I have to do a 5 minute speech in school, and I chose my topic to be something along the lines of banning snowmobiles in certain areas such as national parks (why?) and what the industry has done to limit pollution

need some ideas..


thanks

Heh, in college i also did a big paper on snowmobiles and their impact on our environment, etc. It was the easiest report i ever did, lots of topics available, plus it really does effect us in every day life.

You could talk about how studs are banned on many paved trails, and how that became to be. It's especially frustrating that some of these trails were founded by snowmobile clubs, and then when a city paves it, they basically kicked them off their own trail. Things like that.
Add stuff about Yellowstone national park and thier snowmobile ban and how it effects all the businesses and local economy. Their are alot of cool facts on that. Another thing is to talk about the new high-tech engines available with extremely low emissions and how the future of the sport is going to shape up. Things like 4-stroke engines, and direct injection, etc... If you need props for the report, there are plenty of pictures online you could use.

I think you could easily get a 5 minute speech on these topics. Good luck!

LOL, I gave you that topic like a week ago and you still haven't started...

Like MegaMan said, there is more than just the pollution part, there are the businesses associated with snowmobiling that are affected when bans like that in Yellowstone occur.

thas kind of what i want to do, i just have to think of a way to sum up my speech into one sentence for the controlling idea or whatever, and am having a very difficult time doing that.
