...Alternative Energy The world is highly dependent on fossil fuels for its energy needs. The biggest disadvantage of fossil fuels is that it causesglobal warming and environment degradation. Moreover, fossil fuels can last for 100 years or so as consumption rate of fossil fuels is much higher than the rate at which they are now discovered. In view of this, it becomes essential to find alternative sources of energy that can replace fossil fuels. The paper attempts to explore the possible alternative sources of energy that can be harnessed and the impediments that come in way in using these sources of energy; the most potential energy source that could be part of human life in future.
