Use more renewable energy produced by fossil fuels
Save energy yourself!How do we get the most out of the remainingquantities?
Very large amounts of electricity can be generated in one place using coal, fairly cheaply.
You can build fossil-fuelled power stations almost anywhere, as long as you can transport the fuel to the power station.
The transportation of gas and oil to power stations is easy.PRO’S OF FOSSIL FUELS
Pollution place using coal, fairly cheaply. (carbon dioxide and acid rain)
Notrenewable on short terms
Large area’s of landscape are ruinedbecause of miningand landscape is neededto store coalnear the power stationsCON’S OF FOSSIL FUELS
Right now, we can’t live without fossil fuels place using coal, fairly cheaply.
Preserve fossil fuels
We need to change our energy productionConclusion
