Green Technology
In today’s world we keep looking for ways to save the planet and try and keep the air we breathe as clean as possible. As time evolve the technology gets better in methods and materials to generating energy to non-toxic items. Going green is in many different areas of life’s needs from cleaning supplies, energy sources, and fuel alternative. When I ride down the streets and see cars polluting the air with the smoke or even seeing plastic bottles just on the ground, I often ask myself why must their be some many people that don’t care for the place they resident. Cleaning supplies can sometime be a very bad think if not properly used. When cleaning up I know I am very guilty of mixing different cleaning supplying better known as mixing chemicals. The non-toxic cleaning supplies are much safer to your health because all this harsh chemicals that burns you nose. There have been many different forms of development when it comes to renewable energy better known as reusable energy that come natural resources. There has been development of the sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal heat because they are naturally replenished at a constant rate. [] The sun can be used to generate heat in order to create energy. This is done with the help of these solar panels with the combination of bright light and radiant heat. Direct sunlight is the key because when the clouds block it causes diffused light. Solar technologies are broadly characterized as either passive solar or active solar depending on the way they capture, convert and distribute solar energy. Active solar techniques include the use of photovoltaic panels and solar thermal collectors to harness the energy. Passive solar techniques include orienting a building to the Sun, selecting materials with favorable thermal mass or light dispersing properties, and designing spaces that naturally circulate...
