tiaDS 73 / 235 52 Jun 23, 2014 #1The graph below given information from a 2008 report about consumption of energy in the USA since 1980 with projections until 2030.The line graph compares how Americans use six different energies from 1980 to 2030, a period of 50 year. This report was taken in 2008 and it is measured in quadrillion units.It is noticeable that petrol and oil are the popular energies which beat the largest amount of consuming in the whole period, whereas nuclear and solar figures have a similar pattern. The following over period four energy resources incline slowly, while nature gas and hydropower remain reasonably stable.In 1980, nuclear, solar and hydropower energies stood at the same figures which held at just under 5 quadrillion units, although petrol and oil energies reached the largest number of consuming in 35 quadrillion units. Moreover, petrol oil and natural gas followed the same graphic which was a gradual increase following 15 years at just under 40 and 25 quadrillion units. In any case, the hydropower energy recorded a steady decline at approximately 4 quadrillion units in 2000.A closer look at the data reveals that petrol oil, coal, nuclear and solar powers have significantly risen since 2005 to 2013. Those figures will rise slightly onward, exceeding the consuming of hydropower and natural gas energies will level off between 2015 and 2030.
