2) However, these fuels are slowly-running out. If no new resources are found, some fossil fuel stocks may run out within a hundred years

3) While the set-up costs of power plants can be quite high compared to some other energy resources, the running costs aren't that expensive. Combined with fairly low fuel extraction costs, using fossil fuels is a cost effective way to produce energy (which is why it's…
