Task 2: Many countries use fossil fuels such as coal or oil as the main sources of energy. Do you think this a positive or negative development?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My essay:

There are a number of nations using non-renewable energy like coal or oil as their main sources. However, in my opinion, this is truly a negative development because of several aspects.

First, fossil fuels cannot be renewed. These types of energy need thousands of years to form a certain amount. As a result, it is undeniable that there is just a fixed quantity of sources of energy which is available for these countries to use in a short period of time. However, over several years, because of the overuse of fossil fuels, humans now face a shortage of these energies and try to find a new source to adapt to the huge consumption of people.

Second of all, these sources of energy affect badly the environment and human health. Those are not clean energy; thus, it could damage the natural habitats and lead to other bad consequences. For example, since the companies have to use heat as a means of converting those fossil fuels into energy, this action could release a large amount of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, which later destroy the atmosphere and contribute to global warming and greenhouse effects. On the other hand, human failure could cause bad consequences to the life of themselves and other animals. In particular, oil spills from the ships can contaminate the sea and nearby environment, which kills thousands of water species, affects badly the beauty of the surroundings, and even make the humans’ immune system worse.

In conclusion, overusing fossil fuels as the main source of energy in a number of countries could lead to worse damage to the environment and the earth’s natural habitats.

Thank you for checking it and hope you have a nice day!!

You need to read more scientific articles on this subject and learn more about global warming and climate change.


There are a number of nations (Actually, almost all of the world's nations use gas, coal and oil as their primary sources. Very few use renewables.) using non-renewable energy like coal or oil as their main sources. However, (That is not a proper transition word) in my opinion, this is truly a negative development because of several aspects.

First, fossil fuels cannot be renewed. These types of energy need millions thousands of years to be formed by natural geologic processes. form a certain amount. As a result, it is undeniable that there is just a fixed quantity of sources of energy which is available for these countries to use in a short period of time. (Actually the world's resources of oil and gas will last a few more decades. Coal will last more than a century.) However, over several years, because of the overuse of fossil fuels, humans we will face a shortage of these energies and must plan now to find a new source to adapt to meet the future needs of a growing population. the huge consumption of people.

Second of all, these sources of energy affect badly the environment and human health. They Those are not clean energy; thus, it could they damage the natural habitats and lead to other bad consequences. For example, since the companies have to use heat as a means of converting those burn fossil fuels to create electricity energy, this action could release (Not "could" - it really does!) they release a large amount of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, which later destroy the atmosphere (These gasses do not destroy the atmosphere. They do cause air pollution and acid rain.) and contribute to global warming and climate change. and greenhouse effects. On the other hand, human failure could cause bad consequences to the life of themselves and other animals. (I do not understand this sentence.) In addition, particular, oil spills from the ships can contaminate the sea and the nearby environment, which kills thousands of water species, affects badly the beauty of the surroundings, and even sickens local people. make the humans’ immune system worse.

In conclusion, overusing continuing to burn fossil fuels as the main source of energy in a number of countries could lead to irreversible harm worse damage to the environment and the earth’s natural habitats.
