Is coal a leading source of energy in the US?
it is one of the leading ones
Coal is very important to the US. It is the primary source of energy for the country.
Its coal and hydrogen
an energy source
most likely, it's coal
The main sources of energy include coal, crude oil, natural gas,water, and wind...
Coal - about 50 percent of total
No, coal is.
The ferns have been compressed into 'coal' and we use coal as a source of energy - hence 'fossil fuels'.
coal was used to build lamp posts and used for machines in factories
Fossil fuels (coal,oil and gas).
Coal is the most used source for electricity in the US. World wide, other countries, I don't know.
Figures for 2006 showed coal at 49 percent, and both nuclear and natural gas at about 19 percent.
Pennsylvania is the largest producer of coal in the Northeastern US
Coal burns cleaner than petroleum. It is also abundant in the United States and all over the world, and petroleum is less so.
What energy source produced more than 50What do you call all of the fossils that have ever existed in earths history percent of the us electricity in 2001?
The energy source you mean must be coal, but you seem to have two questions mixed together
Coal is used as a source of power in all 50 US states. It is the main source of electric power in the US acconting for ~43%.
Over half of the electric power generated in the U.S. is being generated by coal fired electric power plants.
Zero percent of nuclear power plants make energy by coal, US or otherwise.
The United States relies mainly on fossil fuels as the primary energy source. According to the numbers given in the United States Department of Energy website, fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) currently provide over 85% of the energy consumed in the United states.
Depends entirely on the cost of the available energy source and the invested cost in the power plant. Most of our domestic energy in US is produced by Coal. Regulations to make coal more environmentally clean will drive up the cost.
Fire is not a source of energy it is a manifiestion of the release of energy.
It is burned in coal-fired power plants to supply energy.
According to the most recent figures, the USA primarily uses these energy sources, listed from highest to lowest usage: petroleum (oil) - used primarily (92%) in transportation and as the main substance in manufacture of petroleum-based goods, ex. tires, plastics, health products, plastic packaging for other products natural gas - used primarily for residential and business heating coal - used primarily in industries now, but bituminous (soft) coal used to be the #1 source of… Read More
The main energy source in 1900 was coal. Coal was used on the railroads, to heat houses, to fuel steamships, to provide mechanical power in factories, and to generate electricity. There was some oil production in the US, but as motor vehicles had only just started to be used, the demand was not much, and of course aviation was unknown.
The sun is a renewable source because it is a source of energy that can not run out in a human lifetime unlike fuels such as Coal & Oil. The sun will last about 5 billion years and by this time none of us would be alive so that makes renewable.
Coal was the main power source behind the industrial revolution, although new methods of harnessing water-power were also pioneered during this period.
For us here on Earth, the prime source of energy is the Sun.
The ultimate source of energy on the Earth comes from the Sun, and gives us coal, oil etc. And of course, our weather and warmth. The fissile sources of energy such as uranium and plutonium originated in the explosion of a supernova. And may have arrived in the Solar dust cloud via debris of some earlier planet. Of course, there is some kinetic energy left over from the formation of our Galaxy, Solar system, and… Read More
just under %50
Nearly 50 percent (of electricity)
Coal production statistics from the US Department of Energy indicate that in 2007, the US produced (and presumably burned) 1.146 billion tons of coal. China produces and burns slightly more.
Biomass is the source of almost half of America's renewable energy.
No. As the technology stands today, wind power isn't reliable enough to be the primary electrical source in the United States. As technology advances, it could be. But for now, coal and nuclear power are our best options.
Coal. Coal fired plant generate the bulk of IS electricity making.
Carbohydrates give us a large source of energy and we could not live without it!
No . Electrical Energy is in the United States is produced by coal.
the three energy sources are coal gas and nion
It does partially, Hydroelectric power is the largest renewable energy source in the US.
Coal (for electricity), oil for transport
Could be the total of coal and nuclear
Coal, oil, natural gas
No. Tornadoes are too rare and too hard to predict for us to use them as an energy source.
Fossil fuels, suck as burning coal or using oil
yes it is a renewable energy source because it can come back to us frmo the sea or ocean xD
The most prevalent type of energy used is derived from petroleum products. This includes fuels such as coal and oil.

Nuclear energy is nearly the same as coal energy, in that they both use heat to boil water and use the vapour from this to spin turbines creating electricity. The difference is that they us different heat sources. In nuclear energy, the heat source is radioactive elements. Radioactive materials have chemical reactions which in the process create a lot of energy, mostly heat. The ways it negatively affects us are simple. First of all when… Read More
Coal is the main fuel for electricity.
