Non-Renweable Energy Resourves Will Run Out One Day

Non-renewable energy resources are fossil fuels and nuclear fuel (e.g. uranium and plutonium). Fossil fuels are natural resources that form underground over millions of years. They are typically burnt to provide energy. The three main fossil fuels are:

- Coal

- Oil

- (Natural) Gas

These will all 'run out' one day

They all do damage to the environment

But they provide most of our energy

Renewable Energy Resources Will Never Run Out

Renewable energy resources are:

- The Sun (Solar)

- Wind

- Water waves

- Hydro-electricity

- Bio-fuel

- Tides 

- Geothermal

These will never run out - the energy can be 'renewed' as it is used

Most of them do damage the environment but in less nasty ways that non-renewables

The trouble is they don't provide much energy and some of them are unreliable because…
