Request for funding to spread awareness about green energy Dr. , North America is blessed with an incredible energy endowment. However, the production, distribution and use of energy can have significant environmental impacts. The Proposal here is with proper funding, our team consisting of individuals who believe in green energy and are fully devoted to saving this planet, aims at spreading awareness about the pollution, its harmful effects and how much in danger our beloved planet earth is and also show them and make them aware how they can contribute as individuals and as a society to save planet earth by going green.
Our team is fully dedicated and plants to start the research on the 3 E’s of green energy; Energy Efficiency, Energy from renewable and Emission reduction. This research will include looking for ways how a business can change its energy consumption, how an individual can change his/her energy consumption and how society as a whole can make a difference. Later we will put our research together and market it to the businesses and society, this will make them aware of how they are harming the planet and how they can stop doing that and help save planet earth by going green.
People than will be more careful about polluting this planet and will contribute more towards saving our home planet earth. Background Each year in the U. S. industries dumps over 3 million tons of toxic chemicals into the land, air and water. But industries are not the only part of the problem of pollution. Pollution is caused by industrial and commercial waste, agriculture practices, everyday human activities and most notably, modes of transportation.
As shown in appendix 1 every year one American produces over 3285 pounds of hazardous waste and there are a total of 314,803,989 Americans (U.S. Census Bureau) dumping 517,065,551. 9325 tons of waste into land every year furthermore the emissions from all the vehicles in U. S. contribute 45% to global warming. Also Americans use over 2. 2 billion pounds of pesticides every year, which eventually washes into our rivers and lakes. Pollution not only affects the environment of this planet it also have many effects on human body. According to Health Canada some of the effects of pollution.
Cardio vascular illness . Water pollution * Cancer (Some kinds of cancer, like leukemia, can happen after drinking bad water for a long period of time) * Skin allergies Proposal Once the research starts the main focus will be on researching the 3 E’s of green energy 1. Energy Efficiency National Berkeley Laboratory defines Energy efficiency as “using less energy to provide the same service”. For example, when u change the windows in your house from regular glass to energy efficient window it helps to keep the heat inside in the winters thereby u save energy by reducing the use of heaters.
Energy efficiency does not mean not using the energy for example switching of the lights and not using them at all is an example of energy conservation and not energy efficiency. Energy efficiency means reducing the use of energy not stopping the use of energy. 2. Energy from Renewable Ministry of environment describes Renewable energy as “the energy derived from natural, sustainable sources like sun, wind, and water”. The energy from these sources is cleaner alternative to generating energy from traditional sources like coal and it does not leave any waste behind that might harm the environment in any way.
The most common example of Renewable energy is the solar water heaters; it is a water heating system that uses the energy produced from a solar panel instead of electricity to heat water in households. 3. Emission Reduction Emission reduction means reducing greenhouse gas emissions, mainly carbon dioxide, to prevent global warming. According to diagram 2 the main reasons for the emission of carbon dioxide is industries and vehicles. The emission from both the vehicles and from the industries can be controlled by using various emission reduction techniques.
After covering these three essential parts of green energy we will move on to more focused research; research based on how to make households more green and how to make businesses more green. Outcome In order to do all the research and actually make a difference in helping our dying planet, we need your assistance. Essentials to start of our research includes * Funding To start off our campaign the most essential requirement are the funds from your department. These funds will help us get started however the exact amount of the funds required is hard to say right now but we do have an approximate amount of $75,000 CAD.
These funds will get us an office space, incentives for our volunteers, salaries for our employees and all the research material * Time Second thing we ask from u is time. As u know every project demands time, time for plans, time for research and time for action. So we ask you to give us time of one year to show u and submit a full result of the project and the changes it is making in the environment around us. It is my belief that with your help and the help from the funds we ask for, we can actually make a difference in our society. We can educate people about the developments in the field of green energy and convince them to go green.
Appendix 1 Facts about Land Pollution Here are a few facts about land pollution: * Every year one American produces over 3285 pounds of hazardous waste * Land pollution causes us to lose 24 billion tons of top soil every year * Americans generate 30 billion foam cups, 220 million tires and 1. 8 billion disposable diapers every year * We throw away enough trash every day to fill 63,000 garbage trucks * Every day Americans throw away 1 million bushels of litter out their car window * Over 80% of items in landfills can be recycled, but they’re not
Facts about Air Pollution Here are a few facts about air pollution: * Almost 232 million different types of vehicles are driven by U. S. citizens every day, adding greenhouse gases into the air * U. S. vehicle emissions contribute 45% to global warming * The average adult consumes 3,000 gallons of polluted air every day * Vehicle exhaust contributes to 60% of carbon monoxide emissions in the U. S. and up to 95% in large cities.
