Greenhouse gases, pollution, and the environment. These three areas are affected and must be considered when producing energy for everyday needs. Fossil fuels such as Natural gas and oil, both common sources of energy are non-renewable. Once a deposit or source of these is consumed it cannot be replaced immediately or easily. A completely new source must be used in its place. While renewable energy sources such as biomass, wind, and solar power do cost more money than traditional energy produced by fossil fuels, they do have a much greener effect on the environment as they discharge little to no greenhouse gases and are continually replenished. Fossil fuels are fossils formed over millions of years, while these renewable sources are produced every day by means such as plants,wind, and the sun, all natural sources. These renewable energy sources are reasonable because of the benefits that are gained by using them.
While producing renewable energy less greenhouse gases are discharged, saving the environment from climate changes, such as global warming. Pollution is becoming an issue as greenhouse gas levels are raising in the atmosphere from long-term dependence on fossil fuels. Long term effects of pollution include a global increase in temperature which harms wildlife, and also increase in sea levels. This increase in temperature harms many different forms of life such as the wildlife in the arctic. Their homes are starting to melt away as the higher temperatures are disturbing their normal...
