The largest sources of global energy are among the highest contributors to the emission of greenhouse gasses. The fossil fuel-based methods we employ to supply power to homes and businesses have had a catastrophic effect on our environment, impacting our natural resources, wildlife, and human health. Though there are numerous technological innovations that are substantially increasing environmental sustainability and efficiency, there is still much we can and should do to markedly reduce our reliance on harmful, non-renewable energy sources.
