When will America stop using coal?



  1. 0 Votes

    As of 2008 48.7% of the energy produced is coal based, while renewable sources are around 3%. Natural gas and nuclear are around 20%. But replacing something that is almost half of the production is going to take very long, unless something cheap, clean and more efficient comes along.

    “Energy” is not the same as “electricity”. In the other answer from seppe, “electricity” should be used instead of “energy”. Those percentages do not reflect total energy use because so much is in burning oil — but NOT for electricity (only about 1% of electricity generation comes from oil).
