The video, Solar Arrest, was made to increase awareness about the need for alternative energy, such as solar energy. We want people to learn that solar energy is a better alternative for energy because it reduces your carbon footprint.
Some of you might not know what a carbon footprint is, or even why it is important. Well every time you turn on the lights, or plug in your device, it uses electricity. Here in Lansing, our electricity is made from burning coal. And guess what? Burning coal releases CO2 into the atmosphere. Is that a bad thing? Too much CO2 is a bad thing because it gets trapped in the atmosphere and contributes to climate change.
