Chapter 05: The Source

Natural resources are renewable or non-renewable
Fossil fuels are non-renewable
resources that we use most of all
Alternative energy sources are difficult but do-able

Fossil fuels are non-renewable
resources that we all use.
coal and natural gas too
gasoline that comes from crude oil
petroleum fuels
the cars and trucks and planes we use
energy from fossil fuels
and fossil fuels are non-renewable

Natural resources are renewable or non-renewable
Fossil fuels are non-renewable
resources that we use most of all
Alternative energy sources are difficult but do-able

Renewable resources can be
replaced fast and naturally.
The sun, the wind, the earth and the sea
some things are hard, some things are easy
solar cells, nuclear energy,
dams for hydroelectricity,
wind turbines and
underground water for geothermal energy

Some have problems that you may not see
waste storage, availability,
cost and so profitability,
damage to fish and wildlife but
renewable resources can be
replaced fast and naturally.

Natural resources are renewable or non-renewable
Fossil fuels are non-renewable
resources that we use most of all
Alternative energy sources are difficult but do-able
