The Earth is dying at an extreme rate and will continue to do so unless we switch to renewable energy, to help fight and prevent the effects of using fossil fuels. Many people will say that we need to switch to renewable energy and that our planet is suffering from global warming, while others will say that global climate change is a natural occurring event that does not to be worried about.

The question for that is, are we ready for when that day comes and we have to make the change from fossil fuels to renewable energy. As of right now, we have fossil fuels and don’t have to switch to renewable energy, but when the day comes, that the oil drilling stops producing and the coal minds are empty is the day we will have to sit back and say are we ready for this.
