http://solar.coolerplanet.com/News/800503277-marines-switching-to-solar-power.aspx We have the means to switch to solar energy we just havent pushed to extend research and change to solar energy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qTKEmm7hfgk We have now started to extend research and we are learning a lot more about solar energy http://gcep.stanford.edu/research/factsheets/pete_solar.html With the development of photon enhanced thermionic emissions capturing solar energy is becoming easier and more reliable. Along with this it is also becoming cheaper.
http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/08/100802101813.htm This shows ethos because the magazine science daily is describing how photon enhanced thermionic emissions works. http://large.stanford.edu/courses/2010/ph240/brown-cohen2/ This shows ethos because Stanford university is explaining the newest developments in the harvesting of solar energy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9yNj1zEh-nM&feature=relmfu This has ethos because Stanfords global climate and energy project is having a short symposium on the basics of solar energy.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gK7lUK0711E&feature=pyv This shows pathos because if this old man can run solar cells anyone can http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WsjUyRGeNlU This shows pathos because this little Asian girl grew up to be the scientist she wanted to be even though she is female. http://www.gawa.nu/stories/story_solar.htm This shows ethos because it has given many starving and unfortunate people the gift of electricity.
Solar energy is beginning to be cheaper to obtain They have now combined photovoltaics and thermionic emissions to make photon enhanced thermionic emissions which take light and heat energy to increase output Anyone can now put up solar panels Solar panel s are now coming out in sizes for personal use and are now easier to put together Solar energy can be used in places that electricity usually cant be afforded in Solar energy is a green way to harvest energy and does not waste fossil fuels or natural gases With the world moving forward we should also try not to increase the carbon footprint and using a green energy like solar energy helps reduce this, this is a way to keep our energy demands and still stay productive without wasting unrenewable resources
