Alright, so you don't have to be an official greenie to read this or to follow anything on this page, you can also be a greenie in training! It's been said since the 1980s and even earlier on that there was a huge hole forming in the ozone from things like methane gases from garbage dumps, animals becoming extinct because of littering, and polar ice caps melting and collapsing piece by piece because of the rising temperatures. Isn't it about time we start saving the place we live in, rather than hurting it even more?
You can easily find ways online, to start participating in this process, as well as find tons of information on energy saving tips by using solar and wind generated energy. A few years ago these processes were absolutely unheard of. But through meticulous research and testing, people have finally figured out how we can use solar and wind energy to our advantages. One of the main things you might want to look for online are e-books! These types of informational guides include all sorts of interesting information on how to reduce energy costs, and help reduce the amount of energy that is used as well.
Let's take a look at some stats. There are over 7 billion people on earth, granted a lot of these people don't have electricity or tons of technology so lets just look at Americans for now. In 2007 the World Library Fact book stated that there were an estimated 301,139,947 people living in the United States. Now most of us know how we live. I'm not even super-techy and I have a ton of gadgets, electronics, and other things that use energy. I know I use up my fair of energy, and I can be as green as I wanna seem, but wasting energy is one of the biggest threats to our society. I'm sure we have all heard of the Energy Crisis by now? Its one of the reasons gas is so darn expensive nowadays!
For those you who don't know exactly what this is; An energy crisis is any great price rise in the supply of energy resources to an economy (such as gas). It usually refers to the shortage of oil and additionally to electricity or other natural resources. An energy crisis may be referred to as an oil crisis, petroleum crisis, energy shortage, electricity shortage or electricity crisis. A major crack in the infrastructure is brought on by over consumption.
So how can we, as Americans, reduce the amount of energy we are wasting? Well, as stated in the beginning of this article, one way is to use solar power and wind power. I know this is going to sound stupid but just to make a very bold point; Sun doesn't cost money and it doesn't eat up energy, Wind doesn't cost money and it doesn't eat up energy. Makes sense right? That's about as far in as I'll go to try to explain things because from there it can get a little confusing which is one of the main reasons you should take a look at some of the e-books listed below:
Earth 4 Energy - A complete step-by-step guide. This guide will give you steps on how to build your own DIY solar and wind powered generators and it's as easy as 1-2-3! This book contains some really terrific additions to make it easy to understand and comprehend, such as step-by-step instructions and illustrations!
Make Natural Power - A great All-In-One guide. This book has been chosen among many "green" friendly websites as the number 2 choice of all the books available out there (earth 4 energy being number 1). This is another easy to follow guide on how to build your own renewable energy resources.
Home Made Energy - Easy step-by-step methods. Bill Ford is the author of this book and he will teach you a plan that he came up with on how to beat the energy companies at their own dirty games. These energy systems can be implemented into anyone's home for just a few dollars.
You can also find many other books available online, some of these e-books are free, some are not. In my experience even if you spend a few bucks on the e-books it usually means they are of higher quality than the ones you might find everyone rummaging around in for free. The books above are well worth the few bucks you might spend on them!
