Today, the emphasis
seems to be concentrating on the Environment and the way in which all
organisations and individuals can do their bit to protect the planet.
Now that the saga of
the BP oil leak is beginning to fade and vehicle manufacturers are
producing more hybrid and electric cars, it seems that our long
dependence on oil may be waning.
If manufacturers can
produce a truly carbon neutral car then we will be well on the way to
finishing our reliance on fossil fuels.
fuel, which had so much promise has backfired in converting food
producing areas into bio fuel production. It would be disastrous if we
generate hectares of bio fuel crops and create food shortages.
Some of the energy
producing efforts which include wind, wave and solar power have the
potential to supplement our power generation but will never be able to
replace our conventional power stations.
Nuclear power is a
good option but is feared by many people.
Today I read about a
proposal to use geothermal energy from deep wells bored into granite
which would provide enough energy to power 5 million homes and also
provide hot water to nearby dwellings.
