PB : Is electricity a form of progress for us?

  1. Firstly, we brun coal to produce thermal energy. In the boiler after that the water transforms its self into steam and rises next the steam makes the turbine turn, which makes copper coil rotate inside the magnet in the generator, which produce alternating current to power homes.

  1. The green house gases CO2 absorbe heat. Today There are many people emit CO2, and when we burn petrol in car engines, we emit CO2 too. The temperature is increasing so the ice bergs are meeting in greenland and the north and the south poles. The level of sea/ocean is rising, so there are floods.
  1. Firstly, the wind turns the blades, wich rotate the shaft, which is connect to the gars which accelerate the rotation of the shaft and finally generale electricity. The weather vane detects the direction of the wind and orientated the blades to capture the most wind power.
  1. London Array is an article from a newspaper (a wind farm in the sea)                                         It’s an enormos project which is situaded in the middle of the sea hear town of the ramsgate in the south east of england, not far away form london.

However, after the london array project started, the people in ramsgate we happy because the employed of the offshore wind farm project spend money in the hotels restaurants and pubs of the town. The fisherman disapprove the project because is complicated to fish since wind farm. The probleme is visibility because of the mist at sea we can use radar on the boats to detect obstacles and to warm the captain with an alarm.
