Let’s look at a topic intrinsically tied to protecting and preserving our environment: using renewable and alternative energy.
There’s no question that natural gas and oil are the lifeblood of the modern world. We need it to power our homes, fuel our cars, and keep our industries afloat. However, our planet only has so much fossil fuel, and the effect of using these fuels is believed to be significantly impacting our environment over time.
As a result, scientists have started searching for other sources of energy. Some of the most common examples include solar and wind energy, but many critics believe these sources won’t be enough to produce the power we need efficiently and effectively.
Even nuclear energy, which can produce a significant amount of power with low carbon emissions, often conjures up the memories of the Chernobyl and Fukushima catastrophes. These events have left both of these areas too dangerous to travel to or live in, even to this day.
