1 Alternative energy on Thu Jan 28, 2010 9:28 am

Our world is being terribly affected by global warming. We need to quickly find lasting solution to slow it down. Two alternative my country uses are wind energy and biomass to produce its energy. Other countries don’t necessarily have to use biomass and wind energy. There are a lot of alternative energy sources like Geothermal, Hydroelectricity, Solar energy, Tidal power, Wave power. If more countries used wind energy and biomass for energy production, have many wind mills think about how much emission would be reduced. What do you think?

2 Oil companies are the problem - ENVSouthKorea on Thu Jan 28, 2010 8:29 pm

Well the wind energy is an alternatve energy. However windmills are quite expensive and sometime it is hard to get a wind. I read that geothermal energy has been found as the cheapest alternative energy that we can replace it with the fossil fuel that the world is using currently.This geo thermal is also can be used anywhere because of the temperature that exist insid ethe earth's crust. But the problem is that the oil companies do not allow them to be prospered because obviously they will loose their job. Thus, the main problem that we need to solve first is what are we going to do to those oil companies more than just windmills

Also wind farms take up a lot of space and a lot of people complain that they ruin the view

4 Too expensive on Sat Feb 06, 2010 10:19 am

The delegate of South Africa believes that some MEDCs and LEDCs do not have access to the wealth to build and develop geothermal, solar and wind energy. Although the energy is cheap and clean when constructed and when used. Unless, these countries recieve some sort of aid, to construct more advanced alternate energy source, these countries will continue to use cheap and dirty fossil fuels. afro

5 Use of wind energy on Sat Feb 06, 2010 8:32 pm

The delegate of Estonia agrees that wind turbines are expensive and destroy the view, but its not as bad as the air pollution in China where people and drivers have a hard time seeing where they're going. I have some suggestions in my resolution of ways we can make the expense of wind turbines not as big of a problem.

Very true that there are many issues facing the implementation of sustainable energy. These are often cheap to maintain but very very expansive to start up.

Geothermal energy is actually really expansive because of the need to drill really deep down to attain the energy. Because of this, it is not a very profitable form of energy.

But how can we discourage the use of fossil fuels? How exactly can we reduce the use of fossil fuels, keeping in mind the economical and ecological repercussions?

Would delegates like to post ideas and we can discuss them here?

Kudos to those who have posted! Very Happy

7 What are you people on about? on Fri Feb 26, 2010 12:40 pm

Replying to those who say that wind turbines are ruining the view, im sure you would still say that when the world runs out of energy. Yes, they may be expensive, but what's so bad about ruining the view?
