Can the world sustain our increasing dependency over electricity?

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Can the world sustain our increasing dependency over electricity? Word Count: 675 Electricity is the means through which all the equipments we use operate. Though there are many sources of energy, almost all the equipments in use today need them to be converted to electrical energy before use. Electricity allows modern appliances and more convenience in our life. It has made life easier and quicker for us. Our current lifestyle is totally dependent on electricity so much so that our life would literally go to waste had there been no electricity. However, our increasing dependency over electricity has led us to such a condition that the world cannot sustain our demands. From the moment we wake up to the moment we sleep, whatever we do is directly related to electricity. A morning shower needs electricity to heat the water and without hot water, shower in the winter morning is almost impossible, well at least we have made it impossible for ourselves. ...read more.

Middle

In fact all the fossil fuels and petroleum products are non renewable. Thus, in time these will be used up and going by our increasing electricity and petroleum demands the time will come soon, probably in around 30 years. So what should we do to enable us to sustain our increasing dependency over electricity? Not using electricity at all is not a viable option. We have to develop alternative ways of generating electricity. We can also cut the use of electricity by using it only when needed. But this is not going to solve our problem of diminishing energy resources. Cutting the use can certainly reduce pollution and global warming but in time, probably 5 to 10 years later than the predicted 30 years time, the resources are going to be used up. Thus the need of the hour is certainly to develop and use alternative sources of energy. ...read more.

Conclusion

Summing up, the world cannot sustain our increasing electricity demands if alternative sources of energy are not researched and utilised. The leaders of the world must get their head straight and think not just about increasing nuclear arsenal. They must put all their effort into making a greener earth and ensure that our future generations' energy demands are fulfilled.
