Alternative Energy Sources

Reuse to help save the planet!

What is alternative and renewable energy?

Fuel sources that are other than those derived from fossil fuels. Typically used interchangeably for renewable energy. Examples include: wind, solar, biomass, wave and tidal energy. Energy generated from alternatives to fossil fuels.

Why is it important to switch to Alternative energy sources?

Fossil Fuel energy wont last forever, making it a non-renewable resource, which means it will run out and create problems for the future of society, if we switch to wind solar, and hydroelectric power we will have a lot less problems in the future.

What are nonrenewable energy sources doing to the environment?

When these resources like coal, petroleum, and oil are burned, they release particles in the air that are bad for the environment.

Why is this a Global issue?

Just because coal may be burned in the U.S. doesn't mean the particles could end up in Europe or Asia or the other way around, they (the particles) are being released into the atmosphere and are causing problems all around the globe.

How do we stop this issue?

By switching to nonrenewable energy it will help stop global warming and/or major climate change, it may take years to make these energy sources vanish, but it will be very worth it.
