my research and
studies suggest that
we have about 50
years of fossil fuels
left

company and our
research tells us
fossil fuels will not
run out for over 200
years

powered car and I
believe that fossil
fuels will run out in 20
years
Why should we try to conserve (save) energy
Burning fossil fuels
releases carbon dioxide
which contributes to
global warming
Fossil fuels are not
renewable so they will
run out
Most energy is made
by fossil fuels. This
should be conserved
because
The carbon particles
from burning coal can
lead to global dimming
Fossil fuels can be used
for other useful
products like plastics
and medicines
Impurities in
fossil fuels
such as
sulphur can
lead to acid
rain
