It’s summer! The suns out, and the sun is a brilliant source of renewable energy.
Other renewable energy sources include:
- Geothermal resources
These renewable energy sources can be used to produce electricity and can be sustained forever, meaning that less fossil fuels will have to be burned in order to produce electricity, and therefore there will be reduced emission of harmful gases such as carbon dioxide and methane. These gases would cause the earth to heat up and it would, in time, have drastic effects on all of us, however, at the moment it is affecting those in poverty most seriously, and many are struggling to cope with the destruction and chaos that severe weather such as hurricanes is causing, and this weather is made more likely by climate change.
But it’s easy for us all to make a difference; everyone can help, no matter how little or huge the action!
I challenge you to make a difference this summer! Try using a renewable energy source: you could buy a solar panel or, like me, you could build a miniature wind turbine to produce electricity that you can either store or use in order to power an appliance such as a light.
What will you do to save the planet?
