There are many ways to create energy we use in our
everyday life. However, all those methods of creating energy are ultimately possible because of the Sun. All the energy sources we use are solar power, oil, coal and natural gas it's just old decayed plants and swamps that originally got their power from the Sun using their leaves and photosynthesis.
Even things like wind turbines are solar powered because the wind blows when the Sun heats up the atmosphere unevenly.
As humans we are even solar power because we get our energy from plants or animals that ate plants which again get their power from the Sun. Coal, Petroleum, Natural Gas, Hydro, Nuclear, Oil, Wind and Solar are the main ways we are currently producing energy. These methods are indirectly getting energy except for Solar. Solar is the most direct way of getting energy from the sun and is a positive alternative to better our environment.
