What are the good and bad things about hydroelectric power?
Good things about it: It is a renewable energy source, it is reliable, it is virtually free after you build a dam (except for the upkeep of the dam), it generates huge amounts of power, it can be used for flood control, and it creates jobs for people.
Bad things about it: (These things apply to dams with reservoirs, not run-of-the-river dams) The reservoirs displace people and the dams hold back nutrient-rich sediment that would fertilize areas further downstream.

the good things are that you can be a better shooter in the long run and you have a longer time to hunt deer. the bad things are it takes time and practice to be good. but it is the most chalenging way to hunt so if you like a chalenge hunt with a bow.
Hydro electricity is good because water is all around us. This means that we do not need to change the entire landscape dramatically. Next we have the fact that it is cheaper due to the fact that at one time there are very little personnel on the floor resulting in lower costs for the customers. Now… I look at the structure of the dams they use. The dams are strong and some built hundreds of years ago are still in use today. There are also low emissions, however, the emissions are only from the building process. Finally I turn to how much power hydro-electricity makes. With the amount of dams we have today we could power the world two times over! And for all those tax payers and people that want to keep their money, going to hydro electricity is a very good decision to make. (MORE)
Yes, most definitely. All of us fall short at times and make mistakes. Hopefully they are not big ones where others are hurt. At the right time, the right place, under the right circumstances, any one of us is capable of blowing it. This is one reason why none of us should judge others (in this sens…e). In other words, "let him who is without sin, throw the first stone." (MORE)
Hydroelectric power is good - relatively benign if proper fish protection measures are designed into the plant

Is science a good or bad thing? Different people all around the world havedifferent views and ideas on science, some support it and somedon't. In my opinion, science is a good thing. I havemany reasons for my opinion such as without science people wouldn'tbe skilful enough to develop things such a…s vaccines to preventdiseases. These vaccines save thousands of lives a year thanks soscience. Science is everywhere in our everyday lives, even cookingand gardening include it, it has transformed and shaped our livesand without it there would be so much unknown, and possibly verydangerous. In the last decade computers and technology hasdeveloped- around 90% of Americans own a computer. Electricity-just imagine the world without it. Thanks to Michael Faraday (whodiscovered it) has changed our lives. Louis Pasteur, wasexperimenting with bacteria in the 1860s, people didn't know whatcaused diseases or how to cure them- he discovered that heatingand/or disinfecting objects would kill all germs left on them.Doctors then continued to do clean their instruments and saved manylives. The periodic table is a chart of all the elements, in 1869 ascientist noticed that when you lined them up by atomic weight theyformed groups with similar properties. They used this to estimatethe existence of undiscovered elements and note errors in atomicweights. My last point is Isaac Newton, a British mathematician,among his many discoveries, his most important would probably bethe law of universal gravitation, this is how he went on to figureout why things fell to the ground and why planets orbited thesun. However, science has caused many problems inour everyday life too, such as the abuse of technology- thiscreates many problems. A couple of the problems it causes is creditcard fraud (getting money stolen), becoming too dependent ontechnology and pollution. Pollution is a major problem facing theearth today, it is slowly melting the ice caps which will thenflood the entire earth, this will happen because there's too manyfumes being let off into the air which creates a cloud, that keepshot air locked inside the earth's atmosphere which continues toheat the surface; these fumes come from things such as cars orfactories. Nuclear weapons are now being produced which are verythreatening objects, they can kill thousands just by simplydropping it. Due to humans misusing things that science has createdit has resulted in extinction of animals- animals are used fortesting. Science discovered drugs and alcohol - these led to allotof lives being ruined not only their own but other peoples too. (MORE)
Positives include the fact that it is an enormous reserve of renewable energy; negatives are that it can seriously impact an environment, and is not the most stable of sources.
landfills can be good because if we didnt have landfills there would be garbage all over our world.We need landfills to put all the garbage in. Landfills can be bad because it can polute the air. the landfills put nitrogen in the ground and that isn't good.
Prejudice is never a good thing. Having preconcieved ideas as to who a person is without knowing anything about them is just not the way things should be, to dislike someone on the basis of race, nationality, age, or gender is illogical.
Mark 10:17-18 17 As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. "Good teacher," he asked, "what must I do to inherit eternal life?" 18 "Why do you call me good?" Jesus answered. " No one is good -except God alone. Jesus says "NO ONE IS GOOD" so how do …good people do bad things or bad things happen to good people? THEY DON'T!!!!! There is no such thing as "GOOD" people. God alone is GOOD. Set the bar where it should be, then ask those carnal minded questions. No one is good is taught threw out the Bible and points to the need of that precious Blood that flowed from the ONE who is GOOD......Jesus. Sometimes believers are called to a higher calling. A calling that makes us all tremble at its thought. We live in this world and we will suffer the things of this world, but we suffer these things with the promise! Romans 8:28 "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.". The time this promise will be delivered may come when our last breath leaves and the after is seen. Rest assured it will come and you will say "IT IS GOOD". So then was it ever "Bad"? A non-bible based answer: Possibly it is a fallacy to label people as "good" (or "bad" for that matter) - most people fall on a spectrum somewhere between good and bad. Also, it's unwise to attribute to "badness" actions which can also be attributed to stupidity/ignorance/mis-interpretation of fact. To complicate things further, judging something as good or bad is subjective; things which seem good to you may not seem good to another person. (MORE)
when the dam is made for the water to go through it the area near it floods from them blocking it off for the dam being built and then when they take off the barrier and the water flows again, everything that was under the water is either gone or completely destroyed
From an investment or shareholder standpoint is a good thing A debenture demonstrates confidence in the company. It is the same thing as lending someone money with interest without that someone puttiing anything up as collateral to guarantee the loan. In other words, as the lender you are more sure …that you will be paid back plus interest and therefore do not require anything as collateral. It is the same principle as buying a government bond. As the purchaser, you know for sure you will get paid back plus interest. (MORE)

Its expensive to build, or put solar panels on house roofs. It has a long payback time. Solar panels are ugly and big. The sun isnt always out, especially in places like UK, where as Spain it would be perfect.
Opinion is divided and there are many advantages and disadvantages commonly listed by different groups. Some of the advantages include: - European Common Market - free trade within the European Union. Some argue that free trade in the EU can be achieved through the EFTA, but members of the EFTA mus…t abide by all EU laws yet they have absolutely no say in EU policy. - Freedom of movement within the EU means that going on holiday or on another form of trip (including school visits) is much easier - Being part of a large supranational organisation means that a country has a greater influence with world affairs, as they both represent themselves and are represented by the EU - The Working Time Directive means workers are protected from exploitation, in addition consumers are granted consumer rights not seen almost anywhere else in the world - Greater cooperation on issues of national security, including drug trafficking and cyber-crime - A European Health Insurance Card means that if you fall ill or get injured in another EU country, you can get the same level of medical care that a citizen of that country would get. Some disadvantages: - The larger European countries put more into the EU than they get back - The EU has taken away some powers, such as trade agreements and has led to a greater influx of immigrants in some countries. - The Common Fisheries Policy has has some negative affects on the fishing industry - The Euro has suffered from serious problems in recent years, as there was a lack of fiscal or banking union. - EU working time directive has led to higher costs to business and higher costs to consumers. - The EHI Card also means EU nationals can use the National Health Service to cover their medical costs.

there are bad thing like the fish migration because of the dams for the hydro power changing the environment and affecting land use, homes, and natural habitats in the dam area.
GOOD: - it gave us some time to prepare for an inevitable war, because if you think about it WW2 was just 21 years after the end of the first - so many could still remember the loss of a whole generation, and would do anything for prevention of another one. - many of our equipment was out of date …and need updating, plus we were not prepared for war at all, so gave us extra time to get ready. - alliances needed to be made - plus we didn't know appeasement would not prevent another war - we thought Hitler would soon be satisfied after re militarising the Rhineland, annexation of Austria and Czechoslovakia. BAD: - it gave Hitler confidence. Hitler had told his generals before the went to re militarise the Rhineland that they were to pull out if there was any resistance by the French or British. But there wasn't so it automatically showed Hitler that Britain and France were hoping to avoid war at all costs so he knew he could push them. shown with how we practically gave Hitler Czechoslovakia at a conference where the checks were not even present - we decided the fate of their country for them to avoid war.... - It highlighted the weakness of Britain, France etc. and showed how unprepared they were for war. - it just allowed Hitler to grow stronger - such as giving him check which had extensive industry, whilst Austria had a large fighting force.

currency is a good thing because each country has their own personal money system and if everything was changed to dollars there would be lots of arguments
It depends on the perspective. You are asking something like is Knife a good thing or a bad thing , or is Nuclear Power a good thing or a bad thing . Witchcraft is a powerful tool which could be used for both good or evil. When used for good purposes it is a good thing, and when used for bad purp…oses it is a bad thing. So the intention of the person who practice Witchcraft is the most important thing. Not that if Witchcraft is good or bad, but the purpose it is used for. Some monotheistic religions deny Witchcraft labeling it as "Evil". This is purely misinterpretation of old scripts. new answer: I think its nothing but bad and it is. It cant be used for good because the intentions are never good , just plain obvious. I mean, who would do such a creepy thing? It's pretty much just another word for black or dark magic, which is most definitely EVIL. (MORE)
A crayfish is bad when it is invasive, and non-native, thereby straining an ecosystem and causing negative effects upon other animals and natural processes. In California, crayfish are causing the decline of the California Newt.
Nuclear energy is powerful, and not to mention that it is renewable. it's not a bad thing.
GOOD . BAD . Saved some of the future generation.. Hard work.. Some children had a great time.. Some children were beaten by host families .. Made the country work together.. Some children sent overseas.. Made connections across the country.. Some children ran away and died.. By being move…d away from their parents, the children blamed the Germans, rightfully so, and so were keen to fight when they came of age.. Places had to be blacked out at night, scary.. Some children came from poor city backgrounds and when evacuated, their living standards improved..

Hydroelectric power does not pollute the water, and is more beneficial for the environment compared to a handful of other energy sources. It runs non-stop and is relatively cheap. However, the dams are too expensive to build. They may also interfere with fish and other life under the sea, and alter …the environment around the dam. (MORE)
Recycling can help the earth, because it is reusing paper, instead of just throwing it out and cutting down more trees. It is bad because some people may not have the proper containers in which to throw their recyclings in.
It is very expensive to get started and the required lake behind the dam floods cropland, houses, roads, orchards, and so forth.
The dams that are made in order to harness the power of the water floods the near by area !
Nuclear power cost a lot of money. It will not reduce ourdependency on oil from Middle East. It also contaminates watersupplies.
the good effects are that you are saving the water for feature use the future. the bad effects are that you are allowing the plant to get the water that they need to they will die ease
Its basically free (rain, or rain run-off ) if your lucky enough to live close to a river or mountains that have a dam that can convert it to hydro-electric power.
A hydroelectric generator requires two things to produce power; water and head. Water is obviously needed to spin the turbine, and head is the difference in altitude between the surface of the water in the reservoir above the generator and the water turbine at the generator.
Applications of uranium: - nuclear fuel for nuclear power reactors - explosive for nuclear weapons - material for armors and projectiles - catalyst - additive for glass and ceramics (to obtain beautiful green colors) - toner in photography - mordant for textiles - shielding material …(depleted uranium) - ballast - and other minor applications 1. Uranium is a possible polluting agent of the natural environment. 2. Uranium is a toxic and radioactive chemical element. 3. Uranium release radium and radon. (MORE)
no but they generally go hand in hand. a dam is built to form a reservoir and increase the height so there is a height difference for power generation. but a dam may just hold water for irrigation or to even out the demand of a river. power generation does not need a dam if you can get water from a …high level to a lower one naturally (MORE)
Its not neccessarily a bad thing, but its not a good thing either. Using water for energy can ruin habitats by flooding and not letting water flow naturally.

technology is a bad" thing in the sense that it creates an unsustainable evolution of mankind in which we find ourselves so dependant on technology that if we were to be without it, the human race would not be able to survive... Although it is a long way off, eventually humans will loose their basic… natural survival instincts and be completely incapable of living in the natural environment for which we were designed because we will have adapted to a technological world. For example, if someone were to launch an EMP at the U.S. military, most of it's firepower would be rendered useless and they would be overcome and defeated by guerrilla soldiers who had been forced to learn to live without technology and had learnt to live naturally Eventually, there will no longer be people such as guerrilla soldiers, who can thrive without technology, because it will become so readily available. On the other hand however, technology is great in the short term because it makes our live so much easier... Imagine living without television, fridges or dishwashers (and if you can bear to imagine it...A world without X-Box). The only risk is that we find ourselves suddenly without technology, say; the oil runs out and there isn't another source of energy, or perhaps the entire world's computers are made useless by a huge computer virus. A smaller scale, microcosm of this, might be as simple as going for a walk and forgetting the hand held satellite navigation. If we had never had a sat nav, we would have learned to use the sun and time to tell us which direction to walk to civilisation. But if you were dependant on it, you may find yourself standing in the middle of nowhere, with no way to get help. My point being that technology is excellent assuming we are never without it, but i think we should learn to live without technology to some extent, so that we will never find ourselves helplessly dependant upon it.

If hydro power is available, go for it. Most places don't have enough water or height to produce much hydro though. I hope nobody has built nuclear where hydro is available.
POSITIVES: 1) The dictators help the country to develop and to get strongerfrom its earlier debts. 2) The dictators can control riots and protests through the policemaking everything seem under control. 3)They can change peoples lives and the city forever. Note - if more positives please note them… under positive section. NEGATIVES: 1) Some of the dictators are ruthless, so they murder lots ofpeople, including most of his/her party members. 2)Many people starved, suffered and died during thesedictatorships. 3)Some dictators exceed their dictatorship rule when they are notsupposed to do that. Note - like before note negatives under the negative section. THANK YOU! (MORE)
Good reasons for tourism . Â· The tourism can bring money into the local community therefore they can develop more. . Â· The tourism can mean big boost in the companies nearby. More visitors means more people staying in the hotels and eating in the restaurants. . Bad reasons for tourism … . Â· The villages can become overcrowded. . Â· The pollution from the cars can rot famous monuments erasing lots of history. . Â· People leave gates open when walking through the farmers fields. This is a free ticket for animals to leave and be free. . Â· As there are so many people there will be more litter. This is harmful for the environment. Animals such as birds can put their heads in side them and suffocate themselves. (MORE)

Hydroelectricity (excuse me if I am wrong) uses purely wind power to generate electricity. This means that the breeze has to be particularly stong for the turbines to turn in order for electricity to be generated. I guess what the biggest disadvantage of hydroelectricity is that it relies solely on …the weather and those things that rely on the weather only are not completely reliable. Another disadvantage of hydroelectricity is that it is incredibly expensive to set up the turbines. The repair costs then must also be very high. The last problem I could think of is that turbines are usually placed in rural, countryside areas which creates a whole new problem. It may not contribute to global warming as it does not create any pollution, however, it produces a lot of sound pollution and also becomes a bit of an eyesore when a big white turbine is placed in a landscape inhabitted by lush, green rolling hills and beautiful countrysides.
