Renewable energy is sustainable. Unlike fossil fuels--which are dwindling resources that can't be replaced--renewable energy comes from such infinite sources as the sun, earth and wind. Renewable energy is free from many of the negative environmental impacts caused by fossil fuels---namely, global warming and water pollution. Plus, renewable energy is the wave of the future. According to the US Department of Energy, the world's available fossil fuels will be consumed in 104 years if there isn't a global switch to renewable energy. This is a switch the world has to make. Many people are already going green with renewable energy in their homes and their lifestyles.
