Renewable Resources Humanity has very much enjoyed been driven around by fossil fuels. Our whole society relies on this machines we call automobiles who have been around since the invention of the first auto by Karl Benz (WhoInventedtheAuomobile). It does not matter where you go, if it 's either long distance or just for pleasure, motorized vehicles are the main means used for transportation. It can go as far as saying that the creation of automobiles functioning with gasoline has been the best invention since buttered bread yet again our days of this type of transportation are almost over. We dependent so much on this type of transportation yet again society does not stop to think what will we do when the resource, fossil fuels, are no …show more content…
Renewable resources are energies that are able to be produced in a very short amount of time or renewed at the same rate as population consumption. For example, energies such as solar energy, wind mechanisms, tides, hydroelectricity, geothermal power are all example of energies that never ran out and can be made with no process (Asaff). In the contrary there are the non-renewable resources. These resources are those that cannot be replaced in a short period of times some even take centuries to be made. Diesel, natural gas, coal, crude oil, Uranium, and propane are all examples of non renewable resources found in our planet (Carty). Fossil fuels, resources created from animals and plants, are diesel, gasoline and propane which take millions and millions of years to be …show more content…
Crude oil is the base in which gasoline is made and of course this resource is non renewable. According to the article “Non Renewable Resources” by Sue Lynn Carty, “the natural gas supply will run out within the next 35 years [but even more alarming] within 70 years the world 's current oil reserves will be gone [and if] the current rate of consumption continues for oil, the supply is predicted to run out within the next 14 years”. This all means that transportation as we know it will all be gone in less than a century following to future generations not been able to enjoy all these advantages we have today. The extinction of crude oil will affect everyone in a great scale. It is self-evident that the approach of this day of this extortion will come sooner than thought so bringing along side problems of all kinds. These problems include at least, over pricing of the remaining crude oil, chaos in our communities and towns possibly even globally, economical depression, conflicts of all sorts will rise as the nation is faced with this chaotic dilemma. The United States relies so heavily on this non renewable source not just as a means of transportation but also many other sources are made up of crude oil. To give an example of how crucial crude oil is this a few of the objects it is used to make “soap, vitamin capsules, antihistamines, purses, shoes, dashboards, cortisone, deodorant, footballs,
