Fossil fuels are the most efficient source of energy, but the disadvantages are so great that they have prompted the world to look into alternative sources. Fossil fuels like coal and oil release carbon dioxide and have been known to produce acid rain near mass burning of coal, particularly in power plants. Coal and oil are also limited, meaning there is a constrained value of fossil fuels and they will eventually be totally depleted....   [tags: Fossil fuel, Energy development, Wind power]

- The world has been relying on using conventional sources of energy such as fossil fuels and nuclear energy for decades. These resources are non-renewable. That means once they are used up they’re gone for good. However, newer technology has allowed us to use renewable sources such as the sun or wind. These sources for practical purposes will last forever. People should use renewable energy because they are sustainable and environmentally friendly.

- The focus on wind energy will become the end of the world’s economy, electricity, and survivability if we continue to only focus on this source of power. Governments should decrease production of wind energy alone, and instead formulate a plan that consists of all “green” energy sources, which in turn will provide maximum power outage. There are many problems with wind turbines, two of which are major drawbacks.
