The Need for Sustainable Energy

The switch to sustainable energy, such as renewable resources, is now likely to become a more important topic of debate as the effects of global warming and the finite supply of energy we are limited to become a more prominent issue as time passes.

Thesis Statement

The implementation of sustainable energy sources is needed because the current sources are harming the earth, and with the constant expansion of technology, sustainable resources are becoming less expensive and more attainable, which in turn creates additional jobs and new careers
