ABSTRACT
In 1998, most of the energy used in the United States came from fossil fuels (about 38.8% from petroleum, 23.2% from natural gas, and 22.9% from coal). The rest came mostly from hydropower (water power) and nuclear energy. Fossil fuels are non renewable sources of energy. That means the amount of fossil fuel available for use is limited and that all this fuel will get used up after many years. Scientists are trying to find more sources of energy that will reduce pollution and save some of the fossil fuels: Solar power. Water from the ocean. The wind. Biomass energy. Geothermal energy.
