SOLAR WATER HEATER PROBLEMS - GARAGE PORTABLE HEATERS.
Shabnam Gujadhur -- Mauritius -- Class A
My photograph encompasses the 3 core elements of the Common Wealth Theme 2010-a€?Science, Technology, and Societya€. It depicts a scene where the background is dominated by a few houses, each making use of the solar water heaters and in contrast, some electrical cables are hanging in the foreground. The message behind this photograph is that in the wake of global warming the society has begun to prioritise the use of renewable energy such as solar energy instead of electrical energy obtained from petroleum products which are in fact causing tremendous damage to our so said a€?Blue Planeta€. First of all, this photograph reveals the society current dilemma. Through years Man has unconsciously sown the seeds of his own destruction. We have become dependent on the use of non renewable sources of energy such as electrical energy which is in fact one of the causes of the problem of pollution and global warming which has been jeopardizing many countries worldwide. As it can be seen in this photograph, the electrical cables lies in the foreground and the solar water heaters lie in the background. This emphasises the fact that society has become reliable on the use of such energies had thus overlooking the potential of solar energy. Now realising the impacts that have resulted in, it has begun to value solar energy through applications such as solar water heater as indicated in the picture. That is why at the first glance at this photograph it can clearly be deduced that the houses with the solar water heaters on the roof dominate the whole scene. The first aspect which this photograph illustrates is the benefits of the field of Science and Technology to Man. The twentieth century has been marked by several inventions made in the field of Science and Technology. Among them is the solar water heater which makes use of the solar energy to heat water instead of electrical energy. As such this photograph clearly shows the use of the solar water heater which has been a boon to our society. The second aspect which the picture encloses is the society. It exemplifies the fact that today our society has become conscious of the phenomenon such as pollution, global warming, and climate change which are threatening the world. Thus, through the use of solar water heaters, people have taken the first step towards a better world. Indeed, if each and every individual of the society are willing to contribute, much good can be done. Indeed, the inventions made by Science and Technology are numerous and an ongoing process but yet it is the society and its individuals which have to make wise decisions as far as their use are concerned. I would like to end by a famous saying said by Issac Asimov, a master of science-fiction: "The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom."0294-Ormeau-0209
A house in Ormeau. This house receives our "Global Cooling" award, because it is painted white. This reflects more sunlight and the house generates less heat and contributes less to the global warming problem. This house also needs less energy for cooling and also uses a solar water heater (on the roof). If we are really serious about stopping global warming...we could go a lot further... We could clad all our houses, buildings and structures with solar panels...produce our own electricity...produce all our own fuel, for our vehicles and cooking, by using some of the electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen... We could make fossil fuels obsolete... We could STOP global warming and climate change !!! Please don't forget to add a comment, or at least, just say hi, when you have viewed this photo !
