Non-renewable resources are running out, they are also harmful to the earth. Green house gasses are trapping heat in the earth, which is causing climate change, affecting plants, animals and people. Green house gasses are caused by non-renewable resources.
Dams are very large and take up a lot of space.
This is a dam made by a beaver, it does not make hydroelectricity.
Water will turn into ice in winter and since it is not moving it can't make hydro power.
The first water weeks were used over 2000 years ago to make hydro power, that means we have been using it for over 2000 years! In 2006 hydroelectricity powered 20 percent of the worlds electricity, that is almost half of the worlds electricity.
Advantages of Hydro Power
Dams are also good because some people like to use the large lakes that form behind a dam for water sports, and other swimming activities, that people like to do in water.
Disadvantages of Hydro Power
Water will also freeze up in the winter so that means hydro power can not be made in the winter time, because the water will be frozen and water will not be moving.
