Renewable Sources Of Energy

Countries of the world rely heavily on petroleum, coal and nature gas for their energy sources. There arr two major types of energy sources: renewable and non-renewable. Hydro-carbon or fossil fuels are non-renewable sources of energy. Reliance on them poses real big problems. First, fossil fuels such as oil. Coal, gas etc, are finite energy resources and rhe world eventually wil run out of them. Secondly, they become too expensive in the coming decades and too damaging for the environment causing global warming. In contrast, renwable energy sources such as, wind and solar energy are constantly and natirally replenished and never run out. Most renewable energy comes either directly or indirectly from the sum. Sunlight or solar energy can be sued for heating lighting homes, for generating electricity and for other commerical and industrial uses. The sun's heat drives the wind and this wind energy can be captured with wind turbing to produce electricity. Then the wind and the su…

key word: endeavor, supersonic, speed, revolution, aviation, ads, website, neither, ground (v), sky's the limit.Human beings conquered the distance on earth by discovering wheels.

That was human being's first real take-off. And now, they have got a supersonic speed. In a supersonic speed, something travels faster than sound! So the sky's the limit now!Modern aircraft companies are making revolutions in aviationTechnology. Boeing as well as Airbus is producing modern passenger airplanes. These planes fly very fast. Boeing 787 flies 950 km/h. However, Airbus 350 is expected to fly in a couple of years. Its speed will be 950 km/h.You find attractive Ads on…
