  • The Benefits Of Sustainable Energy

    The world needs a sustainable energy source, there are no two ways about it. In my opinion, with the current infrastructure of the United States, the only way the US can generate enough energy effectively and efficiently is by combining nuclear, hydroelectric, solar, wind, and biofuels. Nuclear can generate a solid baseline in which solar can add on to during the day when energy usage is near its highest. The rest of the sources can add onto what is being produced by nuclear and can then match the energy fluctuations so we aren 't over or under producing. Also, having multiple power sources will help maximize the effectiveness of where we put them. For example, we would put solar panels on top of houses that face the sun, or in deserts. Wind…

  • The Challenges Of The Article: A Path To Sustainable Energy

    As stated in the article “A Path to Sustainable Energy by 2030,” the three main sources of renewable energy are technologies that consist of zero-emissions of greenhouse gases and air pollutants of their entire life cycle (Jacobson, 87). Of course there are several renewable energy sources, but the three main resources listed in the article are wind, water and sunlight (WWS). To this day, wind supplies up to 51% of the energy demand with about 3.8 million wind turbines installed (Jacobson, 88).…

  • The Impact Of Transition To Sustainable Energy

    Introduction The contemporary scientific consensus is that the Earth’s average surface temperature is increasing significantly and it is caused by human actions (Climate Change, 2016). This would lead to several negative economic and social repercussions (Musk, 2015). In the light of the inevitability of an end to the supply of fossil fuels and of the considerable danger in not employing any mitigation efforts, this essay analyzes the reason why the transition to sustainable energy sources is…

  • Inverse Relationship Between Sustainable Energy And Global Warming

    Sustainable energy is any renewable energy source, hence the term ‘sustainable,’ this category of energy has numerous forms, such as wind energy, water energy, and solar energy. The institution of sustainable energy can be used to help lower our carbon emissions if sustainable energy is used as an alternative to unsustainable energy, such as fossil fuel, and not used in addition to unsustainable energy. If the world achieves a level of sustainable energy as an alternative to unsustainable ones,…

  • The Benefits Of Nonrenewable Energy

    fossil fuels for renewable energy. Problems including the release of harmful gases into the atmosphere and the inevitable depletion of these nonrenewable energy sources have motivated a handful of countries to start the transition. Notably, Sweden has goals to “increase renewable energy to 50 percent of national supply by 2020,” reducing its need for environmentally harmful, nonrenewable sources, like oil ("Energy Use in Sweden"). While Sweden has made great strides in switching to renewable…
