There is no viable alternative to energy from renewable sources. That is why it is now important to consider only energy of this type. The energy we obtain from fossil fuel is creating climatic problems. It will not be long when it will become difficult for us to breathe pure air.

Introduction

There is no way we can bring about improvement unless we start with our own resources. We have to start from the scratch and work our way to safety through correct and constant use of the clean and renewable alternatives.
It is important to begin making moves that will impact intake of energy from alternative and renewable sources. The change is beginning to happen but it is not to the desired level. We receive 8% of global energy production from renewable sources and another 6% comes from nuclear sources. This leaves 86% of our energy coming from coal, oil or natural gas (Our Climate).
Ethical energy is green energy obtained from renewable sources. It gives us a million reasons to smile. It is clean. It is efficacious. And it only costs little more than the conventional energy provided by fossil fuel and nuclear energy. Considering the advantageous, long term effects of the renewable sources, it is only fair and right to opt for such sources whenever the opportunity is present.
The importance of switching to energy from renewable sources cannot be overstated. Now it is easier to switch over to this form of energy although supply is scarce owing to the huge cost in capital investments.
The plan to switch over to renewable energy is gaining grounds in many parts of the world, notably Europe. ...

With the discovery of oil reserves and natural gas the use of coal as a form of energy reduced dramatically from 80% to 30% in 1984 but the increase in energy consumption increased. It has been assumed that recorded that in the year 2000 energy usage will be ranging between 400,000 to 500, 000 petajoules with a projection that this usage would keep on increasing every year.

Nuclear Energy
Fossil fuels currently account for 80% of the electricity generated. And electricity generation is responsible for 40 per cent of those discharges into the atmosphere that are involved in changes in the greenhouse effect. Nuclear energy therefore holds a considerable environmental advantage: it permits the production of very significant quantities of energy, without atmospheric discharges and…

If less energy is used, then the world will see a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions (Ottinger, 2002). "The cheapest, cleanest energy is the energy you don't use," said Jenny Powers of the Natural Resources Defense Council (qtd. In Schirber, 2008). While the concept does seem simple enough, it is up to the individuals and the companies that are using the most energy to start revising their…
