These types of energy advancements can help the environment. The fewer greenhouse gases we can produce the better it is for the environment. Solar and wind energy are the best options right now. If we would have more organizations that inform people about these environmental probelms, such as The Solar Foundation, we would be wasting less oil each day.
There is still one major probelm we have to face. All of these advancements cost a lot of money. Where are we going to get alll this money to fund for these new technologies? This is a very big obstacle that we will have to overcome.
President Obama is doing a good job coming out and talking about how he supports using nuclear energy. He has also given a budget to make new nuclear plants. Bad thing about nuclear plants is that they are not 100% safe and they also pollute the air.
