Household Electricity and Carbon Footprint

70 % of the the electricity being generated in the United States is derived from fossil fuels. The majority of electricity being produced in the United States and India comes from a cheap and large producer of Carbon, which happens to be Coal. Coal is cheap and has the ability to produce mass amounts of electricity rapidly. Depending on where the electricity is being generated from, the size of the carbon footprint will be either small or large. Hydropower and coal both produce large amounts of electricity, as well as produce a large difference in Carbon emissions.
