Fossil fuels use has been associated with among other things, increased global warming and environmental degradation courtesy of the means excessive emission of gases. Global warming has effects on the whole world and not just America. Though diagnosed with these adverse environmentally fatal complications, use of fossil fuels is still used. Hydropower energy have been underutilized, both in th united states and in the rest of the world. Despite the source being so available and environmentally friendly, nations have continuously neglected the rich source of green energy. It is solely on the basis of this truth that the conclusion of this work strongly supportd the use of hydroelectric energy instead of the use of fossil fuels.
America have for a long time been deriving much of its energy from fossil fuel imports. This has not only affected the environmental standard of the American land, but also led to billions of dollars being spent every year for sufficient supply of electricity to the American people. While this has been happening, hydroelectric power has been underutilized; America has many water sources which can be used to generate sufficient electricity without necessarily using fossil fuels. The adoption of hydroelectric energy has many advantages compared with the use of imported fossil fuels. Its impacts can be felt within a few years of its adoption.
The use of fossil fuels to generate energy comes with so many disadvantages. First, the cost used to import the fossil fuels is very high; this means that the country spends so much money to acquire the raw fossil materials. The cost of acquisition and maintenance of generators is also considerably higher. The resultant effect is that the cost of electricity is increased so that consumers who are the common public have to pay more to acquire the power. Secondly, accessing the fossil fuel products is affected by varying global prices, which means that the energy
