It is the dawn of a new age with less pollutants and healthy for our new generation. There are many people that may say that renewable energy is unstable because it depends on the weather. This may be true, but there are many sources of renewable energy such as solar energy, wind energy, tidal energy, wave energy, hydrological energy, biomass energy and more (“Renewable energy and non-renewable energy resources”). If each city has them all it would be impossible to run out of energy. On the other hand non-renewable energy sources such as burning fossil fuels cause great pollution which doesn’t harm anybody except us. Furthermore, there will come a time when non-renewable energy will deplete. They also caused the problem of global warming which will cause great floods at the coasts of the …show more content…
For example renewable energy resources are a source of inexhaustible energy. Sun power, wind power, hydroelectric power, hydrokinetic energy, and geothermal energy are types of energies that can never deplete. Most renewable energy sources emit less greenhouse gases which slows down the process of global warming. We shouldn’t also forget that greenhouse gases also affect our health. It would be a healthier world if we use clean renewable energy sources. Fossil fuels do not need lots of people to process while renewable energy gave many jobs to people who were unemployed. In 2011 202,000 people were employed due to renewable energy. The amount of people who get jobs because of renewable energy is 3 times more than the amount employed by fossil fuels (“Renewable Energy”). Renewable energy technologies may be expensive but after many years their economic benefits will appear. The expensive price of renewable energy is paid once while the money spent on fossil fuels is increasing time by time. For examples remote countries who live on river sides wouldn’t have ever been able to produce electricity if not for the dams they have built. It is also known that fossil fuel’s prices are continuing to get higher. In 2000 each gallon of diesel was worth 1.629 dollars. Now in our present day it is worth 1.989 dollars (“Weekly U.S. All Grades All Formulations Retail Gasoline Prices”). The consumption of oil is also increasing. Today 1.4 million barrels

    This solution is better for many reasons one is that water is a renewable resource and there is an abundance of it in most of the world. Gas and diesel fuels are non-renewable, so they can’t be used again. Water is also a lot cheaper then gas, and is renewable. If the companies go to solar panels they will not use gas in the job for the most part. This means there will be very small amounts of pollution released.…

    This means that when we use it, the energy produced will be able to be used again. Solar energy is not only sustainable and totally inexhaustible unlike fossil fuels that are finite. Solar energy is a renewable resource and that means that we will never run out of it. Fossil fuels will not last forever we should start to use other sources of energy before it is too late. Solar energy is a lot more reliable and will last longer than any other nonrenewable resource.…

    Renewable energy sources such as water, the wind, biofuel, and solar have little or no carbon emissions and, therefore, scores highly well in the replacement of fossil fuels. However, the cost of eliminating these emissions through renewable energy is high for all the alternatives. However, when considering the potential for the reduction of the emissions, wind power holds the best potential for reducing the emissions followed by biofuels and solar energy scoring the lowest on the list. Even with the existing differences in the cost of reducing emission from the fossil fuels, it is possible to control the cost and amount of carbon emissions under certain conditions. With the available alternative sources of energy such as the wind, solar, biomass, and nuclear energy for fossil fuels, the article outlines that renewable energy remains sidelined due to not only the costs and availability but also due to the low net energy ratio and capital intensity (Timmons, 2015).…

    Moreover, it is relatively clean and safe in that it will not cause air pollution during energy generation as fossil fuel does, or any catastrophic consequences as nuclear energy does. However, it is not without drawbacks. When comparing with fossil fuel and nuclear energy, much larger area is required to build sufficient solar panels to generate the same amount of electricity, leading to a high initial construction and investment cost, which makes solar energy expensive. Furthermore, it is less reliable than fossil fuel and nuclear energy because it is highly vulnerable to weather changes. Therefore, it is only suitable for those areas having a relatively stable weather and long duration of sunshine.…

    Thus for a relatively fast solution many nations are using renewable energy initiatives as an alternative for fossil fuels. Resources for renewable energy include sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal heat. While renewable energy accounts for a minority share of the world 's energy supply, it is also the fastest growing energy supply on the planet. Renewable energy is sought after because it 's a clean source of energy; that means it doesn 't directly produce greenhouse emissions or air pollutants. The best part is that we don 't need to compromise our planet or harm it.…

    We know that natural oil is a renewable resource but it just doesn’t restore itself as fast as the other natural resources and it destroys the ozone layer unlike the others. As the popularity of the renewable energy industries increase the use of the sustainable energy that preserves the ozone…

    By finding alternative sources of energy increased demand for fuel could be fulfilled, the environment could be protected, and users could be financially supported. Alternative energies are not completely harmless. It is clear that solar energy has its benefits and detriments. Although the alternative energy sources prevent some harmful effect on our environment, they are only possibilities and not proven facts. However, the fact is that alternative sources are better than the fossil fuels that we use today.…

    First Biodiesel is a renewable source of energy it means can be produced naturally without harming the environment. Second biodiesel presents a very marked reduction in the emission of pollutants compared to fossil fuel. Finally the use of Biodiesel takes as raw material, which was material to dispose generating increased revenue in countries that use green energy…

    Coal power plants are one of the top polluting sources of carbon dioxide in the world, just behind vehicle emissions. The article ‘Coal power: pollution, politics, and profits’ states that the “Negative health effects on the nearby human population, plant life, and wildlife have been hard to quantify precisely and thoroughly, and are generally not included in the cost of coal power to the consumer” (Laskowski). Due to this, the general population is not aware of how destructive this power source is. Coal power produces a number of problems that directly and indirectly effect human health, environment, and global warming. Coal contains Sulfur, and when it is burned for energy it produces Sulfur oxide.…

    Sustainable energy uses natural sources that can be renewed, such as air, water, and sun, so when using efficient energy there is no need to tap into limited foreign resources for energy, which also is an economic benefit as well. When using renewable sources paying another country to use their limited resources is not necessary, limited resources are obviously not infinite so they will eventually run out, leaving our future free of energy. As well as ensuring a future of energy and saving finite resources, such as uranium and oil, efficient energy is all natural and there is no possible way for part of the environment to harm the environment. Also, the conveniency of renewable energy is amazing, in states where…
