            • kerosene  lamps are  poisonous
              • toxic and dangerous
            • solar cells are 'green'
              • use the sun's energy to make energy (light)
                • no gasses produced
                  • improves global warming
                    • more money will be invested in the solar cell industry
                      • spent on improving the quality and efficiency of the cells
