Solar Energy Explained

Image
Solar energy is one of the key parts in the movement against global warming. If we can power things with it, we can end the use of gas and oil. There are two main ways of producing energy from sunlight: Concentrated Solar Thermal Power (CST) and Photovoltaic Power (PV). CST uses mirrors to concentrate sunlight onto a pipe containing water or a synthetic oil called Therminol. It then heats the water or Therminol to several hundred degrees. After the liquid is pumped through the complex system, a heat exchanger uses the energy to create steam, which powers an electricity-generating turbine. The second way of producing solar energy is by using Photovoltaic power. “PV”,  makes electricity directly, without using a turbine. The semiconducting silicon panels, when hit by sunlight, uses the photons in the sunlight to to release the electrons from the atoms in the photovoltaic material so they can come out of the solar cell as an electrical current. To convert the direct current into the alte…

350.org, An Organization Worth Looking Into

Image
For this project, I decided to write about the 350.org Organization. They believe in a safe climate and a better future. They believe that ordinary people like us can change the world if we all come together. Their online campaigns, grassroots organizing, and mass public actions bring together a global network active in over 188 countries.

“​Climate change isn’t a distant, abstract problem — it’s here, today. People all over the world are feeling the impacts, from island nations that are going underwater, to indigenous land being exploited for fossil fuel extraction. The fight against climate change is a fight for justice.”, states their website.

To join the movement, it’s pretty simple. You have the power to round up all of your friends, neighbors, and co-workers to help our world become a better place for future generations. You can find many resources on 350.org to help you with your project to educate your community; or start a petition to pass a climate-friendly policy; or implem…

Putin Believes Climate Change Isn’t Man-Made

Image
Charles Digges begins the article by explaining that Putin does not believe that climate change is man-made. He tells his “friend” Mr. President Trump, that the scientific facts that say the climate change stems from mankind, are “alternative facts.” Digges then moves on to saying that there was a conference in Arkhangelsk, also called, The Arctic. The topic of discussion is of the climate change. Putin pursued a dialogue about how humans are not to blame. The evidence of this claim include only an eyewitness who has “photographic memory.” This witness says that the melting glaciers and ice cover started around 90 years ago. Putin goes on to say that there were no emissions that could do this to the environment at that time. Putin told Trump these claims and helped Trump undo all of Obama’s orders and accomplishments. Digges then goes on to say that Putin and Trump are encouraging other countries to follow them in suit. By that I mean they want other countries to cut the environmental…
