Speed Match Review Game

This game has been played 1 times
The best time ever was Aek at 160 seconds.
The best time today is at seconds.
How To Play:
Drag the squares in the gray area and drop them in the matching squares in the blue area below.
If you drop a square in the correct spot, it will disappear.
If you make a mistake, the square will return to its original spot.
Good luck!

Let's Play Speed Match!

As much as 2/3 of what we throw away can be burned.
Wind is nonpolluting and it's free.
Sedimentary Rocks
Possible advantages: generate electricity, makes plastics, home shingles, heat buildings. Some Disadvantages: create pollution, they are nonrenewable
Burning municipal waste can produce toxic ash residue and air pollution.
Solar cells work less efficiently on cloudy days and cannot work at all at night.
gases and small particles are released and can pollute the air.
It is cheap and helps reduce the amount of material to be dumped in a landfill.
Solar cells actively collect energy from the sun and transforms it into electricity.
Energy resources that can be replaced in nature or by humans within a relatively short period of time.
A large concrete dam is built to retain water. As water is released, its force turns turines at the base of the dame. The turbines then turn generators that make electricity.
They are called fossil fuels because they are made up of the remains of animals and plants.
10,000 yrs
Dead plant material accumulates and over time heat and pressure create lignite coal.
about 90%
Wind is unpredictable. For an area to use wind energy consistently, the area must have a persistent wind that blows steadily.
Geothermal Energy
Nuclear fusion is when materials of low mass are fused together to form a substance of higher mass (energy from the sun). Nuclear fission is the splitting of heavy elements (like uranium) to produce energy.
The hot, dry underground rocks used can be found just about anywhere.

renewable
As one tree is cut down, another can be planted in its place.
