Electricity and Heat Production
New more reliable energy sources must be developed to meet our energy needs.
Fossil fuels are sufficient to power the planet for a long time.
New energy sources must consider more than just how much power or energy can be produced.
The use of fossil fuels is damaging to the environment.
We can continue to consume resources at our current rate without any effect on society
They are nonrenewable and will run out
They are burned to release energy and they cause air pollution
They were formed from the buried remains of plants and tiny animals that lived hundred of millions of years ago
They are mixed with fossils so they will burn better
Sulphur and nitrates in atmosphere.
All of the above
Geothermal Energy is heat from the sun which can be stored and used as an efficient energy source.
Geothermal Energy is heat from within the earth which can be used to heat buildings or generate electricity
Geothermal Energy is concerned with extracting more fuels from the earth to provide heat and energy.
