What is the Solution to our energy demand?


 All Energy sources have some impact on our environment, Air and water pollution, damage to public health, wildlife and habitat loss, water use, land use, and global warming emissions; when looking for the lesser of all evils, is nuclear energy the answer? Fossil fuel (petroleum, natural gas, and coal) is the main source of our energy currently. However the combustion of fossil fuels adversely affects the environment by diminishing air quality due to the concentration of greenhouse gases. The exploitation of a nonrenewable resource will eventually lead to scarcity. Therefore, an economic transition of energy source is not only suggested, but necessary.

The reality of our current energy source.

Renewable Energy.

 There are many sources we can take advantage of to produce energy; solar, wind, hydraulic, tidal wave, geothermal, biomass, and nuclear. However when looking for an energy source to power multiple infrastructures and millions of homes in a country, reliability, sustainability, renew ability and cost effectiveness are all indispensable factors to consider.

Undoubtedly our energy demand is ever growing and as a society a transition is imminent; there isn’t just one solution but a combination of these alternative is the most reasonable answer. Through education, a change in mindset, team work, and unified focused attention towards this global economic shift, we as a society can support the change we so desperately need.
