Renewable energy sources, like solar energy, are very useful resources that many do not take advantage of because of the limited amount of information that is known about its benefits in terms of environmental, economical, and time factors. Cooking coal, also known as metallurgical coal, can be used for processes like steel production. Coal comes from very old plants that had lived hundreds of years ago in swampy forests. Over the years, time has layered the dead plants with water and dirt, keeping the energy stored inside. The heat and pressure from the top layers turned the remains into coal. This means they are used up faster than they could be replaced. In other words, the more we use, the less we have.
