Renewable Energy & Energy Resources

By Oliver Smith

The majority of the world’s electrical energy comes from nonrenewable sources. Although burning fossil fuels is a cheap and reliable source of generating an electric current, the carbon dioxide it produces is having a negative effect on the environment. Our reserves of fossil fuels are running low as they are being used a much faster rate than they are being created. Using alternative energy resources will reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and reduce the greenhouse effect and global warming.
