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

This infographic outlines how a dependence on fossil fuels is putting the long term future of our planet in jeopardy. It overviews the problems and impacts associated in the production and distribution of non-renewable energy sources and highlights how the alternative of renewable energies can meet our requirements.

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 with fossil fuels currently driving around 90% of global energy production levels.

Often overlooked by Governments and energy decision makers is that Earth has an abundance of a different kind of energy, the natural kind – energy which won’t run out, pollute or destroy habitats. 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.

Take a look at the infographic below to see how short-termism is killing our planet. [via]
