Nuclear and wind energy

Nuclear energy

The main environmental concern related to nuclear power is the creation of radioactive waste such as uranium. Even though uranium can be found in minerals and rocks it is considered a nonrenewable source of energy. Nuclear energy is found in the center of the atom. Nuclear power is used for electricity for homes and buildings. A fun fact about nuclear fission is that atoms split apart to form smaller atoms which release energy.

wind energy

Wind is found all around the earth. It is formed by uneven heating of the earth's surface by the sun. The earth's surface is made of different types of land and water that absorbs the suns heat at different rates. Today, wind is used for putting power into homes for people to use. A fun fact that I learned was that wind speeds can vary through the different states.

Innovative Alternative Energy Form

Other energy form is solar energy. Solar energy is solar panels that power your house.
