Why are fossil fuels non renewable?



  1. 0 Votes

    Per the definition of “non-renewable”, fossil fuels are categorized as such because they take millions of years to form and are a finite resource. It cannot be reproduced, regenerated, or reused to match it’s consumption. In essence, this means that a resource is non-renewable if the time it takes this resource to regenerate is longer than the time in which we consume it. On the other hand, resources such as wind and solar power are considered renewable resources because they are replaced by natural processes at a rate which sustains our use- they are renewable!
