Growing up in the 80s and 90s in Canada, I experienced first hand how environmental consciousness was starting to catch on. We saw our first blue boxes (curb side recycling bins) in the late 80s. The schools were also really focused on education about the ozone layer, acid rain, and global warming. I even did a project on hydrogen as a fuel for cars. Environmental consciousness was really engrained into our minds.
Solar energy is much easier to use in the city and so many people in cities can lower their energy by making use of this energy source. The roof solar-panels that are needed can be placed on the roof out of sight. Some people think this that solar panels can be an ugly sight, but that is an individual’s taste.
There’s also hydropower advocate and writer Al Weinrub. He argues that decentralized energy, or putting renewable systems in as many places in a community as possible, generates wealth, spurs economic revitalization and helps adapt to climate change.
Luckily for Tom and Barbara, they had a stream running behind their property. The incline was steep enough that they could run a pipe of 2-4 inch diameter upstream, so that natural pressure could be created when the stream’s running water was forced through the pipe. The rest of Tom’s plan could be adapted using the stream’s running water, rather than an independent water source. The excess electrical energy from their hydropower unit was able to be diverted to a nearby water heater.
Having your own home business offering something people need and want will prepare you for a possible loss of employment. The unemployment rate is going to go way up. In some European countries there is now 30 and 40% unemployment. In the U.S. 9% unemployment is already causing a lot of pain and discomfort for a lot of people. Imagine 40% unemployment. Do not think because it has not happened in your life time that it cannot happen.
China is front and center when the future of our planet is discussed. The country may still be communist from a political perspective, but it has taken a strong capitalist approach to economic matters. In fact, it is only a matter of time till the “communist” label is dropped as a whole. While China is experiencing massive economic growth, many see future problems.
Well, first, it’s highly profitable. When you install the proper biomass technology for your raw materials, you’ll find that you can benefit from the many biomass advantages. And that’s not just in relation to cash profits. You also need to think about your company’s image. When you produce renewable energy, the public begins to see you in a better light. No longer are you just a power company. You become a leader in the fight against global warming.
