America has long been one of the biggest consumers of oil in the world and the dependency continues to grow as more and more people use automobiles and airplanes for travel. Gasoline prices are through the roof, and since there is a relatively fixed demand for oil, price acceleration does not deter people from buying it. Many people want to find a way to combat high gas prices, but when foreign countries control the price of oil per barrel, there is little that can be done in the marketplace aside from using clean energy alternatives.
Clean energy alternatives are America’s primary option to end the addiction to oil and coal. Many people all over the country are investing in these energy alternatives, and at this time, the United States has the means to increase production of solar-powered energy products. This can benefit the country for a number of reasons. Introducing solar powered plants into the American marketplace will create jobs for millions of people out of work.
The manufacturing companies will have strict regulations on the amount of pollutants and chemicals that they will be able to release into the environment so the United States will also be helping to combat their carbon footprint on the earth. A healthier, stronger environment is good for everyone in the country, and most people will find that alternative energy is less expensive and more convenient to maintain.
Oil and coal are the energy sources of the past, and as the country grows, there will be many new opportunities to find energy alternatives that are safer, healthier and less expensive than the oil and coal Americans are now so dependent on. Solar power, wind energy and hydrogen fuel are just some of the many options that will help end the dependency on foreign oil and coal for a stronger, brighter future for America.
