bad, try paying over $10 a gallon like the British have to!)
Throughout the world, there are so many conflicts presently affecting each and every member of the population it becomes difficult to focus on just one problem at a time. Among these global problems the most important of all is the amount of resources that are diminishing every minute of the day. Renewable energy sources need to become a way of life as soon as possible. Take a look here!
One renewable energy source is the use of the sun to create energy that can be converted into a source for electricity. One thing is given while using this source; the sun will never burn out, leaving anyone with no power. In addition electricity can be generated by the use of the wind, or even by creating a water wheel. There are also new innovative mechanisms that can create energy alone with no need for any kind of renewable energy.
Heating a building with petroleum based fuels such as kerosene, diesel, or propane is highly toxic via the exhaust produced and released into the atmosphere. Therefore, wood pellet stoves have been introduced. These stoves burn small pellets which are similar to the size of rabbit pellets and are made of compressed saw dust. This is a good alternative to use for heating a building, but the pellets have become expensive.
Diesel fuel is used in the United States by a number of large trucking fleets to ensure the strength of the economy. These trucks burn a petroleum based fuel that creates carbon in excess amounts, polluting the air and the atmosphere. There is a natural type of biodiesel fuel that will operate a diesel engine and does not create any dangerous exhaust fumes. With a few minor adjustments, this fuel can be used as a heating fuel as well for any forced air furnace that uses kerosene.
Gas motors can be converted into using electric power or an ethanol type of fuel that is made from corn. Ethanol has been outvoted because of the corn used for production. Corn is in high demand because some cultures use corn as a huge part of their diet. Now there are vehicles that operate on water. Water is also diminishing.
Recycling any type of scrap metal is a good practice to implement in an everyday home life style. Another thing is corporations need to cut wastes. Landfills and dumps are the main source of methanol production. Methanol gas is not only highly explosive, but a very deadly toxin that should not be breathed by a mammal.
The body is another method of renewable energy. The more physical labor that is used by the body and hands, instead of the use of power equipment can save a lot of fossil fuels. The body regenerates energy whenever a person sleeps, and hard work never hurts anyone especially children and teenagers.
Renewable energy sources need put into effect immediately. The only people capable of making a dent in the energy crisis are those that are not afraid to try something no one else will attempt.
