What Are the Alternatives?

Fossil Fuels Cause Major Pollution
Fossil Fuels are Limited
Fossil fuels are rapidly depleting. They are called non-renewable energy sources for a reason. After we have used most of our fossil fuels in 2042, coal, the only remaining fossil fuel, will be gone 70 years after that. (Shafiee, Topal. 2008.) It's time we make a change. It is very important for us to convert to renewable resources. If we neglect to do so, we will have lost almost 90% of our energy in 26 years. This will cause panic.
Renewable Resources are Better for the Environment
Renewable Energy Sources are Expensive
