    I can get that the little things can make a big impact. That even though I am making an impact, that their are other ways to make the world a better place other than just helping the environment. Things like helping people and being an example can help the world be a better place.

    I learned that both refer to the extraction of kinetic energy from the ocean to generate electricity, but the locations of each and the mechanisms that they use for generating power are slightly different.
