Introduction Hi, allow me to introduce myself, my name is Nathan Abraham Primana, and I partake in the class of Energy Conversion System 2 of class ENME615022. In this page, I will give the following updates on my Energy Conversion System 2 assignments and class.

Energy Conversion System 2 – Date: 14 February 2023 – Topic: Energy Consumption and Production.
As for today’s class of ECS 2, I was listening to the lecture that was brought by Pr leading crisis in energy consumption and production: 1. energy outlook 2023-2024, although it wouldn’t make a significant change towards the climate significantly, what would be the outcome in the long run. 2. how can we reduce carbon emissions? a. where does the vast majority of carbon emission produce by? 3. would a clean earth be achievable at a time where most people are dependant towards oil and gas a source of energy to run vehicles and for electricity? 4. does electric vehicle really reduce the number of pollutants towards the atmosphere? a. what is involved in the production of electric vehicle components and parts? b. corelating question back: what actions would be needed in order to reduce large amounts of air pollutants from the atmosphere?
Energy Conversion System 2 – Date: 21 February 2023 – Topic: Correlations in Industries of engineering and Energy production.
On th 21st of February 2023, we were asked to find the relation of the engineering industries such as sugar cane, battery, oil and gas with the help of the opensource Artificial Intelligence (AI). To which I got the response: The engineering industries you mentioned (sugar cane, battery, oil, and gas) are related in the sense that they are all involved in the production, extraction, and refining of natural resources to create products that are used in our daily lives. Sugar cane engineering involves the cultivation, processing, and refinement of sugar cane to produce sugar, which is used as a sweetener in food and beverages. Battery engineering involves the design and manufacturing of batteries, which are used to store electrical energy for various applications, such as powering electronic devices, electric vehicles, and renewable energy systems.
Oil engineering involves the exploration, extraction, transportation, and refining of crude oil to produce various products, such as gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel, as well as other petrochemicals used in manufacturing. Gas engineering involves the exploration, extraction, transportation, and refining of natural gas to produce products such as fuel for heating and cooking, as well as industrial and commercial uses. Overall, these industries are related in that they are all involved in the production and refinement of natural resources to create products that are important for modern society. about the engineering industry of Oil and gas towards the rivalry in the rise of electric vehicles and renewable energy.
To then I followed up the question by asking ChatGPT about the vast majority of carbon emission and it responded with: The vast majority of carbon emissions are produced by burning fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas for energy production. This includes emissions from power plants, transportation, industry, and residential and commercial buildings. Other human activities, such as deforestation and agriculture, also contribute to carbon emissions. Carbon emissions contribute to climate change, which can have significant impacts on the environment and human health. As a result, there is a growing effort to reduce carbon emissions by transitioning to cleaner energy sources, improving energy efficiency, and adopting more sustainable practices. This then got me thinking as to what it would take to create a cleaner environment and would it actually be achievable in the near future. This came about when I visited New York a couple of years ago and saw the timer or countdown on one of the LED screens stating the time left for us to make a change in carbon emission. This climate clock led by a climate change organization to achieve focus among people to realize the point of which carbons are present as pollution in the environment and has impacted the climate, forcing us to make a change in energy consumptions and productions, how would we be able to do that? https://www.globalcitizen.org/en/content/new-york-clock-countdown-climate-disaster/
Then leads to the question that I thought about again, would electrical vehicles really reduce the amount of carbon emission in the earth, as we speak, thousands upon millions of carbons are released to the air in the form of pollution from factories of electric vehicles to produce components such as batteries, they require element from the earth, commonly Nickel and Lithium. (Will be diving into that soon)
How would globalization then impact the fair trade in battery production?
