Alternative Energy is the way to go for the future
I find it amazing that the world is still using dirty energy when we have so many types of renewable energies. My arguments are.... Solar is cheap and clean, Uranium has massive supplies and is extremely powerful, Wind power is free and is everywhere and Tidal power is very reliable.
My first and most important point is that solar power is very clean and very cheap. Why use the burning of Coal and realise all those greenhouse gases into the air when theirs Solar power. Coal will run out someday so what are we waiting for. I say lets change now! Did you now that 1KW of solar energy is the equivalent of 300 pounds of 135 kg of Carbon Dioxide being released into the air! That’s what I mean by eco friendly.
Second of all Uranium has massive supplies and is hugely powerful. Why use non-renewable energy when all that free Energy is lying there. Did you now that 1 tonne produces more energy than several million tonnes of coal! So lets go nuclear before its to late.
Another point is that Wind Power is very efficient

The meaning of the ECO X-BOX is that we kids can combine the love for gaming and the environment, so every time you score a point you help the environment by planting a seed for trees so we can breathe cleaner air.
