Persuasive Writing: It Is good To Save Energy:

What is saving energy? Are we using energy in the right ways? Do you know how to save energy? Well if you don’t know then you have to watch this movie about ‘How To Save Energy and Why’. Have you ever thought about saving energy? Saving energy is the key to lighting up our world. Saving energy means decreasing the amount of energy we use today. Generating energy requires precious natural resources, for instance coal, oil or gas. Day by day we use more energy then we can think. If you try to count up to how many times you save energy, you will get lost in the maze.

Firstly: You SHOULD watch this movie because using less energy helps us to preserve these resources and make them last longer for the future! Using less energy IS important because one day we might run out of energy! However a heavy coat of dust on a light bulb can block up to half of the light.

Secondly You WILL watch this movie because saving energy can be the key to what makes life possible. What is climate change? Is it real? Climate change IS 

 real. We’re seeing the effects all around us. Polar ice melting, sea levels rising, and extreme weather events. Climate change is the result of greenhouse gases. Principally carbon dioxide, building up in our atmosphere to trap heat. Climate change means a change in the world’s climate. This is what climate change is.

My final point: You HAVE to watch this movie because. On one hand(metaphorically) renewable energy is energy that comes from natural resources such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal heat. As a result, with 10% coming from traditional biomass, which is mainly used for heating, and 3.4% of hydroelectricity. But on the other hand the use of windpower is is increasing at an annual rate of 20%. Islands getting smaller and smaller because of climate change, such as, sea levels rising and taking over their land. Saving energy has changed my life and it will change yours.

Do you know think that it’s important to save energy? Why do you think this is important? Have I persuaded you to make you THINK that saving energy is a good thing? If you were learning about how to save energy. Would you watch this? WOULD YOU IF YOU HAD THE CHANCE TO? If it was the only chance for you? The only opportunity left? if I can do it, you can too!  For more information you can go to these websites:

WALT Stay Safe Around Electricity.

My Safety Message Advert:

Do you like having a microwave, or a fridge, or lights in your house? It is awesome that we have electricity at our fingertips. But do you know how to be safe around electricity? If you have little children, be careful that they don’t pull wires out of the wall or plugs. Never play near power lines. They are dangerous for little children. Never play on dangerous things. REMEMBER DANGER AND WARNING MEANS TO STAY AWAY! Thank-you for listening to this safety message.

The History About The Plot....


THE HISTORY ABOUT THE PLOT...

On 5 November 1605, two years after the death of Queen Elizabeth 1, soldiers discovered a man called Guy Fawkes in a cellar under the Houses of Parliament. With him were at least twenty barrels of Gunpowder. Guy fawkes was arrested and tortured. At last he gave way and told his torturers about the plot to blow up the Parliament together with the ing, James 1, his ministers and Members of Parliament. Guy Fawkes was a Roman Catholic who had been angered by the failure of King James, who was after all the son of the Catholic Mary Queen of Scot’s to grant more religious toleration to Catholics. He had joined with a group of four other Catholics led by Robert Catesby in the plot to kill the King. Catesby had made the mistake of inviting other Catholics to join the plot. One of these was called Francis Tresham. Tresham wrote a letter to his brother in-law Lord Monteagle warning him not to go to Parliament and Monteagle told the government.The plot was foiled at the eleventh hour. Some of the plotters escaped, some turned King’s Evidence and reported on the rest.The unlucky Fawkes was taken in chains to the Tower of London and beheaded at dawn. He was hanged, drawn and quartered. At a public venue, he was then chopped into quarters. The charge was treason, though some people in England prefer to remember Guy as “the only man ever to enter Parliament with honest intentions.”
