1 Where the World is going

2 Coal I levels of emission that are harmful to the atmosphere I levels of emission that are harmful to the atmosphere Not renewable, they will not come back Not renewable, they will not come back Burning coal creates sulfur dioxide Burning coal creates sulfur dioxide Mining for coal is dangerous and time consuming. Mining for coal is dangerous and time consuming.

3 Crude Oil (petroleum) Formed from plants and animals decomposing for millions of years Formed from plants and animals decomposing for millions of years Burning creates carbon emissions Burning creates carbon emissions Recovering oil is inefficient Recovering oil is inefficient Oil transportation is very dangerous and spills can occur Oil transportation is very dangerous and spills can occur Not considered a renewable energy source Not considered a renewable energy source

6 Natural Gas Finite amounts left in the earth Finite amounts left in the earth Very expensive to pump out of the Earth Very expensive to pump out of the Earth Contributes to green house gasses Contributes to green house gasses Mostly methane Mostly methane Prone to leaking Prone to leaking

7 Why are renewable energy’s Valuable They will never run out They will never run out Most give off very little or no emissions Most give off very little or no emissions Usually have low environment impacts Usually have low environment impacts Will pay for themselves over time Will pay for themselves over time Prevalent in many ecosystems Prevalent in many ecosystems Do not contribute towards greenhouse gasses Do not contribute towards greenhouse gasses

8 Geothermal Energy There are three types of Geothermal energy There are three types of Geothermal energy Binary Binary Flash Steam Flash Steam Dry Steam Dry Steam Geothermal Power Plant Coal Power Plant

9 Binary Geothermal Power Heat doesn’t need to be extreme Heat doesn’t need to be extreme All water used goes back into the Earth All water used goes back into the Earth There is There is Almost no waste of Anything
