"Calculates how long coal will last in the USA"
Coal is an interesting program that considers what the total available coal supply is with existing known and mine-able coal mines within the United States and how this compares to likely consumption. The package can set the increase in percentage terms of consumption of coal and compare this to known available supply to determine how soon the USA will completely run out of coal power which is used to power some power stations and homes to this day. This dirty energy source will run out the faster the growth in consumption due to population growth and this Java program proves a way to calculate how increased usage will speed up depletion of known reserves.
Coal Key Features:
- Java program to calculate how much coal supplies there are left in the United States
- Enter the increase in current consumption rates to see how long the known coal supply will last
- Increases in consumption originate from population growth and an increased use of this fuel source
- Requires Java 1.7 or later
- Requires Windows
Coal is a Java package that lets users enter growth in usage of coal and informs the user how many years' supply is left for coal at that growth in consumption.
Requirements: Java 1.7+
