Most of the energy this country uses comes from fossil fuels and that is a big problem. There are many disadvantages when using fossil fuels such as it is unsustainable and bad for the environment. Fossil fuel is a hydro-carbon material which is formed underground that we have to extract and burn to release energy and it creates a lot of issues. By burning the fossil fuels, it gives out toxic gasses. To obtain fossil fuels we have to drill underground for it, and it is a very dangerous process. As a result, it contributes to the problem of air pollution and climate change.
Fossil fuel is a nonrenewable resource, and it is not a long-lasting solution. A better solution would be to switch to renewable energy. Switching to renewable energy would be better since it would be more sustainable. Renewable energy could reduce the amount greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution. It is also safe and abundant. There are many types of renewable energy sources such as solar energy, wind energy, geothermal energy, nuclear energy, biomass, and hydroelectric. By using renewable energy, we will make this environment a better place.
