WHAT ARE NON – RENEWABLE RESOURCES ?
All these resources are limited for our use so we have to save these non renewable resources for our future generation.
# EXAMPLES OF NON-RENEWABLE ENERGY
- Fossil Fuels
- Peat ( important raw material used in potting and horticulture )
- Rare Earth Elements
- Phosphate Rock
- Nuclear Fuels
HOW DOES OIL AND NATURAL GAS FORM ?
For thousands and millions of years , plants and animals have died and lived . The remainings of these plants and animals have buried deep below the Earth’s surface.
For thousands of years ( under high heat and pressure ) these materials have converted into : –
- Oil and
LET’S CONSIDER OCEANS AS AN EXAMPLE
Millions of years ago, many plants and animals have died and lived. They were buried on the ocean floor and over time were covered by layers of sand and silt.
For millions of years their remains have buried deep under ocean surface and ( with high heat and pressure ) they were converted into oil and gas.
Today we drill down through the layers of sand and silt to take out : –
- Oil and
- Gas settled below.
All these resources are limited and we tend to deplete them at a very high rate.
We have to understand that they take a lot more time to generate and they are present on Earth : –
- Not only for us .
- But also for our future generations.
Turning our attention to renewable energy as soon as possible will help us to save the non-renewable resources for later use.
WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF NON-RENEWABLE ENERGY ?
Now you know the meaning of ” Non-renewable resources ” so let’s go for the effects.
The effects of non-renewable energy are :-
- Atmospheric Effects
- Acid Rain
- Land Pollution
- Water Pollution
- Climate Change
Sustainable development is the ultimate goal we have to achieve and you can know about it on my website :
