Wind Power Versus Hydroelectric Power: Which is Better for the Environment?

- The energy produced and created by using the kinetic energy which comes from the wind naturally is known as the wind power. Wind power is the technology to catch the energy gained with movement, kinetic energy, and change this energy into electrical power which is useful in many places, such as households throughout the nation. Wind power can be produced by using a device called wind electric turbine. Several huge blades, about 30 feet long, are placed on each wind turbine. While wind passes through the blades, the wind with kinetic energy makes the blades to turn....   [tags: Environment, alternative energy, Renewable Energy]

An Analysis of Relation between Nature and Spirit in Ode to the West Wind

Poetry from Linda Thomas and Joan Didion on The Santa Ana Wind

- ... Brush Fire was written to shed a new light on the Santa Ana wind, and perhaps persuade newer residents of Southern California to have a more positive outlook on the winds. Both authors used syntax to help convey their purpose. Thomas and Didion both used simple and complex sentence structures interchangeably in different parts of their essays to make the audience react differently. When Didion explains the “unnatural stillness” of Los Angeles, implying that the winds are coming, she follows a long, descriptive sentence about the winds with a simple, powerful sentence explaining how the natives know the winds are coming; she simply states, “we know because we feel it.” This makes the rea...   [tags: fire, tone, imagery]

Is Renewable Energy an Economically Viable Option for South Africa?

- Is Renewable Energy an economically viable option for South Africa. South Africa mainly focuses on producing and making energy from mining coal. Although this is very effective and has been used for a very long time. The problem is that fossil fuels are limited because of the time needed to create them over millions of years and the tones of pressure that needs to be applied to form fossil fuels. The process in South Africa goes as follows, first deep mines are dug out to reach and get all the fossil fuels, which is a very big negative because of the high risk of injury and death cases, one of the other negatives is also that it has a large impact on the environment with all the unwanted dus...   [tags: wind turbines, fossil fuel]
