Alternative Energy Poster: Extension
Complete this extension assignment for a maximum of 15 points extra credit. After all groups have given presentations, write a persuasive paper (250 words minimum) on one of the following topics:
● Do you think we can change the status quo in time to prevent serious consequences from global warming? Explain why, giving supporting arguments.
● You have $10,000 to invest. Which of the energy resources would you invest in for the long term (20 years)? Explain why, giving supporting arguments.
● Most of the alternative resources we studied are not ready for large-scale implementation today. Some proponents think we should start building nuclear fission reactors as fast as we can, to reduce immediately our greenhouse gas emissions. These “temporary” reactors would act as a bridge to the future of economically feasible clean alternative energy. Do you think this is a good idea? Explain why, giving supporting arguments.
