Drilling for oils is one of the major extractive industries. Crude oil is a complex mixture of thousands of different organic molecules, mainly hydrocarbons (aromatics, alkenes and cyclohexanes). It is refined by the process of fractional distillation to yield a number of commercially important products such as petrol, diesel oil and tar. From these different types of oil, seas and rivers are being polluted regularly. Sometime accidental spillage from oil tankers causes drastic damage to the environment through oil pollution. All types of aquatic forms of life thus face the ill-effects.
I am looking into solar energy because my electric bills are so high. I would like to know about 8775 the grid 8776 . When we collect the energy from the sun where does it go? How are we credited for the amount we save and the amount we use?
But man, as the most intelligent animal , never stopped being inquisitive, nor was he content with the bounties of nature. His quest for knowledge and search for security succeeded in exploring newer and wider avenues of mysteries that remained baffling so long. Man’s excursions into the darkest regions of mysteries laid foundations for the stupendous civilization, for the conquests of men had ensured their domination in their world and gave them a key to control all the forces in nature.
Energy storage systems such as batteries will help smoothen out demand and load, making solar power more stable, but these technologies are also expensive.
I just had them installed 7-8 monthd ago. Now I am starting to wonder if it was worth it. The amount you pay for the monthly solar panel bills. Then also You will still have to pay your electric bill. Of course it matters on how much you use at night when your back on electric, also when the sun 8767 s behind the clouds. So both my bill 8767 s combined only give me maybe a 55-65$ saving 8767 s. Sometimes not even that.
The environmental pollution is not caused by the fall-out from nuclear tests or industries alone. The smoke left behind the automobiles and other vehicular traffic, the increasing use of synthetic detergents, nitrogen fertilizers and insecticides contaminate both air and water.
Fluoride and Arsenic pollutants are important amongst the inorganic pollutants. Vast areas of Haryana, Rajasthan and Punjab are highly contaminated with fluoride compounds in potable water. There the amount of fluoride present in water is very high above the danger level. Flow of waste products from glass industry, hydrocarbon producing industry etc. carrying high amounts of fluoride compounds, polluted water bodies there. In Rajasthan thousands and thousands of people became disabled due to fluorosis or fluoride pollution. Fluorine is responsible for the decay and damage of calcium of Teeth and bones. This disease is termed as 8775 Fluorosis 8776 .
The World Health Organization defines air pollution as 8775 the presence of materials in the air in such concentration which are harmful to man and his environment. 8776
(ii) Smog is a dark or opaque fog which is formed by the dust and smoke particles causing condensation of water vapours around them as well as attracting chemicals like SO 7 , H 7 S, NO 7 , etc. Smog harms plant life through glazing and necrosis besides reduced availability of light. In human beings and animals it produces respiratory troubles.
The birth of mills and factories is the result of the growth of industry in this machine-predominated age. As long as they will be there, they must emit smoke, pollute the air and hasten our end by slow-poisoning.
All the Indian rivers, including the holy river Ganga, have become highly polluted today. Even, the Ganga Action Plan to control its water from pollution has not been proved successful. The impact of water pollution is widespread. It causes many severe water-borne diseases, such as diarrhea, trachoma, intestinal norms, hepatitis, jaundice, etc.
Broadly speaking, solar energy is a term for describing a range of methods for obtaining energy from the sun. For instance, wind, biomass and hydropower are all forms of solar energy.
