Global Warming, Global Warming, Global Warming.
The most burning topic of scholars nowadays, every body is talking about facts, data, stats, etc. but nobody is talking about solutions.
Developed Nations point of view : New emerging or so called third world countries (developing countries) causing maximum imbalance in nature.
3rd world’s point of view : Developed countries has already did their part in last century in industrial revolution period and now pushing the cause on emerging nations.
Well, to be honest both of the perspectives are absolutely correct.
3rd world needs space to be called developed world but all of the space is occupied by developed world. To be honest time is not good for all this now.
Time is for change. According to data from the World Meteorological Organization, carbon emissions increased by their fastest rate in 30 years in 2013. Greenhouse gasses are 142 percent higher than they were before the Industrial Revolution, and experts are now certain that human activity is contributing to global warming.
Their are many technologies to stop all this but these technical equipments are too much costly for developed nations to afford how could we ask developing countries to invest in it.
Many people are waking up to the fact that working toward a healthy and sustainable future is something we all have to commit to if we want to save the planet. As technologies are honed, more people will have access to clean energy from the sun and other renewable sources. The advancements in biomass are exciting, and we, as a society, have more reason than ever to hope for a great tomorrow.
What are Biomass Fuels?
When something burns, its energy releases in the form of heat. When the wood in a campfire burns, the campers utilize that heat. This is an energy transfer, which can be harnessed in a variety of ways. Scrap lumber from the construction, timber, paper, and demolition industries are common sources of biomass fuels, but other organic materials or crops, such as corn, hemp, soy, cow manure, and some types of waste are also being utilized. Unlike fossil fuels, which will eventually be used up, these fuel sources can be renewed. In doing so, we also create jobs and boost the economy. There are currently 142,000 jobs in the solar industry, and experts believe this number will continue to rise. In 2013, the industry grew 41 percent, its greatest expansion yet.
Biomass power plants burn the fuels to create heat that runs steam-powered turbines. Unfortunately, as of now, these plants are still less efficient than those that utilize fossil fuels. As the technologies continue to improve, biomass fuels will be capable of creating more power and possibly even surpassing petroleum in efficiency. In 2010, the biomass industry produced carbon-neutral electricity that accounted for about 4 percent of the energy requirement in the United States. The solar and biomass industries are working hard to increase that figure, and the market is showing a demand for it.
What are the Benefits of Biomass Fuels?
Cutting down on emissions and protecting the quality of the air.
Reducing global warming.
Making use of waste that would have been burned or put in a landfill.
Protecting forest by removing branches or fallen debris that could block trails or lead to forest fires.
Offering essentially limitless potential for growth, as technologies are always developing.
Allowing for the creation of a wide variety of products.
Are There Any Negatives to Biomass Fuels?
The biomass industry faces many challenges. Making use of waste is a wonderful thing, but creating biofuels from scratch requires additional resources, such as land, other types of fuel, water, and time. Certain biofuels, such as manure, create methane gas, which damages the ozone layer as much as fossil fuels. However, these fuel sources are still worth exploring because of their sustainability.
Research is ongoing, and future technologies could solve many of these problems. It will most likely be discovered that certain biomass fuels will be better utilized in different areas, with factors like the local economy, industry, and environment coming into play.
