S. Energy Independence Day - July 10 Annually!
U. S. Energy Independence Day is July 10 every year, nationally.
This also coincides with Global Energy Independence Day and the
birthday of famed inventor, physicist, electrical engineer and
Tesla. In fact, Tesla was born July 10, 1856.
And what better way to celebrate U. S. Energy Independence Day
on a national scale than the birthdate of one of the most famous
scientists involved in the development and distribution of electricity
as we now know it?
But, U. S. Energy Independence Day is, aside from being a global
phenomenon, a very American one as
well. We, Americans are fiercely independent by nature. We believe
in rugged individualism, freedom of all kinds, taking care of
our own and personal and national responsibility.
In the year 2011, the U. S. Energy Information Administration
estimates that America imported 45-percent of
its petroleum from foreign countries. The same year,
the U. S. imported 9.5 million short tons of coal from Colombia.
And in 2011, only 12.7-percent of the electricity in the U. S.
was generated using renewable resources such as solar,
wind, hydroelectric or geothermal.
The purpose of celebrating U. S. Energy Independence Day is to
remind ourselves and others that America
is too dependent upon foreign fossil fuels too much
of which comes from hostile nations.
