Less amount of air pollutants in the atmosphere
The activities of humans on this planet have caused our atmosphere to have a lot of carbon dioxide as well as other global warming emissions which are very harmful to future generations.
These gases that are trapped in the atmosphere act like a blanket that we use to warm ourselves when we are cold.
Consequently, the temperature of the planet increases as the heat is also trapped which in turn causes things such as the rise of the sea level, drought, storms, and ultimately extinction.
In America, approximately 29 percent of global warming emissions come from the electricity sector and the majority of the emissions are caused by the burning of fossil fuels such as natural gas as well as coal.
On the other hand, most of the green energy sources that are available today produce small to no global warming emissions and green energy is the way for future generations to be able to survive.
Even when the life cycle emissions of green energy are taken into account, the emissions of the global warming that are associated with green energy are minimum.
Better health for people
The water and air pollution that is caused by the burning of fossil fuels has caused a lot of health problems.
These health problems are usually connected to respiratory problems, cardiovascular diseases, neurological damage, premature death, cancer, as well as other major health problems.
The pollution affects the quality of life of the majority of the people and a study conducted by Harvard University shows that the costs of the life cycle and the effects of coal on public health to be approximately 74.5 billion dollars each year.
That is the same as 4.35 cents for every kilowatt-hour of electricity that is generated.
The majority of the bad health effects are mainly caused by water and air pollution which green energy does not generate but are produced by the burning of fossil fuels such as natural gas and coal which are proven to be affecting the health of people.
Therefore, we need to switch to more environmentally friendly alternatives which have the potential to reduce the level of air and water pollution and at the same time improving the health of the people.
A reliable source of energy
Sunny skies, strong winds, heat from the earth, abundant plant matter, as well as fast-moving water each can provide a constant and wide replenished supply of energy.
A minor percentage of the America electricity is being generated from these green sources but that surely has the potential to increase.
Recent studies have repeatedly shows us over and over again that green energy can provide a large amount of electricity in the future even after taking into accounts the future potential constraints that may need to be kept in mind.
On top of that, a study made by the government has also shown that green energy could contribute a large portion of the electric supply which makes up around 80% by the year 2050.
