The problem with wind turbines is they fall apart and land on people and kill.

There is an eco-friendly solution which will also help you save money spent on electric bills and it`s the generating power method “boma fetching unique” (Google it). Some techniques of conserving power may need sacrifice on your part. Others, nevertheless, simply need a small investment of time and expense.

*[Awesome Plan Here >>>**t.co/WqSHhReOxS** ] I love this book - I want to be more eco friendly and this book tells you what equipment you need to install solar panels, a bit of how it works, and how to maintain said solar panels. This is a great introductory book and gives you a rough estimate on how much each equipment would cost, and down to installing them (from location, to how much sunlight you need and getting all the parts to work)*

Quit your tree-huggin new oil is formed everyday from leaves and animals dying. Your saying that for there to be more oil a mass extinction would have to happen, how? Animals die everyday and that leave you just watched fall they are all created something. Some oil some natural gas they all are carbon based. The only way fossil fuels will go away is if all the carbon on earth just rose out and went to space.
8BitOrange Year ago
Brantley Schnell fossil fuels can just leave into space, they are trapped under the earths atmosphere and that’s what global warming is
Justin H - Innovated Cliché
+Brantley Schnell We can use up all of the fuel until the millions of years are up. In the video they mentioned mass extinction is needed to make a lot of fuel. The meteor that hit the earth made many of animals go extinct. This is the time where a LOT of potential fossil fuel could have been created. Also, we are using it up fast. We use fossil fuels for a LOT of things. soon we will catch up. Not every death becomes fossil fuel you know.
Brantley Schnell
Brantley Schnell 3 years ago
+StoneBrickProductions I understand that but animals didn't just die a million years ago. They have died everyday since then. Not just that one day a million years ago. Which would result in new oil forming all the time if animals died everyday like they do. What you are saying is true. Fossil Fuels would run out in a little bit because animals only died millions of years ago. But that's not true because animals have died everyday for millions of years making new oil around the globe.
Justin H - Innovated Cliché
+Brantley Schnell Fossil fuels and oil are made of many different types of animals. Why did you think I meant only dinosaurs? I did not imply that. Fossil fuels are create when dead animals are buried underground. They are compressed under extreme pressure and heat. It can take a very long time for them to become fossil fuels. Some scientist say it could take millions of years.

Oil is made out of the element carbon. Do you know what is made out of Carbon? Oh yeah, that's right everything that lives, including plants. Isn't it a coincident that all things living are made of Carbon and Carbon forms oil, huh. Wonder if when something dies it goes to the ground to take form of some sort of Carbon or it just leaves Earth? Ask yourself that stuff before you come back with a poor argument. Oil was not just created when dinosaurs died. As soon as one dinosaur died then another animal died... If oil was created from dinosaurs dying, think about how many animals and humans have died since then and plants. Think about all the wars and funerals you have learned about. Think about how many trees have died and leaves have fell. That is all carbon that is put back into the ground. It is a never ending cycle that will go on forever. When something dies it all doesn't got to oil but some of it does and with all the things on Earth that have died it can form a lot of oil from that small percentage of dead things making oil.

"Natural Gas" otherwise known as methane is a renewable resource. Ask a farmer what cow farts are! Or any other farts for that matter. Look up Methane boidigesters.

NON renwewable resources provide more energy than renewable resources. I live in New England and winters get cold, could I heat my home with a windmill? Nighttime is the coldest so how would i use a solar panel then? Could i gaurantee energy when my demand is highest? I think people underestimate the energy in fossil fuels "cuz their gross" and overestimate the renewables, like "Solar freakin' roadways."
daniella 2 years ago
Yes, we know that non renewable resources provide more energy, but the fact is; it's ruining the environment/atmosphere fast. The renewable resources need to be used just as much as the non renewable resources if humanity wants to stand a chance.

Great stuff! Nice work. The public really needs to see more of this. Have you heard anything about a new system called Optimal Future Energy Deployment (it should be on Google)? I’ve heard some interesting things about it and my brother got some amazing results. I’ve also been searching for solutions to the problem of wind turbines killing birds and bats. Ultrasonic acoustics looks like a possible answer to saving bats, but I haven’t read anything lately about the best way to keep birds away from wind turbines. Have you heard anything?

Hey! This is a great example of storytelling in sustainability! You might be interested in GLP's Student Film Project, a film contest for students from middle school to graduate level to submit their short films (5 minutes or less) documenting any sustainability-related story.

If you combine the material in this video (i.e. What is a (non)renewable source) with the module's (i.e. What is the difference between source/resource) then your learners would be able to identify renewable resources based upon the energy source being utilized. Feel free to email me for the eLearning module if it would help :)
Rachel Crabtree
Rachel Crabtree 6 years ago
I just finished a module, which explains the difference between energy "sources" vs "resources". A resource is usually considered renewable based upon two things. 1st: Is the original energy source renewable (i.e. wind or coal). 2nd Is it sustainable (i.e. it can been maintained w/out causing severe ecological damage).
Rachel Crabtree
Rachel Crabtree 6 years ago
There is a finite amount. The original source of most fossil fuels is left over plant and animals remains, which took millions of years to convert into the fossil fuels we use now. That process can't be realistically reproduced any time soon. Please research "peak oil production and reserves" to find out more. Make sure to search for scientifically valid, peer reviewed, and nonpartisan funded studies for trustworthy information.

Great! Share as you like :) Also, I'm finishing an interactive multimedia Flash program for kids regarding renewable energy. If you would like a link to the program, please let me know! Should be complete & polished for public viewing by the end of the month. Also a lot of my renewable energy stuff is on my online portfolio - if it helps I'll put the portfolio link in the video description for you to take a look, share, and/or grab resources :D

Rachel Crabtree

Try adding to the end of your answer the type of resource that is using the chemical energy source and define whether it's nonrenewable or renewable. For example, the sun initially uses a chemical energy source and solar is considered renewable. Whereas, fossil fuel burning power plants use a chemical energy source, but they are nonrenewable.
Rachel Crabtree
Rachel Crabtree 6 years ago
Sounds like you answered a resource question with an energy source. There is a difference between resources (methods that transform energy to something usable - like a powerplant) and energy sources (these are the initial energy sources like sound energy). There are both nonrenewable and renewable resources that use chemical energy sources.
