Assignment 1 Discussion Non renewable
Resources
Today, more than any other time in history, there is growing support to move away from
nonrenewable resources towards developing renewable resources to meet current and future
energy needs. Fossil fuels are nonrenewable resources that continue to negatively impact the
environment. It is important to learn how these resources are formed since this process of
formation is at the very heart of why fossil fuels are considered to be nonrenewable.
Using the readings for this module, the Argosy University online library resources, and the
Internet, research the nonrenewable resource assigned to you:
Coal Natural gas Petroleum (oil) Note: You are assigned a resource based on the first initial of
your last name. Last names beginning with A–J research coal, names beginning with K–R
research natural gas, and names beginning S–Z research oil.
Respond to the following:
Describe how this nonrenewable resource was initially formed. Briefly explain where the major
reserves of this nonrenewable resource are located and how it is extracted. Examine the
environmental impact caused by the extraction process. Explain how this nonrenewable resource
is used to produce energy, and identify the pollution problems that are caused from this energy
source. Support your statements with appropriate examples and scholarly references.
