Non-Renewable Energy How Short-termism is Killing our Planet

NON-RENEWABLE ENERGY How short-termism is killing our planet THE PROBLEM Carbon Imbalance Increased Finite Consumption Supply 2265 Land & Sea 250 years Atmosphere Burning fossil fuels disturbs the carbon Demand for fossil fuels is at an all-time high with ongoing rises in energy consumption Total depletion of non-renewable energy sources is expected within the next quarter budget with a rise in atmospheric C02 concentrations century THE IMPACT Rising Temperatures Air Pollution Environmental Disasters Carbon imbalance When burned, fossil fuels give off atmospheric pollutants, toxins and greenhouse gases impacting the entire planet Sourcing & transporting fossil fuels is harmful is raising global temperatures at a rate above what living organisms can adapt to survive to wildlife, in particular oil spills and destruction of natural habitats THE SOLUTION Solar Energy Wind Farms Tidal Energy A self-sufficient source of household electricity that can generate income A low cost source of renewable energy producing zero greenhouse gases Proven to be the most efficient renewable energy source available THE BENEFITS Implementing a global renewable energy strategy wil.. Save lives & improve the health of land & sea Provide a sustainable Reduce costs for form of energy production energy consumers & producers creatures Reduce the dependence & consequences of extracting fossil fuels Increase technology, manufacturing & installation jobs Alleviate emissions to produce cleaner air and water • INFORMATION PROVIDED BY O http://education.nationalgeographic.com/education/encyclopedia/non-renewable-energy/?ar_a=1 O http://www.epa.gov/statelocalclimate/state/topics/renewable.html O http://www.whrc.org/global/carbon/ O http://energy.gov/eere/wind/advantages-and-challenges-wind-energy O http://www.ucsusa.org/clean_energy/our-energy-choices/renewable-energy/public-benefits-of-renewable.html NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC • PRODUCED BY SolarWow • THANKS TO Domestic Solar Panels www.solarwow.co.uk %24
