Einstein Energy Posters…

Due 2/22

“Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius — and a lot of courage — to move in the opposite direction”

Albert Einstein is largely responsible for the ability to use Nuclear Power…

Nuclear Power is now sometimes used for everyday energy needs (france has been running mainly on nuclear power for many years with few complications). 

Global Warming is caused primarily by the release of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere after burning fossil fuels (coal, oil).

In the spirit of the above quote (by Einstein) you will be research one of the listed alternative energies listed below. 

Each have their benefits and costs (both monetary and environmental).  You will be creating a poster weighing the pros and cons of each.

Finally you will think in your mind based on the above quote…What would Einstein do?  Would he think that the benefits outweigh the dangers?

Geothermal, Biomass, Solar, Nuclear (Uranium), Wind, Hydropower, Hydrogen…

Each poster should include index cards for the following;

How the energy is produced?

What are the benefits?

What are the dangers?

What would Einstein do? Would he think the benefits of this energy outweighs the costs?
