I think ghosts are real, but they won't try to kill you or pull you under the bed or throw a television at you. The reason for this is because they do not have enough mass. You see, a man named Duncan MacDougall conducted a study about the weight of the soul, which has now been popularized as roughly 21 grams. However, Augustus P. Clarke found a fault in MacDougall's study: your body temperature rises just before death because your lungs can no longer maintain your blood's temperature, and the s...

The first argument is for a short definition on what you are supporting. Renewable energy is defined as "energy that comes from resources which are naturally replenished on a human timescale such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves and geothermal heat."[1] The four of these sources (rain, tide, and wave fall under hydro energy) together can power the globe cleanly.
