Storyboard Text

  • Global warming is slowly heating up the Earth, and fossil fuels are only making the situation worse.
  • That's why we should switch to hydropower for our energy needs.
  • Hydroelectricity is a clean, renewable source of energy that emits few pollutants and doesn’t damage the environment.
  • In fact, according to the Department of Energy, hydroelectricity utilizes the power of flowing water to turn a turbine, and generate electricity.
  • The Department of Energy says that hydropower can provide back-up power, as in certain kinds of hydropower, such as impoundment hydropower, water is dammed, and creates a large reservoir. These can be opened and closed, depending on the energy required at any certain time.
  • Also, as hydropower can generate power to the grid immediately, they can provide back-up power during power outages.
  • In fact, the Department of Energy explains that hydroelectric power relies on the water cycle, which is driven by the sun. The sun rises and sets every day, making hydropower very reliable.
  • Finally, Hydropower is very reliable.
  • However, a dam that creates a reservoir may obstruct fish migration. They can also change natural water temperatures, water chemistry, river flow characteristics, and silt loads.
  • But you forgot that the US Department of Energy has sponsored research that could reduce fish deaths to lower than 2%, in comparison to the current 5% kill rate.
  • We should stop looking to fossil fuels; hydroelectricity is what will truly carry us through the future.
