Americans constitute 5% of the world's population but consume 24% of the world's energy. The average individual daily consumption of water is 159 gallons, while more than half the world's population lives on 25 gallons. 50% of the wetlands, 90% of the northwestern old-growth forests, and 99% of the tall-grass prairie have been destroyed in the last 200 years. <br />16<br />Energy Consumption in USA<br />Source: Solar Fast Track Blog<br /></li> <li> 20. Despite the US being the #1 energy consuming nation:<br /><ul><li>PV technology usage is rapidly increasing </li> <li> 21. More Americans are committed to keep the environment clean </li> <li> 22. Depleting green cover and resources have made policy makers look for alternate sources of energy </li> <li> 23.
