So I was thinking… Debate 1

Yeah so a potential idea for this blog was to ask questions and in the comments section of the post, discuss thoughts and opinions…. a debate.

So I ask the question;

Should governments around the world be turning to greener and more renewable energy resources such as wind, solar, tidal and wave power? Or to keep sustainable economic growth, should we continue with ‘business as usual’ with fossil fuels?

What about nuclear power?

Many countries over the world are tied into reducing their greenhouse gas emissions, yet only a number are making an effort.

Is there any point in trying to turn to greener energy? Or seeing as the ‘tipping point’ may have been passed already, does humanity begin to prepare and adapt for the inevitable consequences of global warming?

Renewable or ‘business as usual’? Mitigate or adapt?

    I have little to no knowledge on this debate topic so… I’m probably going to be crap at debating it.

    No. We should continue as usual.

    I think greener energy resources are brilliant. They’re definitely the future, while not as good as the nuclear etc. they still get the job done eventually.

    I say “No” because I think it needs a lot of set-up and for the moment we should stick to what we know best. That and I doubt countries like Russia or North Korea will be going green any time soon and thus we need to keep up with them energy wise.

    Go green once there is world peace first I guess.
