It's Time To End Deforestation

our solution is using renewable energy

Save the Rainforest!

Wind turbines

Burning trees to provide electricity/fuel is harming the Earth by producing more carbon pollution. Windmills/turbines harvest the wind to create energy. The energy is renewable so it can never run out. It also prevents many trees from being cut down. Opperation costs for running the wind turbines are also low. Though installing them requires a lot of labor. The only down side to windmills is the fact that they dangerous to incoming birds who may run into the propeller and lose their life. Wind energy is also not always reliable because wind patterns are constantly changing.

Costs For Wind Turbines In a major city

The cost for a higher energy generating utility scale wind turbine ranges from $3-$4 million. You can see that these turbines can be pricey, but they are also very effective. If the government is interested in investing in wind energy for a major city like New York, they would need approximately.

Solar Panals

The massive scale of cutting down trees is due to the lack of power. Trees are used to produce energy. Another possible solution is solar panels. Solar panels use the Sun's rays to produce energy. Solor energy is renewable so you'll never run out. Solar panels also reduces your electricity bill! The cost is usually $7-9 per watt. At the Home Depot it is $1,200 per 260 watt panel. You can reduce your electricity bill by 65%! Solar panels are not only good for the enviroment they are good for your bank account.

Pros and cons of using solar panels and wind turbines

Wind turbines use the wind to create energy. Wind turbines run without creating pollution, operational costs are low, and its renewable energy. Wind is constantly changing, turbines can interfere with bird migrations and it takes time and labor to install. Solar pamels use renewable energy, reduces electricity bill, and are environmentally friendly. They are expensive, and associated with pollution.
