Science Wednesday: Year of Science – Do you know what energy resource you get your electricity from? Have you looked into switching to a “green” alternative?

2009 April 1

Each week we write about the science behind environmental protection. Previous Science Wednesdays.

For each month in 2009, the Year of Science—we will pose a question related to science. Please let us know your thoughts as comments, and feel free to respond to earlier comments, or post new ideas.

The Year of Science theme for April is Energy Resources.

Do you know what energy resource you get your electricity from? Have you looked into switching to a “green” alternative?

    My energy comes from coal – coal mined, at least in part, by mountain top removal methods. Although my electric utility is known for its wind program, and my husband and I subscribe to it, this supports development of Wind Power in my state and does not really provide the elctricity coming directly to my house.
    I am looking forward to the day, very soon, when I can install solar panels on my roof to provide the energy for my home.
    I am a firm believer that it will take all kinds of energy sources to power America. Let’s just do it responsibly.
