Humans use electricity daily for important reasons that help them survive. Electricity has a big impact on the world. For instance, electricity has many affects on the environment when it is generated in Canada. Also, since electricity provides us with heating, power etc. we need to conserve it the best that we can because not all energies are renewable and energy supplies electricity. Electricity can be very dangerous and life threatening at times, which is why we must remember to be cautious when interacting with it because then we will know when to be aware at times. There are many different forms of energy and one of them is static electricity, by learning more about static electricity it will provide us with more knowledge about electricity and then soon we will know all about it. There are many different forms of electricity out there and all of them are created from energies, that means the more we find out about electricity and it’s resources we will become more curious about things and will want to learn all about them. Electricity is valuable in our lives and should be conserved more often, even a simple action such as switching off a light when leaving a room will reduce electricity consumption because that action will not only save electricity but will save money. So remember that one little action will help conserve electricity!
The long-term effects of the different ways electricity can be generated in Canada
Generating electricity in Canada has a huge impact on the environment and everything within it. Every time humans use electricity more of it is created to replace the used electricity. There are many different types of energies in our world and all of them effect the environment and living things, which inhabit it. First of all, in order for electricity to be generated it has to be transformed from energy. Hydro, thermal and nuclear are the most common energies to be used for electricity. Even though, hydro-power is a natural energy that comes from nature it still has harmful effects on the environment. For instance, damming rivers, lakes or streams impacts the environment around these bodies of water because damming them raises the sea level, which causes flooding. Long-term effects include forests, agriculture and ecosystems being flooded, animals being drowned because of flooding and people relocating because of flooding. The long-term effects of generating thermal power into electricity include large amounts of air pollution, acid rain and global warming. The long-term effects of generating nuclear power into electricity include damage to lakes and rivers, damage to ecosystems and habitats and exposure to radiation from uranium that can kill living things.
There are also other energies that are used for creating electricity. The long-term effects of generating solar energy into electricity include life-cycle global warming emissions. The long-term effects of generating geothermal energy into electricity include air...
