Today, more than any other time in history, there is growing support to move away from nonrenewable resources towards developing renewable resources to meet current and future energy needs. Fossil fuels are nonrenewable resources that continue to negatively impact the environment. It is important to learn how these resources are formed since this process of formation is at the very heart of why fossil fuels are considered to be nonrenewable.
Using the readings for this module, the Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet, research the nonrenewable resource assigned to you:
Coal
Natural gas
Petroleum (oil)
Note: You are assigned a resource based on the first initial of your last name. Last names beginning with K?R research natural gas.
Respond to the following:
Describe how this nonrenewable resource was initially formed.
Briefly explain where the major reserves of this nonrenewable resource are located and how it is extracted.
Examine the environmental impact caused by the extraction process.
Explain how this nonrenewable resource is used to produce energy, and identify the pollution problems that are caused from this energy source.
