Time For Change 400 watt solar panel
This mornings news on the Gulf disaster is now reporting that oxygen levels in parts of the oil poisoned waters are 30% lower than normal and let us keep in mind that this is just the beginning. This problem is only going to get worse with those on capital hill embroiled in their own finger pointing sessions while a seemingly inept British Petroleum feabily struggles with a solution that will put an end to this devastating problem 400 watt solar panel. The use of these oil dispersants in such large quantities has never been attempted and even the EPA has no idea what long term effects they may cause on water quality or fish stocks in the gulf. Even if they could plug or syphen off the thousands of barrels of oil that are pouring into the once pristine waters every day the long term effects of these dispersants which keep the oil at the bottom of the gulf are yet to be seen.
Oil rig platforms
The very idea that companies like British Petroleum who thought they had these oil rig platforms in control given the history of colosal failures in human history’s attempts is yet another in a long list of those who failed to realize that this sort of control is but a mere illusion. Even worse is the governments acceptance that they knew what they were doing, would be true to their word, and would keep our coastal waters safe from such a disaster. Something as simple as making sure that any system which depended on a battery backup for power had a fully charged battery at all times does not seem all that complicated yet it was this very thing amongst others that these people blatantly did not correct in a timely fashion. The ecologists who screamed “NO” when the entire idea of drilling in the Gulf of Mexico first was tabled by the oil companies have been made right in their fears of a disaster that would devastate not only the waters and wildlife but our own fishing industries and tourism throughout the gulf coast states.
It’s time for serious change! When our dependence on oil has grown to the point where we begin to grasp at that which is so obviously out of our technological reach to attain safely then it is time we all said “NO!” to the oil interests, and yes to renewable energies. By utilizing wind, 400 watt solar panel, geothermal, bio-mass and all the other sustainable energies that are currently available we can not only meet but exceed our solar energy world needs without killing entire ecosystems or falling prey to the speculators who drive up energy costs. Sure, becoming energy independent has it’s own personal costs most of which can be offset by the use of available incentives, grants and rebate programs but the end results are worth it. Accepting renewable energies as our preferred choice to power our homes and businesses will also drive our economy well into the 21st century providing not only the energy we will need but also the jobs that both present and future generations need.
These renewable energy systems do not pollute and in fact some of them such as bio-mass boilers actually use many forms of waste as their fuel in generating energy. Throughout the state of Wisconsin many dairy farmers have converted to bio-mass systems which are used to convert dairy cow wastes to energy that is not only used to power their farms and homes but the extra power is then net metered onto their local utility grids. This same net metering that allows power from virtually any renewable energy system to be placed onto electric utility grids can be used with wind turbine or photovoltaic 400 watt solar panel electric systems. In fact, the potential of net metering is such that if every home and business were currently using it nationwide our need for coal or gas fired power plants would be greatly diminished. Then we could use the natural gas otherwise used for power generation to power our vehicles thus diminishing our addiction to oil and our need to irresponsibly drill for it or buy it from other countries.
