The fact that we don’t realize how much
energy we can use that is renewable.
That people on the coasts all over the world can
be powering their houses with clean “green”
Now we can use the 70% of the earth’s surface
to make energy. Without digging and killing
First invented by the Egyptians and Romans
tidal energy has helped us to build
monuments, open gateways, or other things to
hard for us to do.
Now a days we have made big metal turbines
that sit in the oceans and spin as water passes
over the blades like the wind turbines.
These tidal turbines can make enough
electricity to power 200 to 1000 homes
depending on the size.
My argument is the tidal energy is the best
kind of energy.
That is better then fossil fuels and all the other
It is better than fossil fuels because we still get
a lot of jobs for our economy.
We don’t have to go digging and risk other
equal or worse oil spills treating the ecosystem.
We don’t have as many deaths or injuries for
the turbines as we do for fossil fuels, like coal,
more than 100,000 coal miners dead in the last
century from cave-ins, lungs cancer, rock
slides, equipment malfunction, and explosions.
Tidal energy is better than the other renewable
energy sources because the tidal energy is more
predictable and constant.
There is also more area on the earth to put the
tidal turbines than the area on the earth for
other renewable energies.
Who were the first to invent and use the tidal
The Egyptians and the Romans
On an average how many homes can one
200 to 1000 homes
What is one way that tidal energy is better then
Less deaths/Better for ecosystem/still provides about
the same number of jobs.
