Brasilia is the capital of the country. The country’s total area is 8,511,965 sq km, and the land area counts 8,456,510 sq km. Brazil territory includes Arquipelago de Fernando de Noronha, Atol das Rocas, Ilha da Trindade, Ilhas Martin Vaz, and Penedos de Sao Pedro e Sao Paulo.
Brazil is considered a leader in alternative energy. A vast amount of its electricity is produced through hydropower and much of the vehicle transportation has been converted to ethanol fuel, a biomass product produced from sugar cane. With the transformation, Brazil is now an exporter of oil instead of an importer despite the fact it has nominal oil reserves.
The U.S. is definitely not immune to the possibility of what is know as hyper inflation. This is where the costs of everyday goods go through the roof. The result is the loss in value of the American dollar. If this happens, the dollar will only buy a fraction of what it can buy today.
Staying away from commercial energy drinks can only add to your long term energy. Doctors are now saying that a simple glass of water with lemon juice can do much to activate a sluggish system. This balances ph levels making protein absorption more efficient. This is real sustainable energy. Medical research has also shown that a tablespoon of peanut butter and a glass of water, as unsophisticated as it sounds, can provide longer lasting, better energy than a cup of coffee. All of this sounds a bit unsexy, I know, but more and more people are starting to realize the solution to the energy crisis in your body can be dealt with by a little common sense.
Speaking of which, what could be more sustainable than solar? It’s not as if the sun is going to burn out any time soon. The average photovoltaic (PV) array has a life expectancy of 40 years now (their warranties are usually 25 years) and pays for itself after only 8-10 years, depending on the location. Very few investments will pay that kind of guaranteed return. After ten years, you’re getting free electricity for the next 15-30 years. Not bad. Actually, if energy prices keep rising as seems likely with billions of new consumers online in China and India, your PV array could turn out to be quite the bonanza from an investment standpoint.
Tom wanted at least a half dozen hens. Their city ordinance allowed for this, but not for a rooster, which was okay with Tom and Barbara, because they weren’t planning to breed more chickens. A half dozen hens would give them just over two dozen eggs a week. Their manure, when added to their compost heap, will give them a superior fertilizer for their garden.
Finally, salt caverns can store CO2 from big industry. Though a newer idea, projects are being put together where heavy carbon producing plants are having their CO2 piped into these salt caverns for storage instead of releasing it into the atmosphere. Governments are rewarding these companies with carbon credits.
