    Think Green!

      What does GREEN mean to you?

          Excellent question Alina although are you asking from a personal or business standpoint?

           

          I know from a personal standpoint I'm not the greenest of people, although I do support alternative energy such as wind, water, nuclear, etc.  I would say we need a lot more of it for it to actually help as (in the US).  Around 17% of our total energy use is "green" energy, and about 58% of the energy we create is lost from heat, transmission line resistance, and other forms.

           

          So I would say green would be encouraging the growth of more "green" power plants.  Prehaps smaller more numerous ones to cut down on transmission energy loss.

            What happens to the waste we all produce? When does it make sense to recycle? Can trash become energy?
