Why is Renewable Energy Better?
Every time you switch on your lights, or use any electrical device, natural resources are consumed to generate the electricity that you use. A staggering 98 percent of electricity in the United States comes from non-renewable resources such as coal, natural gas, and nuclear power.
Using non-renewable resources to create electricity produces more harmful emissions linked to global warming than any other human activity. The remaining two percent of U.S. electricity generated from clean, renewable resources—such as wind, solar, geothermal, small hydro-electric and biomass—produce dramatically less air pollution and have significantly smaller environmental impacts.Find Renewable Energy for Your Home or Organization: http://www.green-e.org/base/re_products
