Electrical power generation is most commonly performed through the use of fossil fuels, namely oil, natural gas, and coal. Currently, fossil fuels provide 66 percent of the world's electrical power and meets 95 percent of the world's total energy demands, which include heating, transportation, electric power generation, et cetera. In the United States (U.S.), fossils fuels provide for over 90 percent of the country's electric power generation, with coal providing 51 percent. The efficiency and affordability of fossil fuels has made them the worlds, as well as America's, largest source of energy.Yet in the past several years, concern regarding the use of fossil fuels for power generation has been raised. Essentially, the incredibly vast usage of fossil fuels for the past century has raised two main concerns: the availability of fossil fuels is decreasing and the wastes created by fossil fuels in the process of power generation are detrimental to the environment. First off, the world's supply of fossil fuels is continually decreasing and will eventually be depleted because fossil fuels are non-renewable resources. The world in its entirety has approximately 462,611.7 Mtoe (million tons of oil equivalent) of coal, 161,848.8 Mtoe of natural gas, and 163, 776.6 Mtoe of oil. The U.S.
