Conserving Fossil Fuels

It is important to conserve fossil fuels for the benefit of the next generations.

Renewable resources of energy. These are energy sources that can be used repeatedly. We can get renewable energy from the sun, wind and water.

Non Renewable resources which once completely used, takes a lot of time to be formed again. Good examples of these are coal and petroleum.

There are inexhaustible resources that are unlimited or abundant and are unlikely to get exhausted by human activities. Examples of them are windmills, sunlight, soil and many more. Fossil fuels such as coal and petroleum are exhaustible. They take millions of years to form from planet and animal remain. However, necessary that we use these fuels judiciously and only when absolutely necessary. This is called conservation of energy.

We should always apply the 4R’s in conserving.
