Renewable energy comes from things that won’t run out — wind, water, sunlight, plants, and more. These are things we can reuse over and over again. ‘Non-renewable energy comes from things that will run out one day — oil, coal, natural gas, and uranium.’
Detaljno ruši jedan po jedan ‘obnovljiv’ izvor energije dobrim argumentima:
Sunčana i geotermalna energija, vjetar, biomasa i hidrosnaga.
All of these technologies also require electricity transmission from rural areas to population centers. Wilderness is not renewable once roads and power-line corridors fragment it. And while proponents would have you believe that a renewable energy project churns out free electricity forever, the life expectancy of a solar panel or wind turbine is actually shorter than that of a conventional power plant. Even dams are typically designed to last only about 50 years. So what, exactly, makes renewable energy different from coal, oil, natural gas, and nuclear power?
Kako sada stvari stoje, potraga za čistom i zelenom energijom još traje.
