    Typical energy sources are renewable energy sources, which have been used since ancient times. These energy sources are so widely used that their known reserves are greatly depleted.

    At the same time, it is becoming increasingly difficult to find and use their new money. It is expected that petrol will be imported into our country for a few decades and coal residues are expected to last another 100 years. Coal, petrol, natural gas and electricity are common sources of energy.


    The main advantages of conventional power appliances are that they are numerous and expensive. For example, oil and diesel are still a good choice for powerful vehicles. Renewable energy is expensive and easy to operate and easy to use. According to National Geographic, there are non-renewable energy dams around the world.


    Disadvantages of conventional energy services show that once non-renewable energy sources are gone they cannot be replaced or renewed. Non-renewable energy mining and the products they leave behind cause damage to the environment. There is no doubt that fossil fuels contribute to global warming. When fossil fuels are burned, nitrous oxides cause chemical pollution, sulfur dioxide creates acid rain, and greenhouse gases are released.

    The great evil of non-renewable energy is the challenge of overtaking people by their habit of relying on it. The Union of Concerned Scientists reports that it is an escalating battle to lure consumers that so-called “public goods” of renewable energy, such as reducing pollution for everyone, may not be enough to pay them to pay for more clean energy.
