Bio-fuel Energy continued
When you use oil from plants that is using bio-fuel energy.
Solar energy is energy from the sun. The sun is the most used alternative resource in the world.
Solar Energy continued
We use solar panels and solar towers to collect solar power.

Geothermal energy is used in hot tubs and spas. Geothermal energy has a chance to decrease global warming.
Wind energy is energy made from the wind. The wind is a wonderful resource but it is undependable. If the wind isn’t blowing hard enough the windmills and other things will not spin hard enough therefore it will not be able to produce enough electricity.
Wind Energy continued
One major wind source is windmills. Windmills spin fast in the wind producing electricity.
We are polluting our mother nature. We are also ruining plants and animals natural habitat. Go green by using these many Alternative resources and many more things , and save plants, animals, and of course mother earth!
