  1. Nowadays the concerns about the environment are very present in the minds of more and more people. Maybe because of the huge amount of information that circles on the internet in site and blogs like this one, because they saw it on the TV, or because they have already suffered from some of the effects of climate change: floods, extreme drought, heavy snow storms, etc. Some of the solutions presented to prevent or decrease the effects of global warming are, as we all know: Drive you car less times, use public transports, shutdown all electric devises when they are not in use, recycle etc.

If this was

The number of species that become extinct every day is so big that some will be extinct before we even discover them. Recently some leading scientists said that the global warming consequences are very unlikely to be avoided; this means that even if we stopped CO2 emissions today we would almost certainly suffer the consequences of global warming anyway. And this is only our fault; we are the ones that deserve to be punished. Now it’s time to change our lifestyle, change the

The income from REC's goes towards either supporting existing wind turbi
