The world is increasingly becoming energy-aware today. It turns out that our survival on this planet depends on taking non-renewable and carbon-emitting fuels out of the picture. This has led to some really ‘out there’ ways of gathering energy. This includes the usuals like solar power, wind energy and some (IMO) wacky things like a soccer ball that conserves the energy you use to kick it (although in the Indian context I think a cricket ball would be better) and recharging your cell phone by your own pulse . So I too hit upon an idea. How about converting the heat in the atmosphere to energy? If solar power cells can transform sun light into usable energy, is it not possible to use the rising temperatures as fuel. It does seem sci-fi but if made possible we could in fact be using global warming to decrease global warming. Heat and rising temperatures are not going anywhere for the next few years and if we can use this heat as fuel.. voila! we’ll have an abundant and renewable source of energy which will not give out emissions, and not add to the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Any scientists listening?
