Abstract

When seawater evaporates, it becomes rainwater that you can store and use later on. The resources available on earth are immeasurable, yet it takes so much time for it to replenish its usable state, just like the ocean. When I drive through cities, I’m always in awe of being constantly reminded how the human race has progressed. The rate at which we progress concerns me, do we have enough power to fuel the future? Are the resources we can tap in from support the amount of research we do? This research aims to assess our energy reserves that seem limitless at the moment but is running out at an exponential rate. The project will reference recent research done by scientists as well as studies of public opinion toward renewable energy. The poster will seek to peel off the doubt of the public and contribute to the existing argument by producing an enticing project that will convince the public to start thinking about the renewable energy transition. I believe that securing the future starts by transitioning to the usage of an energy source that will last more than just generations, thus, transitioning to Renewable Energy.

Think of the Future: From Nonrenewable to Sustainable
