So you've heard that our planet's fossil fuel capacity is at near zero capacity and that everyone is scrambling to get their hands on any type of renewable energy available. From wind power to solar panels, a lot of people want to know the final solution to the energy crisis. Well, I'm no scientist but I do want an endless supply of electrical power because civilization depends on electricity. A world without electricity is chaos, so we should all do our part to make sure that our planet stays clean and green for our future generations.
It's not just with the energy crisis though. There's pollution everywhere and there are tons of garbage to dispose of completely. I don't know about you guys, but I think now is the best time for all of us to start working together for a way to stop pollution and save energy. This is the reason why our government is into supporting different ways to conserve energy and protect our environment from pollution.
Truth be told, a lot of researchers and scientists have already contributed different ways to help Mother Nature and preserve our planet's ecology. However, there are always a few screwballs who made up ridiculous ways to harness an unlimited amount of energy or perhaps, discover a new source of fossil fuel. Ridiculous as it is, some of these ideas have now been proven to actually work, thanks to modern science and technology. Let's review some of the best yet ridiculous green ideas that might actually work:
Steel and Plastic-made Picnic Tables - There was a time when some scientist actually proposed to change wooden picnic tables into steel or plastic; the reason was that every year, thousands of trees are cut for its wood. Wood is then converted into planks and plywood, so in order to help save the forests, he recommended the use of steel and recycled plastic when building furniture, such as chairs and picnic tables. Well, I guess this would work, if coupled by strict logging laws and tree-planting sessions.
Beer Fuel - For years, people believed that beer is only good as an alcoholid drink. Little did they know that beer can actually be used as a fuel for vehicles. One brilliant scientist from Germany made it all possible after experimenting with the remains of wheat and barley, which are the ingredients needed to make beer. The scientist says that in the future, vehicles will be powered by beer.
Converting Energy from Walking - Apparently, a high school project from a group of students in the Philippines were able to harness energy from a device that was installed on a shoe. Therefore, when the shoe is worn and used for walking, it was able to store enough energy for 2 AA batteries. It's certainly a major discovery, but in the past, people used to scoff at the very idea of energy generation through walking.
These are just some of the top ridiculous green ideas that might work in the near future. While things are starting to get interesting, we will have to wait for a few more years for new technological advances to occur. Who knows? Maybe one day, pollution will become extinct and you can drive a car with the power of organic trash.
