Power Plants – Friends or Foes?

Energy – this is the essential part, requirement, and precondition of our today’s life, development, and evolution on the long run. We are dependent on energy today. We need it to cook food, to warm and light our houses, to fight the diseases, to produce all kinds of merchandise, and to make new discoveries and achievements in science and art. On the very basic level, we need energy to make everything in the life of a modern man move and work, ensuring all the modern lifestyle comforts and benefits. Actually, the value and importance of energy is out of question today. Rather it is the price we need to pay for the energy – this is the question, which still remains open…

All kinds of power plants, the sources of energy, are featured in this showcase at Cruzine. From highly efficient yet risky nuclear power stations to environment-friendly innovative wind power stations – we have many faces of the power plants to show to our readers today. Those faces are very different – some look magnificent, others – scary, some – peacefully, and others – pretty dangerously. Thinking about power plants a bit more thoroughly, one can again face the eternal dilemma – does the end justify the means? Is the price we, our children, and our Planet pay for the energy today fair? This question is also open today; however, humans do not have other choice than to reconsider it once again and finally make some serious decisions about the entire concept of our energy sources and power plants in particular.

With 30 years of life experience behind my shoulders, today I find myself focused mainly around two core values: my family (I am a happy husband and a proud father) and IT in its broadest meaning, including but not limited to hardware and software techniques and innovations. My special interest and true passion is photography. Here I am ready to put my signature under each word, once said by Dorothea Lange: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Being a part of Cruzine team, I enjoy instant process of learning as well as sharing my own experience in photography and IT with the readers of this digital magazine.
