Today’s episode of Noise Pollution was an informative one (or at least we’d like to think so)! Our topic of the week was energy, with a focus on alternatives to fossil fuels. The three fossil fuels are crude oil, coal, and natural gas. The renewable sources we mentioned were hydroelectricity, nuclear, wind, biofuel, solar, and geothermal power. All of these extremely different energy sources have their own pros and cons, making it very difficult to determine which ones are better for the environment. We suggest doing some research yourself to see where your opinions lie (instead of automatically resorting to Liz’s radical views on nuclear power). Try checking out Wikipedia to build a foundation, and then move into sites such as National Geographic and Natural Resources Canada to expand your knowledge. Here is a webpage, with real time updates of BTU index and contributions from different energy sources.
If you’re ever in need of a little extra energy, we don’t recommend going down the red bull route or you’ll end up having a fit like Liz during The Morning Show’s 24 Hour Broadcast. We had such an awesome time on-air with Girl Talk Boy Talk and Versus from the Abstract. So much so you can hear us this Sunday at 6pm as guests on Girl Talk Boy Talk right here on radiolaurier.com!
Make sure to tune in next week when we talk about garbage, recycling, and composting.
