Renewable Energy DVD
As fossil fuels become more scarce and expensive, there is greater emphasis on finding renewable resources. What is being done to harness natural power and potential? Can any emerging technology be utilized on a wide scale in the near future? Explore thes
- Which politicians are trying to spearhead renewable resource development and implementation?
- What can replace oil and other fossil fuels?
- See experimental and well-tested methods for harnessing renewable power.
Oil is becoming more expensive and more scarce. Its diminishing quantity affects millions on a personal and industrial level. Without oil and other fossil fuels many industries will shut down completely. What can be done?
MODERN MARVELS® speaks with the men and women that are attempting to answer that question. Rather than looking at other finite resources, there is new emphasis on researching renewable power sources. These resources are not only readily available, but cause less damage to the environment than their fossil counterparts.
Discover how air, water, and fire are being harnessed. See what is happening with solar, geothermal, and tidal power. From tried-and-true methods to those in the experimental stage, discover which ones may be utilized on a mass scale in the near future. Meet the scientists, politicians, and engineers that are at the forefront of research, development, and implementation. Learn what may be in store for the rest of the 21st Century.
Environmental Tech DVD
