Energy Political Ad Poster

You and your team will research three types of power plants- coal, fission, and fusion. Currently, in Georgia, we use coal-fired power plants and nuclear fusion power plants to create electricity. A new source of electricity that may be useful in the near future is nuclear fusion power plants. Your team’s job is to research information on the three types of plants and choose the one you think is best for Georgia and create a political advertisement describing the type of power plant, how the energy is produced and the pros of your choice, along with the cons of the other two. Remember, you are trying to convince people to vote one way on the issue!
