Pros and Cons on energy resources on Geothermal

These are disadvantage and advantages of different energy resources

Geothermal pros are, no pollution and it is renewable. The cons are, it is hard to find Geothermal energy at different locations.



Solar energy

Solar energy pros are long lasting energy but the con is that it costs a lot of money. Solar energy has cells are long lasting sources but if their are clouds or it is night time you cannot get solar energy.

Wind energy

Wind energy pros is that it doesn't pollute and the cons is that it's inconsistent, unsteady, and unpredictable.

Coal energy

Coal energy pros is that cost less and it is used more common than other energy resouces and the con is that it pollutes the air we breath and affects the ozone layer of our atmosphere. It is also affecting the earth because it is causing global warming.

Nuclear Power

Nuclear Power advantage is that it is the fuel for fusion reactions are readily available. Deuterium and Tritium are virtually inexhaustible, but the disadvantage is that many countries are phasing out fusion research because of the failure to reach a breakthrough.

Hydropower

Hydropower advantage is that dams are designed to last many decades and so can contribute to the generation of electricity for many years, but a disadvantage is the flooding of large areas of land means that the natural environment is destroyed.
