What are some important advantages of using renewable resources instead of non renewable energy resources?
Advantages of Non-Renewable Energy
Because non-renewable energies seem abundant, like oil, gas and coal, some experts believe if channeled correctly, our supplies will be safe for future generations. Non-renewable energy sources include oil and petroleum products, gasoline, diesel fuel, and propane, natural gas, coal, and uranium used for nuclear energy. Some environmentalists include our forests, trees, and plant life as a non-renewable energy source as well especially due to the deforestation of our forests.
One advantage of non-renewable energies is that right now, they seem widely available and affordable. Oil and diesel are still good choices for powering vehicles. They are cost effective and much easier to produce and use. Non-renewable energy also has market value where a supplier or manufacturer makes money and pays workers enhancing economies.
Although governments struggle with fair trade practices, many countries have a non-renewable energy source which can used as a bargaining tool to help their economy stay afloat.
