Environment Science And Sustainability
For each assignment, you will use the M.U.S.E. link to complete the lab. In this lab, you will see the impacts associated with coal-fire or nuclear power plants for electricity generation. This will help you write a scientific paper that focuses on energy sources.
Everything people do in their daily lives involves the consumption of resources. One resource in particular is energy. Electricity is one of the most important energy resources consumed. Electricity is also one of the highest in demand. Traditionally, fossil fuels have dominated the U.S. energy mix. Examples of fossil fuels include:
- Natural gas
However, it is well-known that fossil fuels emit carbon into the environment. This is harmful to the environment because fossil fuels are contributing to global warming. Fortunately, alternative energy sources are becoming more efficient and popular. Examples of alternative energy sources include:
Analyze energy sources, to write a scientific paper that addresses:
- The 2 primary sources of electricity generation are coal and nuclear power plants. Which of these sources is better for human sustainability?
Using the M.U.S.E. link, review the background information and gather your data.
