The population in North America has more than doubled in the last 50 years, and with it, the demand for energy has skyrocketed! A typical household spends more than $2,000 a year on energy and contributes twice the amount of greenhouse gases to the environment as an average car.
Even though energy resources are dwindling, 30-50% of the energy in this country still is being wasted! So, more oil and coal is being burned every single day! More than 5 tons of coal must be burned to keep up with the electrical demands of one home each year! The constant burning creates additional smog, acid rain, and global warming.
