As one of the leading members of the scientific community in the U.S., you have been assigned a task by the U.S. Department of the Interior. Your task is to determine if increasing the use of hydroelectric power can help assuage or lessen the impending energy crisis.

    In this web quest you will have to read all the research provided on hydroelectric energy. You will then determine, after evaluating the pros and cons, if it could be part of the solution to the energy crisis presented in the introduction. Remember to evaluate both sides of the research. You will then write a recommendation for or against an increase in the use of hydroelectricity. Remember to write a clear thesis statement and to include five pieces of evidence based on the research.
