Question by : ELOCUTION-HELP — Will solar energy power the world? HELP :)?
i have to speak for ‘for’ the topic.
it is a kind-of debate
.its after two days.

i will start be saying why we need energy and
how harmful it is for all of us.
then i would say why solar energy is an excellent method to make the world a better place.
then bout individual participation
then about various projects globally.

i need to know
how much energy is consumed world wide and
how much money will it take to set up solar ‘farms’
is the pattern ^ right?
which point i should concentrate on?

thankyou :)

  1. solar energy is great technology, but it cant be the other one, talk about wind turbines, electro magnetic energy that can propel cars on the road and most important isthe efficiency of all those objects

  2. They need to improve solar panels because they are really bad at producing electricity.

  3. Steffani, there are many points, here are a few: Solar power is a renewable energy source, meaning the fuel continues to be generated, or renewed each day, or year, and does not run out. Our home has been powered by the wind and sun for 11 years now, and still is. We enjoy not having to pay an electric bill, and knowing that for us to watch TV for an hour, no coal was burned, and no additional pollution was added to the air as a result.

    Solar power is spread pretty evenly over the middle third of our globe, which just happens to be where all of the people are. This gives people in Bogota equal access to energy as people in Boca Raton. Making solar panels and other devices that utilize solar power is a higher tech profession than drilling for oil, or mining for coal, and there are more jobs involved. Switching more of our grid power over to solar would mean putting more people to work, and increasing the education base of our country because the work requires certain skills. I would personally love to take all those people out of our coal mines, send them to school, and find them jobs in a factory making solar panels. Nobody would have to die in a mining accident again trying to find fuel for our hungry power plants, they could work in the safety of a factory building breathing clean air and not having to worry about another cave in. Globally, we kill hundreds of people each year in coal mine accidents, so far the only deaths in solar power have been a handful of people who have fallen off the roofs of their homes trying to install panels themselves.

    Since solar power is spread over most of the globe, there would never be a need to ship, or trade it, and as a result it’s pretty hard to have any kind of a fight over it. Oil and coal resources are generally piled up in a few places on earth, such as Russia, Saudi Arabia and Brazil. This gives those countries, and the richer governments that rule them more horsepower in bargaining for other resources on our planet. These are the things that wars are made of. As a result, we not only have to use a good portion of these found energy sources shipping them around, but we now have to use military resources to protect the shipments, which takes up further resources that could be used feeding people and improving our medical facilities and schools for example.

    As we continue to evolve as a society, people are constantly trying to figure out what the best energy source is going forward, just as you are today. The best source will be a diverse on, some wind, solar, biomass, hydro, and even some coal, oil and nuclear should be part of the mix. You are probably not old enough to remember the Arab Oil Embargo of 1973, I am. Gas stations ran out of gas, people left their cars stranded and couldn’t get to work or home, blackouts occured in many parts of our high tech country. Imagine if that happened again one day and we only imported 10% of our energy instead of 60%, it would be a minor inconvenience.

    There of course is the fact that basing more of our power from renewable sources like solar would cause us to emit less pollution, yet another benefit. There are probably other reasons, but I think you get the picture. Good luck on your debate Steffanni, and take care, Rudydoo
