This was just one atom! ... ... middle of paper ... ... of money in the long run and possibly allow governments to give back to a deserving nation. With this new perspicacity into nuclear power, our impending energy crisis is no longer a quandary. Our roads will be satiated with electric cars buzzing every which way, and our skies will be luminous thanks to newer, cleaner, and less dependent energy.

Renewable energy comes into play because according to several scientists, easily retracted fossil fuels will be used up during the 21st century. (Lerner) Renewable energy is energy that can be harnessed without causing damages to air or water pollution, human health, global warming, and water and land use which is Vice Versa for Fossil Fuels. Alternative energy should be our main goal going forward, reminding us that we can’t always depend on the things we do now. Fossil Fuels are nonrenewable energy sources that include: coal, petroleum, and natural gas. They provide more than 85% of the world’s energy including 80% of U.S.’s energy use.
