Oh no, it’s Bank Holiday time again. Busy roads, crowded beaches and when you get there, cold, wind and rain...typical? No, not this August bank holiday weekend though; on the contrary, we have record high temperatures and fine sunny weather. London Heathrow Airport recorded the highest temperature of 33.3C (91.94F) on Saturday 25th August 2019.
I presume that record high temperatures will feature around the world again over the next few years. Weather scientists have predicted an upward trend. The average global temperature is expected to keep rising above pre-industrial levels. The burning of fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas releases greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane into Earth's atmosphere and oceans. The extra CO2 caused temperatures to rise to levels that cannot be explained by natural factors, scientists report. Responsible factors include transportation, consuming electricity, building and deforestation. Currently, there are devastating and damaging wildfires in the Amazon rainforest.
Therefore, it is becoming increasingly important to find alternative sources of capturing energy, without harming the environment. The wind is one such alternative, which is safer and more abundant than fossil fuels; and it will never run out. It's an indigenous, clean and an endless energy source.
National Geographic explains how wind can be harnessed to create energy:
“Wind is the movement of air from an area of high pressure to an area of low pressure. In fact, wind exists because the sun unevenly heats the surface of the Earth. As hot air rises, cooler air moves in to fill the void. As long as the sun shines, the wind will blow. And wind has long served as a power source to humans.
Ancient mariners used sails to capture the wind. Farmers once used windmills to grind their grains and pump water. Today, more and more wind turbines wring electricity from the breeze. Over the past decade, wind turbine use has increased more than 25 percent per year. Still, it only provides a small fraction of the world's energy.”
This government web page shows how wind turbines work:
Erecting a wind turbine in your garden at home may be a problem, but there are alternatives.
Why not invest in a garden wind spinner from Brilliant Wall Art? These may not produce energy but they will certainly add movement and artistic flair to your outdoor spaces.
These spinners are freestanding which incorporate garden stakes and balance arms into the sculpture whilst rotating and rocking in the wind. They are constructed from metal, powder coated and hand-painted in bright and colourful finishes.
These wonderful designs add movement to the garden and are perfect gifts at any time of year. They are all individually boxed with a stake in two pieces which easily slots together.
