Pros and Cons of Fossil Fuels

Greentumble

One of the driving factors in the industrial revolution was the introduction of coal energy. Coal provided a more efficient and dense energy source than burning wood. Since the industrial revolution coal has given way to oil and natural gas as two prominent energy sources.

Alternative Energy – Things you didn’t know

Eco Friendly Daily

As our energy needs rise, as our supplies of fossil fuels run out and as the state of our planet become more precarious, we increasingly need to look at alternative energy sources to meet our requirements and to allow our modern lifestyles. Solar Energy. The sun, a huge burning ball of hydrogen, outputs vast amounts of energy every second. Even the minute fraction that falls on the Earth’s surface is more than enough to supply all our energy needs.

Energy [R]evolution: A Sustainable U.S.A. Energy Outlook

The Green Changemakers

The newly released Greenpeace report, Energy [R]evolution: A Sustainable U.S.A. Energy Outlook , details how the United States can cut greenhouse gas emissions to the levels we must reach in order to prevent the worst effects of global warming and simultaneously build a sustainable economy. The Energy [R]evolution U.S. can use energy more efficiently and increase renewable energy generating capacity to cut current C02 emissions levels some 23% by 2020 and 85% by 2050.
