Why We Must Develop Renewable Energy

All it takes is one look outside your window to see some of the damage that we have inflicted upon our environment. If you live in a city, you can see cars clogging the streets, emitting dangerous exhaust fumes that threaten our every weakening ozone layer, you can hear the noise of the vehicles and of factories and companies in the distance. There are not many places anymore in the United States that are quiet and unspoiled by some form of pollution. Sadly,those areas are growing smaller each and every year. Luckily, the green movement has come along just in time, and we may have a chance of saving the earth after all.

If you have a car, just think about how much fuel you are burning each and every time you take a trip to the grocery store, think about how much pollutants are coming from your car, and then think about how many millions of cars are on the road each and every day. The amount of pollution coming from that is hard to imagine, yet we have cities in this country that are constantly choked by a heavy blanket of smog. So what if you could run your car on fuel that didn’t pollute the environment every place you went, would you want to try it? If you said yes, you are definitely not alone. More and more people each year are looking for ways to get out from under the oil companies while also reducing their carbon footprint. While it may not be very feasible to do right now, various forms of alternative and renewable energy are being adapted to make them more available to average consumers.

For example, hydro power has long been a favorite of environmentalists, and it continues to be developed and tested today. We are very close to seeing cars that actually run on water, and produce exhaust that is nothing but water vapor. Can you imagine stopping at a water station instead of a gas station to fill your tank up? Or keeping a few gallons of water in the trunk just in case your fuel runs a little low? You certainly can’t easily do that when your car runs on gasoline! There would be no more fumes to get sick on, no more dealing with flammable liquids, and no more accidental gas station fires caused by static electricity. However, the best part of all is that water is easily and cheaply replenished!
