  • Frracking: The Benefits And Cons Of Fracking

    Ever since the industrial revolution, the world has been involved in a constant struggle. This everlasting debate between economic growth and environmental protection has come to light once again with the expansion of hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking. While fracking was first used in the 1940s, it has not been widespread until recently when it was joined with horizontal drilling (Hoffman, n.d., para. 1). It is a process used to acquire natural gas previously inaccessible with more…

  • Renewable Energy Essay

    was once green and full of nature. In a few centuries, technology and human development swiftly influenced our dependence on fossil fuels. Massive consumption of oil, coal, and gas drastically transformed our settlements into powerhouses for further progression. We now have electricity for lighting, gasoline for transportation, and coal for power sources. However, fossil fuels are being consumed at a rate faster than we can recover. The only possible key is to achieve a more balanced energy mix…

  • Environmental Pollution Essay

    one cannot take combustion for granted since it pollutes the environment. Hence, in order to understand what fuel would be suited for the U.S. economy, one needs to understand the three major energy fuels combusted daily in the United States, namely coal, oil, and nuclear…

  • The Benefits Of Nuclear Energy

    approximately six-million tonnes of uranium fuel and a person in the united states, on average, would consumes only thirty grams of uranium per year. Oil, on the other hand, has been determined, if used at its current rate, to only last us forty more years. Coal will only be able to last us until the year 2088 and while that seems far away we need to think about future generations("When Will Oil Run Out"). This informations steers me to believe that nuclear fuel is plentiful and a…

  • Positive Effects Of Nuclear Technology

    When juxtaposed with other methods of electricity generation, such as coal fired and natural gas power stations, it is clear as to why nuclear power is a popular choice among power companies. Unlike the process of burning fossil fuels, nuclear reactions have been proven to release absolutely zero carbon emissions, reducing the overall greenhouse emissions from America (“Introduction”). Duke Energy also reports that, “Among coal, natural gas and oil, nuclear power plants have had the lowest…

  • The Pros And Cons Of The Nuclear Energy Market

    In August 2016, a New York State Board agreed to grant a multi-billion dollar subsidy to the state’s nuclear energy sector. This subsidy is to be government mandated through the forcing of utility companies to purchase and pay nuclear power plants in zero-emission credits, thereby subsidizing nuclear plants’ operations. By creating this subsidy, the government is effectively saving three nuclear power plants in Upstate New York from permanent closures; however, at the expense of the tax-payer…

  • Henry Ford's Use Of The Assembly Line

    The earliest automobiles were powered by steam; however, it was a very poor power source due to its price, weight, start-up times, and tendency to explode. The development of automobiles was limited until a better power source was established. In 1834 the first practical motor was developed by Moritz Jacobi (Doppelbauer). Even though this was a motor the motor wasn’t strong enough to drive an automobile. In 1884 a man named Thomas Parker built the first practical electric automobile (“World's…

  • Nuclear Fusion Disadvantages

    Introduction: With the constant rise for global energy, there is a huge demand for environmentally clean and cheap energy sources. Now, for many years power generated by nuclear power plants has been a reliable source for energy but the current amount of uranium, which is the fuel will satisfy the energy requirements for the next 200 years. Also, the nuclear reactors are not very efficient as not all of the uranium mined is being used to generate power. In this essay, I will discuss an alternate…

  • The Carbon Emission Curve Is Exponential Analysis

    processed depends on many factors leaving “energy experts to differentiate oil, coal and gas resources” in reserves. These reserves are broken down in proven reserves, probable reserves, and possible reserves, all of which probably exceed the guesses being made. Meaning, “that the world has far more fossil fuels than it can safely burn”. This is even greater if you include “all the tar sands, heavy oil, kerogen, shale gas, coal-bed methane, and other unconventional sources are included”. Leaving…
