Environmental Policy and Education

Staggering amount of fossil fuel is consumed continuously and fuel scarcity will come to an end soon. Moreover, burning fossil fuel emits greenhouse gas and atmospheric pollutants. Therefore, it is important to find alternative clean energy sources such as renewable energy. Unlike conventional energy sources, renewable energy is abundant in the environment and can be replenished by the natural process so that they can be reused again. Some of the renewable energies are as follows:

地球上的化石燃料不斷被消耗,終有一天會用盡,而且燃燒化石燃料會釋出溫室氣體或其他污染物,因此天然潔淨的能源對維持我們的日常生活愈來愈重要。其中一個方法就是使用可再生能源。可再生能源是指其再生速度較消耗速度快的能源,包括:

Wind Power

When sunlight is irradiated on the solar panel, delocalized electrons will be excited. Direct current will be produced when it is connected to a closed circuit. A current inverter needed to be added to transform DC to AC. 

太陽能發電,顧名思義是利用陽光來發電。當陽光照射在太陽能電池板上,會激發電池板上的游離電子流動,當它連接在一閉合電路時,會產生直流電。如要將其轉換成交流電,供電器使用,便要加上一個電流轉換器。

Wind power is the use of natural wind to initiate the rotation of windmills or wind wheels. This momentum will drive the generator to produce direct current. A current inverter can be added to transform DC to AC.

風力發電是利用空氣流動而形成的自然風轉動風車/風輪,風的動能推動發電機,因而產生直流電,並且可加一個電流轉換器將直流電轉換成交流電。

Hydroelectric Energy

Hydroelectric is the use of water flow and the difference in potential energy to drive a turbine generator directly in order to produce electricity. The larger amount of water flow or larger difference in potential energy can result in a larger amount of electricity being generated. However, the application of hydropower is also limited by its geographical location. It can only apply in the big river such as the Yangtze River.

水力發電是利用水的流量及位能差直接推動渦輪發電機而產生電力,水流量及位能差越大,所產生的電能越多。這是受地理環境所影響的,因此在大型河流如在長江興建的三峽大霸(右圖) 才適合發展水力發電。

環境教育
Environmental Education 

To acquire a balance between environment, economy and society in order to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own need, sustainable development is of utmost importance. Therefore, it is necessary to educate the next generation and raise their environmental awareness. We also put our effort on environmental education.

要在環境、經濟及社會之間取得平衡,以滿足現今我們的需求,又不損害下一代所需要的資源,可持續發展是非常重要。因此,我們必需教育下一代如何保護環境和提升他們的環保意識。而我們在環保教育方面也出了一分力。
