Non-Renewable Energy – How Short-termism is Killing our Planet

Earth has an abundance of a different kind of energy, the natural kind – energy which won’t run out, pollute or destroy habitats – from the strength of wind, the intensity of the sun and the powers of the sea. In the UK alone we have over 11,000 miles of coastline from which to harness the sea, some 40 per cent of Europe’s Wind energy and, though it might not seem like it, we even have the sun.

This infographic outlines how a dependence on fossil fuels is putting the long term future of our planet in jeopardy. Renewable energy sources are proven to be an efficient means of meeting global demands, yet short term goals of producing energy fast and at the lowest price are still taking priority.
