This week we have been learning about renewable energy. We have learnt that renewable energy is powered by sources that don’t run out like sunlight, water and wind. On Thursday we watched a BTN clip on renewable energy and read comments that children had written in an online forum in response to the clip. We then thought about our own opinions on the use of renewable energy. Using the persuasive techniques we had learnt, we created our own opinion pieces on this issue. Here are some examples:
In my opinion I think all of the world must use renewable energy. Coal will make greenhouse gases and pollute the entire universe. Only a fool would want to pollute the the universe and make green house gases. It will also kill our animals. So if you don’t want to kill our precious animals, use renewable energy. For the good of the world we must all use renewable energy. If you’re not going to use renewable energy who is? – Will and Zion
In our opinion, we must use renewable energy. If we use coal it will be harmful for
our planet and cause pollution. Coal will run out if we use too much and we won’t have any for later. Animals will die because burnt coal will produce smoke which will kill our animals.
It will also cause bad health for others and will have a harmful effect on our amazing planet. – Anuk and Kanav
Why use dirty black coal when you can use clean energy like solar energy, hydro energy and wind energy? My opinion is we must use renewable energy rather then coal. So save the earth from climate change and chemicals. Only a fool would use coal! – Aum and Valentine
In my opinion Australia must use renewable energy because it is sustainable for our future. This won’t harm our environment. The government must donate money to create renewable energy. Just think of the innocent Animals which suffocate from burning coal, it will be better if we use other techniques. – Anna and Insia
