Storyboard Text

  • This is 14 year old Adarsha Shivakumar and his 12 year old sister, Apoorva.
  • Hello!
  • They're trying to stop the destruction of natural resources.
  • Hi!
  • Behold... THE JATROPHA!
  • TA-DAAA! Amazed yet? It's SO WONDERFUL!
  • The amazing thing about the Jatropha plant is that once processed and dried, OIL can be extracted from it! It's a eco-friendly biofuel!
  • Imagine what would happen if everyone used the Jatropha...
  • ... instead of oil! The Earth would be a much more green place!
  • However, the Jatropha cannot be grown in America. The siblings take their project to their hometown, India, instead.
  • But there are problems in there, and the two have to earn the trust of the farmers in order to plant the Jatropha.
  • NO! I'm not going to plant something you're giving me in MY yard! Go away! I don't care who you are, but I don't trust you one bit! You'll ruin my business! I won't do it!
  • Please! We'll prove it to you!
  • They decide to live and help with the farmers for some time. Finally, after many weeks...
  • You know what? I'll plant this Jatro- whatever thingy! What's the worst thing that could happen? I'll try it!
  • You WILL? Thank you!
  • Now there are over 13,000 seeds planted, and Adarsha and Apoorva won the President's Environmental Youth Award!
  • 2009 President's Environmental Youth Award
