The whole 5th grade is doing a presentation on energy. I am in one of the Solar power groups, we are recommending using more Solar Power in India.
Here is what I am saying during the presentation that is going to convince the judges that Solar is the best type of energy:
J Question: How does the energy source affect the society within this country/region?
Since india is using a lot of coal industries the pollution is affecting the people, plus, almost all of the families there cook with open fire. The smoke fills the house with toxic fumes that can harm people. Solar ovens are inexpensive, and can easily be made.(Plus pollution will reduce for the whole world). There is only one flaw with the Solar cooker, there is no way to cook at night. But, as Solar starts to be promoted a lot more and used, we are sure that in some period of time batteries could be included with the ovens and they could be modernized. Solar power is one of the best choices because it is healthy for our population, and the environment. We know that some places do not access a lot of sun but Asia has a lot of it. It is okay if it is not always sunny, Solar power is really easy to store up for the night and cloudy days. Many people think that Solar power is too expensive and you won’t get enough, but the sun will never run out. If india starts to use Solar power everyone in the country will be healthier and not as many infants will have birth defects. It will save our population and it will make energy cheaper in many ways.
J Question: How does the energy source affect both the local and global environment?
Solar power helps reduce pollution (like I said before).
Plus, our planet is getting hotter by the minute. Greenhouse gases are being released, like carbon dioxide and methane. It creates climate change and is slowly destroying the Atlantic’s surface. More and more ice is melting and making the water rise and make it warmer. The animals population is slowly dying. If we use Solar in india and then start to use it in other places climate change will reduce. We are all aware of global warming, but we think using the sun’s energy will reduce it. If we use Solar power, less greenhouse gases will release. We must use more Solar power, it will be healthy for the environment and other living creatures, along with ourselves.
At one point I was talking about a Solar cooker. We made one to explain how they are easy to make and cheap. Also, we needed to explain how it worked.
I hope you all think that Solar will be better for our population and earth.
