I’d like to begin this blog with a children’s story which I think speaks a lot about climate change:
“Not my job”
“Once upon a time, there were four people; their names were Everybody, Somebody,
Nobody and Anybody. Whenever there was an important job to be done, Everybody was
sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. When
Nobody did it, Everybody got angry because it was Everybody¹s job.
Everybody thought that Somebody would do it, but Nobody realized that Nobody
would do it. So consequently Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what
Anybody could have done in the first place.”
I’m from a country where about 55% of the electricity is powered by coal and another 43% is powered by natural gas and other fossil fuels. I sincerely care about the environment and want to do anything I can to help mitigate climate change.
I’ve been trying to implement an alternative project to build a wave energy plant which is cheaper and more efficient than wind or solar. Projects like mine can lead to a significant impact for implementing renewable energy.
As far as I know, I’m the only person in the world using this idea to compete in both the Toradex Challege and the James Dyson Award for social innovation and technology.
The problem with my project is that nobody knows about it, and few people care to share it.
If there is anyone out there that wants to see a difference in the world, please help me with my project.
Thank you for reading,
