Holy Crap.

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 10, 2010, 10:21 AM
:iconlizjowen:




Wednesday 10th February, 18:20.

So I guess this journal is pretty important, if not to you then to the whole world. Thing is -  and you might've already have known this -  but we are running out of resources. In about twenty years time the demand for electricity would increase dramatically, and we would've run out of gas and oil. Which is bad, people, really bad.
Because we rely heavily on electricity, don't we? And if it runs out or if there isn't any way to produce it...we're screwed. Big time. We use fossil fuels (oil, gas, coal) so much that they are dissolving away, and it takes millions of years to produce them, as they are fine art resources.
So I really want to help "but how?" one might ask themselves. I believe that by making the littliest of steps could aid the future so this is my 'going-to-do' list:

:bulletorange: Spend less time on the computer. That uses a lot of electricity.
:bulletorange: Switch lights off when I leave the rooms, stuff like that.
:bulletorange: Use my phone less so that I wouldn't have to charge it all of the time.
:bulletorange: Do more traditional kinds of art so that I wouldn't have to do everything on the computer, hence lessining the time spent on it.

If we did little things like that, that could create a big impact and perhaps help the years to come last a little while longer so that we would have time to try and discover new ways to gather energy. So please, think about it, and do what you can to help ^______^

-

I also got tagged (quite a number of times), so I'll post them all here:

Tagged by : :iconfakekimono:

Dear Yumii--Chan
I don't really know how to tell you this, but I think that you are slightly perverted. I think I realized it yesterday morning and I saw you stalking me. I'm sure you're smart enough to understand what I'm trying to say. I'm returning your video recorder to you, but I'll keep the photos as a memory. You should also know that I am a prostitue...;).

Yours truly,
Lizzie.

(Oh and by the way, none of this is true. No, I am not a prostitue and no I'm sure that Yumii-chan is not a pervert. Well I hope not anyway).

I am not going to tag people as I know that most hate them.

RULES:
Do the "Letter MEME". Tag no less than 5 other people, and leave them a comment, informing them that they have been tagged. Then copy the "How-to" Letter Meme, and finish your Journal entry.

-> How you do the Letter Meme:

Dear (the last person who left a comment on your journal or deviation):

I don't really know how to tell you this, but ___1___. I think I realized it ___2___ ___3___ and I saw you ___4___ ___5___. I'm sure you're ___6___ enough to understand ___7___. I'm returning ___8___ to you, but I'll keep ___9___ as a memory. You should also know that I ___10___ ___11___ .

___12___,
-Your name-

Second Tag:

The RULES is :
1. Post these rules.
2. Each tagged person must post 10 things about themselves on their journal.
3. At the end, you have to choose and tag 10 people and post their icons on the same journal.
4. Go to their pages and send a message saying you tagged them

About the luuurvely me:
1. I should be starting my Graphic Art portfolio right now Dx
2. I hate copy-cats and stuck-up bitches with a passon. No wait, backstabbers and two-faced cows are the worst.
3. I am VERY ticklish, and also smile at everything. Kind of.
4. I'm in love with Lolita fashion <3
5. At night I am a ninja, which is why I am always tired for school and why I don't do my homework.
6. I wish I was a neko or something, because then I could have a reason to say 'nya' all the time.
7. My dream job is to be a Graphic's designer or Illustrator, even though I've never had experience in these kind of things before. Oh well.
8. I really should be writing more to my story as I want to finish it on my birthday.
9. I can't wait to go to France, because I luuurve the french language and want to be really good at it.
10. I spend too much time on the computer. Going to give myself a time limit.

Again, not going to tag people. Hahah, see how nice I am?

Yeah thats true, but are working on that too. Where I live in Florida most of our electricity here is made with nuclear energy and is really clean energy, in fact electricity costs here in Florida has dropped dramatically this year and is going to drop even more the next year with the new technology. And actually they plan on using solar pannels too to make even better ways to make electricity.

Our electrict bill has dropped a lot and we use the same as before. But, yeah it doesn't hurt to save electricity, I try to save as much as I can by disconnecting things I don't use not just turning them off and keeping only the lights I need. But don't worry tho I think they will come out with better ways of electricty in the near future everywhere. Is true that our populations gets bigger and bigger but we get more and more creative too as time goes by so I think we will be ok.

I guess Solar panels would really work in a place like Florida as I heard that it is very very sunny there...but in England it would be not so good :P And for some other parts of the world too, which sucks >_< Solar energy is so expensive Dx
Well I want to save electricity anyhow, just in case something happens in the future :D

:icondarktaru:
Darktaru Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2010
Yeah solar energy is good here, is summer here all year long, hehe. But right now we are using nuclear energy, which costs less and is clean energy as well. I think Florida is one of only places with nuclear energy. Hopefully more places start using nuclear energy as well. No idea what type of weather you guys have in England @.@

We use Nucleur too, but it's kind of dangerous as it takes so long to 'throw it away' Dx
And the weather here...isn't that sunny :L Well, we have really cold winters and sunny summers xD

Darktaru Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2010
Yeah, I dont know how in Florida we are doing so well w/ nuclear but our electric bill has dropped w/ the new price adjustments to $30-$40 a month (our last bill was $36, we used to pay as much as $190 last year) which is cheapest in the nation. Our weather here is sunny so the majority of our bill goes on air conditioning which consumes A LOT of eletricity and every house in Florida is required by law to have air conditioning to prevent people from dying from heat, but even then our electricity is cheap. We don't have much of a winter here, maybe 1 week or 2 the whole year if that much, and its always the hottest place in the US. Even when we are cold here, it just means everywhere else is even colder. But yeah, I hope we can get new ways to make electricty specially since they want to make eletric powered cars soon... so then that would drive our electricty consuption up by crazy amounts, but gasoline sucks anyways and pretty much the countries with the cheapest gas are all ran by terrorists or comunists so I think we'll be better off with electricity D:

There are actually more fuel efficient ways that our fossil fuels could be used..... It's just everyone who profits off the sale of fossil fuels dosen't want them to be used because it's a smaller paycheck for them....

But those are good ways to save electricity.... And I've been wanting to do more traditional art.... So what's a better time then now to start?

There are but, which might apply to all countries, people are very greedy. China had bought a whole mountain in Peru just because it contained a lot of copper, which is a bit silly in my opinion (please don't kill me).

Thankyou! :D I can't wait to start doing traditional again ^____^

I know what you mean by fossil fuels. But you're forgetting the natural resources. If those were used, we wouldnt have a problem of things running out. The wind is neverendin, and we are to have another 3billion years of sun life and water too. I try to conserve energy as much as possible :D i use energy saver lightbbulbs too!

lizjowen Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Natural resources are also a problem due to costs and, of course, C02 emmissions. Also, things like dams cause problems for the environment such as the Delta's shortening, which means that the silt - which is used for farming- is washed away. An example of a dam not being able to work efficiently is the Aswan Dam; because of the dam, the river water wasn't able to wash away the sea water, which caused problems for farming.
Things like Solar cannot be heavily relied on because, obviously, we don't get the sun all of the time. They are also very expensive much like the Wind mills. The only 'natural resource' that might help would be Nucleur, but that causes even more problems.
So, really, we can't use Natural resources that much because of the environmental impacts it causes ^____^

Cor blimey, I haven't written anything like that before :P
Yeppers, I use them too! :D I always tell my sister off when she doesn't switch off her radio whilst she's in another room :P

your thinking the pessimistic side. Also, if looked after properly, and somehow waste was able to be transported to..i dunno, outter space? Nuclear would be excellent. Shame there is some stupid people out there and to the fact that a self lifting shuttle was invented...

Ah bejeeaaniiee, im talking too much >.>

CONSERVE ENERGY!! IT SHALL BE GOOD FOR OUR PRETTYFUL WORLLDDD
