ABSTRACT
The article discusses the energy situation and the use of fossil fuels and renewable energy in the U.S. According to the author, the health of the U.S. when it comes to politics, geography and environment will depend on how it satisfies energy needs. Electricity consumption by 2030 is expected to increase by 36 percent. Fossil fuels in the country cause health disorders such as cancer and birth defects. Also discussed are the technological improvements in wind power and regulatory challenges facing renewable energy resources.
