You know how they always refer to green, renewable and sustainable energy as “new energy”?
Well, if you think about it, the earliest known use of wind power in mankind is definitely the sail boat dating as far back as 5500 BC .
In Europe, windmills first appeared in the 12th century. In America between 1850 and 1900, a large number of windmills operated irrigation pumps in farms.
And the first known patent to use energy from ocean waves dates back to 1799….yep….1799.
Then we have solar….By the 3rd century B.C., the Greeks and Romans bounced sunlight off of “burning mirrors” to light sacred torches for religious ceremonies.
Soooo….Its the fossil fuels and nuclear sources that are the “new” kids on the block, right?
We have everything we need to create our “new energy”.
