Two Thoughts on Global Warming
Two thoughts on global warming:
1. Wind Energy. Wind turbines, which convert wind into energy, are hailed as a way of generating energy without harming the environment.
But I think we need that wind. I’m afraid we’re going to discover in ten or twenty or fifty years that the wind was part of the global ecosystem.
After putting a massive wind farm in, say, one of the plain states, will we have rain systems that no longer make their way across the country and instead stay put, causing massive flooding in the middle of the country and drought in the east?
2. Energy and Heat. Two of the biggest challenges facing us seem to be (a) not enough energy, and (b) the warming of the planet.
But heat is energy.
Can’t we solve both of these problems at the same time by using the extra heat on the planet for energy?
