Explain why and how in your opinion renewable energy/ wind energy can be achieved, or why you think it is impossible?
The development of nations around the world has led to an increase in the temperature in the ozone due to emissions from the various factories around the globe. The climatic conditions have changed with time due to the emission of carbon dioxide and other toxic gases into the environment. In my opinion, the need for renewable energy is very urgent to save our habitat from destruction. Continual use of fossil fuels across the globe have been gravely detrimental to the environment. The fossil fuels are categorized under non-renewable energy source, and they include petroleum among others.
However, I will focus on renewable sources. These are unlimited resources which are natural and is replenished within a very short duration. The renewable sources of energy include solar power, wind turbine, geothermal, biomass and ocean energy among others. These sources provide clean energy for daily consumption and reduce the effect of global warming and environmental degradation.
Focusing on wind energy, I believe that the production of wind energy is possible and it can be actualized. Wind energy has been used for more than 3000 years in the production of mechanical power for pumping water as well as grinding of grains (Manwell et al.) (). Due to the effects of global warming, various nations have put into place policies that would enable setting up wind energy production systems. Despite the fluctuation of wind speed, it’s the most viable green energy production method that needs to be embraced in the world. Areas which experience strong winds for example arid and semi-arid regions are feasible for the production of wind energy. I believe that with proper policies regarding renewable energy production, wind energy production is achievable and will be able to help in the production of clean energy.
