What Happen If We Completely Ran Out Of Fossil Fuels?
What Happen If We Completely Ran Out Of Fossil Fuels? You ever heard about SOLAR ENERGY? Obviously you have heard about it! Sun is the only source which is known to be an infinite source of energy. When we look around ourselves there are plenty of articles and speeches and advertisements which tells us that we don’t have enough fossil fuel left.
What will Happen If We Completely Ran Out Of Fossil Fuels
First of all, that will take more than 200 years if we use fuels at the ongoing rate.
So, what after 200 years?
Do we have to use the same cart our grandfather used for traveling? How electricity will be produced? In less than 5 minutes we all go back to the BC time. And definitely it will cause MASS DESTRUCTION
How we can prevent this?
Sun is the answer to all the questions. A research tells us that the sun sends more energy to the earth in one hour than the whole planet needs in an year. Isn’t that interesting? Imagine if we could capture that energy directly and convert it to a form that could power our cities, homes, and cars! Then we do not need any fossil fuel to live the life, solar power can replace fossil fuel.
A research may have tell us that This is possible but we can observe this phenomenon our self also. We all know that trees and plants need sun light to make their own food. And that process which helps them to make food is called photosynthesis. During photosynthesis a very large amount of energy is required. That is why no one is capable to create an apple without apple tree. Is requires so much energy that it will power the earth for many years. And yes photosynthesis is the process which cannot be done in laboratories because we need so much energy to do that.
How we are using sun then?
Photo-voltaic (PV) cells, also called solar cells, to convert sunlight directly into electricity (‘photo-voltaic’ essentially means ‘light electricity’). PV cells use a material such as silicon to absorb energy from sunlight. The sunlight energy causes some electrons to break free from the silicon atoms in the cell. Some complicated but important processes take place then electricity is generated.
PV cells today are still only able to capture a small fraction of the sun’s energy, so acres of them are necessary to collect enough light to create electricity on a large scale. A lot more scientific work needs to be done to make them more efficient and take up less space. Despite the challenges, solar panels are used to power many things such as emergency signs, school crossing lights, and more. Many people are also able to power their homes by mounting solar panels on the roof, and this will only get easier as the technology continues to advance.
Lets just hope someday our space shuttles and rockets will use solar energy for power! And yes, sun is very important (star boy 😉 )
