You don’t realize, that when you drive your gas-powered cars, you are slowly destroying the air we breathe You don’t realize, that when you heat your home using coal, you are polluting the land and water for the rest of the living things on Earth
You don’t realize that you are responsible for the air you breathe, the water you drink, and the land you share with all plants, humans, and animals! Fossil fuels, such as coal, natural gas, and oil, are non-renewable resources That means that once they’re gone, they’re gone They can also be very bad on the environment, but there is a solution It’s called hydropower In summary, hydropower is created when a dam releases water from a reservoir
The water flows through turbines, that activates a generator, that produces electricity Once the facility is built, it is inexpensive to run Water is the only thing needed to power it, and water is a clean fuel, unlike oil Hydropower causes no direct air pollution and it provides electricity for decades So, all we ask is that you keep this in mind the next time you go to a gas station: You could be the change
You could tell your friends, family, and neighbors that you are playing a part in saving the world Make a splash in this ever-changing world of energy by switching to hydropower!
