Non-renewable resource – Oil:

Oil production is a primary job and is produced mainly by LEDCs. Syria is a main importing country of oil but as a result of being landlocked, it has to transport the oil through the other countries.

Renewable resource – Solar Panels:

Solar panels are very expensive but extremely efficient in brighter countries. However they are weather dependant and only conduct electricity when it is bright. It is a lot more renewable and produces no CO2.

Hydro-electric cars are the future for renewable transport. They release no CO2 but water vapour. The cars are still being developed but they plan to use the water vapour which is produced, to repower the car by breaking into hydrogen. Therefore the car needs very little
