and moisture begins to condense out as fine droplets, which we see as clouds. When conditions are right on the ground, the same process forms fog. Eventually, water in clouds forms rain, hail, sleet, or snow, which falls back to the ground. This movement of water from the earth to the atmosphere and back again is called the water cycle. The water cycle is responsible for much of the world's weather.

Renewable Energy 101

Renewable energy is energy that is generated from sunlight, rain, tides, geothermal heat and wind. These sources are naturally and constantly replenished, which is why they are deemed as renewable. The usage of renewable energy sources is very important when considering the sustainability of the existing energy usage of the world. While there is currently an abundance of non-renewable energy sources, such as nuclear fuels, these energy sources are depleting. In addition to being a non-renewable supply, the non-renewable energy sources release emissions into the air, which has an adverse effect on the environment.
