Episode Description

How much do you know about the White House? Ruhani takes us behind the scenes to inform us about fascinating and historical details that most Americans are unaware of. Dr. Jill Biden’s Christmas décor this year is inspired by the small acts of kindness and experiences that lifted our spirits throughout the pandemic, rooms throughout the White House are decorated to reflect the Gifts from the Heart that unite us all. After a tour of the building, she talks about the Paris Agreement and COP 26 Climate Change Conference. Co-host, Nihal, continues the conversation with information about renewable energy. Renewable Energy is energy that is collected from renewable resources such as water, sunlight, wind, tides, waves, and geothermal energy. Renewable energy plays an important role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Using renewable energy can help to reduce energy imports and reduce fossil fuel use, which is the largest source of U.S. carbon dioxide emissions. Nihal gives examples on how teens and young adults can reduce their carbon footprint. In segment three, our Express Yourself! poet, Sharanya shares her original poem called “The Wind, The Water, The Earth”. She compares becoming a competent writer to renewable energy. Renewable energy uses what the Earth has already provided to harvest energy. To become a better writer, the first step is to read or listen to pre-existing literary works.
