Renewable Power Sources The law of conservation which state that energy remains constant it cannot be created or destroyed. However, it possible to transferred energy from one object to another(Conservation of entergy (n.d). It has been said that “When potential energy is converted into any of the six forms of kinetic energy, the total energy in the system before the conversion equals the total energy after conversion” as noted by (Conservation of entergy (n.d). How the law of conservation relative to energy use and energy conversions it has been stated that mass and energy are believed to be equivalent because one can be converted into the other. Renewable power sources are believed to be the way of the future, however, as of now the United States relies mainly on fossil fuels (oil, coal and natural gases) as it sole energy source. Fossil fuel (oil, coal and natural gases) is a non-renewable power source the reason why it non- renewable is it takes a very long time (million years) to form usable fossil fuels for energy; what is reserved for use is being depleted faster than it is being formed. Therefor it is believe that if the United States continues to use this process it will eventually burn out (M.U.S.E, 2013). The reason fossil fuel is so popular is because it is a low cost product that can be accessed all over the world. The process of converting it to energy is inexpensive as well compare to solar power or wind power they believed to the pricey side. If fossil fuel (oil, natural gas, and coal) is not the best choice what are some alterative choices that can be consider for the future of energy in the world: nuclear energy, solar energy, wind power, water (hydro) power and bioconversion (biofuel). Nuclear energy has so... ... middle of paper ... ...aterials it is also a renewable energy sources the pro are there no nontoxic output and it is biodegradable. However the is a huge cons the effects from biofuel will result in many species of animals and plants losing the habitat (Editorial Board, 2014). References Conservation of entergy (n.d) Energy.
