Storyboard Text

  • Themal Power
  • Nuclear Power
  • Hydro Power
  • IN THERMAL POWER STATIONS, FOSSIL FUELS ARE BURNT INTO HEAT THAT HEATS UP WATER TURNING IT INTO STEAM THAT IS PUSH IN A HIGH SPEED THAT RUNS THROUGH A TURBINE THAT IS SPUN AND THE MECHANICAL ENERGY IS SENT TO THE GENERATOR TO TURN IT INTO ELECTRICAL ENERGY.
  • When Thermal Power is Dangerous
  • IN NUCLEAR POWER STATIONS, URANIUM AND THORIUM RODS ARE SPLIT APART BY AN INCIDENT NEUTRON. THE INCIDENT NEUTRON HITS THE NUCLEUS OF A URANIUM OR THORIUM ATOM AND SPLITS IT IN TWO PARTS AND CREATE HEAT AND LIGHT THAT HEATS UP WATER THAT TURNS INTO STEAM THAT SPINS A TURBINE THAT CREATES MECHANICAL ENERGY THAT IS SENT TO THE GENERATOR TO TRANSFORM IT.
  • When Nuclear Power is Dangerous
  • IN A HYDRO POWER DAM,  ENERGY IS MADE BY USING THE ENERGY OF FALLING WATER. THE WATER IS STORED BEHIND THE DAM THAT IS CALLED A RESERVOIR. THE WATER IS THEN FORCED INTO A TUNNEL CALLED A PENSTOCK. THE WATER GOES AT A HIGH SPEED AND TURN THE TURBINE. BUT, THIS TURBINE IS DIFFERENT BECAUSE INSTEAD OF SHARP BLADES, HYDRO POWER DAMS HAVE CUP SHAPED BLADES.
  • HYDRO POWER'S DOWN SIDE
  • R.I.P (>_<)
  • THERMAL POWER CAN BE HEATING UP TOO MUCH FOSSIL FUELS AT A TIME THAT THE WHOLE POWER STATION CAN BLOW ON FIRE AND DESTROY THE POWER THAT WOULD WASTE MONEY AND WOULD HAVE TO BUILD A NEW ONE.
  • NUCLEAR WASTE IS KEPT IN AN AIRTIGHT LEAD CONTAINER UNDER GROUND. IF ITS  POISONOUS LEAKS, IT WILL REMAIN IN THE GROUND FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS TO COME. THE POISON IN THE EARTH WILL SPREAD TO OUR CROPS AND MAKE IT SO THEN WE CANNOT EAT ANY MORE CROPS ANYMORE.
  • DAMS ARE VERY DANGEROUS FOR FISH ESPECIALLY DURING MIGRATION TIME. MANY FISH ARE KILLED A DAY. FOR EXAMPLE, DID YOU KNOW THAT IN THE COLUMBIA RIVER 1,000,000 FISH ARE KILLED IN JUST ONE DAY. SCIENTISTS ARE TRYING THIER BEST TO CREATE FISH FREINDLY DAMS.
