The gases include carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide whose release is only intensified by human impact. These greenhouse gases are emitted into the air and can get trapped into the atmosphere, thus thinning the ozone layer and causing global warming. Fossil fuels are also finite resources, in other words they will eventually run out. In addition, the extraction of fossil fuels is hazardous during life – threatening processes such as mining and offshore drilling. An alternative to the use of fossil fuels that effectively avoids the problems fuels present is the use of renewable energy. Renewable energy is extracted from natural resources that naturally occur in the atmosphere. There are a wide variety of options to consider when implementing the use of renewable energy. One option is solar energy, which is created from radiant light and heat from the sun. A second option is wind energy, which relies on the use of wind turbines powered
