Green Energy: The Best Way to Help the Earth
The Benefits of Green Energy
There is an unlimited amount of wind and sunlight so as we use it to create electricity, it naturally replenishes. Coming from the compressed remains of living organism from before the age of dinosaurs, fossil fuels also occur naturally but do not replenish nearly as rapidly as clean energy sources. Fossil fuels take millions of years to heat and compress into coal, oil and natural gas while green energy only needs to wait until sunrise or the next gust of wind.
Reduce Dependence on Fossil Fuels
With every year we use more energy and use more fossil fuels. Not only are there limited quantities left, but coal, oil, and natural gas all produce harmful carbon emissions when burned that damage the earth. Dependence on these crude energy sources is unsustainable and harmful to our planet.
No Harmful Waste
Using green energy contributes to a better earth. Neither solar power nor wind power produces harmful gases or waste when harnessing natural resources. Fossil fuels produce carbon gases that destroy our atmosphere and nuclear power produces radioactive waste that destroys neighboring ecosystems.
Using Green Energy Helps It Grow
The best part of using green energy is when you use it, you invest in its future. When you pay your energy bill, our energy providers take that money to create and grow the renewable energy industry. As more people use green energy, the industry gets bigger and advances, and we become less dependent on fossil fuels.
