    I had, but what surprised me is that Anaerobic Digesters don't only produce Biogas, a form of clean energy, they produce Digestate, a fertilizer.

    Methane Digesters are a type of biomass, and I figure I've probobly researched them for ten hours in the past few months.

    Why is it important that girls have equal access to education in order to reduce our global greenhouse gas emissions?

    It is important because girls are just as important as boys.

    Electricity Generation Learn More about Wave and Tidal Energy
    What did you learn about wave and tidal energy? How do they compare to other energy sources?

    Wave and tidal energy are quite different, and I find wave energy to be more interesting, so I will describe that.

    Wave energy seems simple at first: use the waves to turn a turbine. it is more complicated than that. When a crowd does the wave in a stadium, they do not actually run around the stadium. if they did, it would be easy to power a turbine by strapping the people to the rotors. In fact, the waves re just the water rising and falling, like people standing and sitting doing the wave, making it hard to extract energy. Most solutions are inefficient or expensive.
