“My drawing is about Coal Mining Power Plants. They’re becoming a problem to our everyday lives and overall health; they’re increasing our pollution, and decreasing our resources. Power plants use millions of gallons of water each day to make sure we have power while they are water shortages, only 1% of earth’s water being drinkable. There’re several different ways to have power and prevent shortage of waters and oils, such as solar panels. Coal has sulfur dioxide which can be harmful to living things, and with the amount of smoke going into the air isn’t helping. Power plants are also causing an increase in temperature, so animals who survive in colder areas are suffering, such as polar bears. So many glaciers and homes are being destroyed for animals.”
