The quest to find an alternative energy resource that is in accordance with history and latest trend in technology has paved the way for humans to look after the environment and to preserve the natural resources. An alternative energy resource is wind power. This is not a new discovery but overtime it took a fresh and better tactic. History will reveal that hundreds of years ago, windmills were already use in Europe in wind farms with wind turbines in order to gain as much as wind energy as possible. This is an effective method in producing the maximum wind energy; however, there are pros and cons that one has to be aware with in this kind of alternative source of energy.


Introduction Missouri produces wind energy coming from more than 2,500 square miles land that the state use as 63% portion of electricity. Windmills are producer of clean energy; however worn-out windmills produce otherwise. One hazardous element of wind turbines is carbon fiber composite. When wind turbine is worn-out, it has to be burned and trashed out, a process that is perilous to the atmosphere. This wind turbine replacement is necessary. One material of wind turbine is thermoset plastic; this usually creates the wind turbines’ strength and low weight requirement. A breakage from this wind turbine might destroy houses and buildings nearby and pieces of the blade might be scattered meters away. Wind power accidents are much common compared to nuclear accidents. Recorded in 2008 were casualties of 16 civilians and 41 workers—a continuously increasing number. During high winds, the turbines should be stopped and the rotation should be stopped in order to reduce this staggering figure of casualties. Moreover, a regular check-up on these wind turbines should be made in order to prevent bugs build-up and the wearing of the blades because if not 2030% is estimate product loss. According to O’Sullivan, 2011, money is an important element in maintaining the quality of blades in order to maintain the wind power. Wind Power: The Pros There are many pros of wind power as a renewable resource of energy. It is estimated that wind turbines can usually generate 500 kilowatts of power that can lessen the carbon dioxide emission by approximately tw

GLG 220 Week 5 Individual Questions


For more classes visit www.snaptutorial.com GLG 220 Week 5 Individual Questions Prepare a response to Critical and Creative Thinking Questions 1–5 in Ch. 15 of Visualizing Geology. Provide an explanation in your responses.

Oil production in the United States satisfies only half of the country's needs; the rest is imported. If imports were cut off, what changes would you expect to occur in your lifestyle? If you are interested in controversies, investigate how geophysicist M. King Hubbert predicted in 1956 that annual U.S. oil production would peak in the early 1970s (the actual peak occurred in 1971). Also, investigate the debate over whether the same predictive technique can be applied to world oil supplies. When do you think world oil production will reach its peak—or has it done so already? Can you offer an explanation for this remarkable concentration? If you were part of a team of exploration geologists looking for large copper deposits, where would you focus your search? Given that we are now dependent on nonrenewable resources of energy and minerals, and that the world's population continues to increase, how do you think human societies will adjust in the future? Do we have a resource problem or a population problem (or both)?


Some people think that sustainable development is not a useful concept, because it may be impossible to implement—or even to define—in the case of nonrenewable resources. Others think that it is an extremely important concept, if only because it makes us think about the needs of future generations in planning resource management. What do you think?
