Kevanta TompkinsFinal DraftTaeTownTaetown is a town that is far, far away.
Lately, my town has been short onresources and those who reside in my town are very sad, and those who travel tomy town are heartbroken. We currently depend on natural resources, but they arerapidly running out. As the mayor of Tae town, I’ve decided that we are goingto stop using non-renewable resources and begin using renewable resources. Ihave decided to use the following renewable resources: Hydropower, Biofuel-Ethanol(Biomass), and Geothermal energy.
These resources are natural resources, butthey can be replaced at the same speed that they are used, although they may beexpensive, we can benefit from the resources listed above in the future. Hydropoweris created by a water cycle (Dam). I’ve selected this resource because theresidents and guest of my town need electricity, but the dams that are used aredesigned to last for decades. Although dams can be expensive to build, they arebuilt to a very high standard. Dams are created so that electricity can beproduced at the same flow in which it is used. Dams must be able to work fordecades in order to make money. Hydropower doesn’t create air pollution, whichis great for the environment within my town.Thegas stations all over the town have been running out of fuel, so I have decidedthat we are going to use biofuel- ethanol in order for residents and travelersto transport from one place to the next.
Biofuel is created from various plantmaterial, and it doesn’t produce a lot of greenhouse gases. Fossil fuelsproduce more greenhouse gases then biofuel-ethanol. It is very expensive to produce, but it haseconomic security. Economic security means that we have a set amount of moneyto be able to supply Tae Town with this renewable resource. Biofuel requiresthe use of different fertilizers, but people need transportation.Inthe winter the residents and travelers will need heat, so the third energysource I have selected for my town is Geothermal energy. Geothermal energy iscreated by steam. It also requires no fuel, there are a few bad thing thingsthat come along with the uses of geothermal energy such as location and thecost of powering the pump, but they need heat to survive.
Geothermal energy isfound within the earth. The hot lava and steam from a volcano helps produceheat to help heat our homes and businesses.Afterall, even though the tax payers of my town will be paying for the renewableresources, they need them to survive. So, with the resources that I’ve decidedthat are best for my town are Hydropower for electricity, Biofuel-Ethanol fortransportation, and Geothermal for heating. I didn’t select fossil fuels, coal,or oil because eventually they will run out.
Those are natural resources andthey will pollute the environment and harm society. I feel like the communitywill be upset they will have to pay for it, but in the end they won’t be inuproar because they will be benefiting from it.
