Gale Cengage Learning, 2010. 133 p. — ISBN 978-0-7377-4499-6.Several articles discuss issues surrounding renewable resources.Energy continues to be one of the most hotly debated topics in America today. Public discussion often focuses on issues related to Americans’ use of fossil fuels such as oil, coal, and gasoline. With topics like gasoline prices and global warming in the news almost every day, Americans are also talking about alternative sources of energy that could replace fossil fuels. These alternative energies include solar, wind, and water power, and fuel made from trees, plants, and waste products. History tells us that these sources of energy, now viewed as alternatives, were once the primary sources of energy used by people to heat their homes, cook their food, and do their work. A look at the changing use of energy over time can help in understanding how Americans became dependent on fossil fuels and how earth’s original sources of energy came to be seen as alternatives.Introduction Changing to Alternative Energy Is Necessary Ben Cipiti Oil Independence Is Possible Benjamin K.
