Coal Burning Power Plants
Doubtfully, there is a person who does not have an opinion about the coal burning power plants. Perhaps, most of you know a lot about them but some more information would certainly not be unnecessary.
What we should probably start with is that the coal burning power plants are one of the oldest ways for producing energy or electricity. Yes, they are one of the first and that automatically makes them one of the least eco-friendly ways for generating electricity. Yes, you have probably noticed the word “automatically”: it is usually because everything which we used to do in the past caused huge environmental problems.
Speaking about that, it should not be denied that the coal burning power factories had their moments of fame. After all, if it had not been for them, the people living in the middle of the last century would have lacked electricity. Logically, if they had not been at the stage of development which they were actually at, we would not be today also.
Do you think that the coal power plants are being denies too much? Well, if you do, it’s quite wrong. The problem is that it is not about the denial, it’s about choosing the most environmentally friendly and the most comfortable way for producing electricity. “Surprising” though it may be that kind of plants is neither more comfortable nor more eco-friendly.
And here are some facts to prove that. Let’s just compare the coal burning power plants and the nuclear reactors. You probably know that the nuclear reactors use Uranium (several of its isotopes). Well, it may sound incredibly to you but the electricity (energy) generated by 1 kilogram of uranium equals the energy produces by 3.000 tons (3.000.000 kilos) of coals. How does it sound to you? But that’s not at all. The energy produced by the power plants is more expensive (60% more but it could be even twice the price of nuclear energy). Two significant disadvantages of the coal power factories have been pointed out already. Of course, there are many others…
What?! The environmental issues were going to be skipped. They certainly cannot remain unmentioned. The manufacturing of nuclear energy does not cause any environmental shocks and the risk of polluting is much less serious. That’s just one more reason which should make the people realize that the coal burning power plants are by far not the safest, cheapest and easiest way for generating electricity. It is just the opposite!
It is fairly obvious what the job of a cook will entail, but if you have skills in this area would you consider working on an oil rig to put them to the test? It certainly provides an altogether different environment from where many other cooks work, and yet it is...
