From the Paper
This paper will discuss the pros and cons of solar power. Solar power will be discussed in depth in the perspective of the overall worldwide energy and environmental situation. The subject of solar power will be brought up to date by the inclusion of articles written within the past year.
Energy consumption may shift from source to source over time. For example, the United States went from a nation generating most of its heat energy from wood in the nineteenth century to a nation utilizing coal energy in the early twentieth century. Then, the majority of energy consumption shifted to oil in the mid-twentieth century, in part because of the prominence of the internal combustion engine (MacKenzie 1-30). The 1980s are a time when environmental awareness has combined with the search for fossil fuel alternatives (U.S. Dept. of Energy, 1981).
