Does renewable energy actually prevent pollution?

    Renewable energy sources such as wind, hydroelectric, geothermal, tidal have one big thing in common which is that they are clean sources of energy. But is this actually true? Researches show that they need to store the energy which creates some problems. As it is not fully used, the energy will lose its charge after some time creating some pollution. Even though the battery problem is better than coal energy pollution, this is still a problem and there need to be further considerations.

    Pollution can always be prevented. For me, using renewable energy is more safe and reliable.

    No it's not prevention it's an alternative in my opinion. Prevention is when you stop the source of pollution. having said that, renewable energy is a good start towards healing mother earth.

    To some extent the renewable energy can be remade. And we can do something about it. But this may not happen all the time for sure.

    I have read that they are having problems now in disposing used solar panels. Although these solar thing are effective still we are presented with the garbage or disposability problems. There are some materials found in solar panels that need to be disposed of properly lest they create some environmentl disaster and cause health problems among the populace. So it's a solution but at the same time it can cause some problems that we need to be aware of and be ready for some apt solutions.

    I think preventing the pollution is a bit hard. Considering more and more people in the city and the small place eventually leads to the pollution and other resource issues.

    Renewable energy may help, but take Los Angeles, the main culprits of air pollution are vehicle emissions, fumes from industrial plants, and the city's proximity to two of the country's largest ports as well.

    I think we dont know what may help based on pure speculation. We have to see the changes in the environment for things to make sense.

    Yes but not all places in the world have the sunlight that regular. So the energy is something that may be not that easy.
