Energy For The Future

Kanyon Hartley

Overview

  • The energy from the sun is recovered by solar panels.
  • This is considered renewable because we will never run out of sunshine as long as the human race is alive.

  • The energy from the wind is recovered by turbines .
  • This is considered renewable because wind is caused by uneven heating of the earth's surface, which is caused by the sun.

  • The energy from water is recovered by hydro-power dams.
  • This is considered renewable because we will always have a river to build a dam in.

Persuasive Paragraph

  • This paragraph is about solar energy.
  • Solar energy is the reason we are all alive today; it is the main source of energy for all life forms.
  • Solar power is one of very few sources of energy that are completely free.
  • Only 0.01% of the energy produced by nuclear fusion in the sun PER SECOND would be needed to satisfy the entire population of the earth’s energy requirements.

  • This is the energy of the future because it's free and it doesn't put out ozone.
  • Why aren't people using solar energy yet? They are, just you have to pay to get them installed which costs a lot of money.
