Giant or dwarf

Sun powers life

Some will state that the size always matters while others will count on the effectiveness. Let us take a look at the renewable energy sources. Of course not all territories could benefit from the power of the water as not all have this valuable resource while the sun and wind are for everybody.

Leaders in hydropower –China,Russia,USA,Brazil,Canada, etc. must rely on the transmission grids (and suffer huge losses) to supply users with electricity while small local power plants can support small consumption with minimum losses. So, the question is – Is it better to have an army of few giants or legions of dwarves?

The giant smashes with his feet the land he steps on, while the gentle dwarf smuggles between trees and rocks, keeping the balance of the surrounding environment. And if we look at the nature, we will see that the mass of the tiny living forms exceed several times the mass of the giants (incl. human beings). Let us learn from the ants.
