The present simple is also used for: General truths or laws of nature Fossil fuels (be) formed over millions of years years. are we (split) uranium's atoms to create the heat used to make electricity. split The the most inexhaustible, renewable source of energy known to man. is The trash we (produce) everyday can also be used as fuel.produce

It can change the fragile balance for life on Earth. We (add) to the problem by burning fossil fuels.They (produce) gasses like carbon dioxide (CO2) that (trap) more heat and (cause) more global warming. Some scientists (suggest) that we change the way we use energy. traps is cannot can hits changes traps causes builds add produce trapcause suggest GLOBAL WARMING
