Rising temperatures as a result of climate change have severe negative consequences for humanity and the environment, and switching to renewable energy sources like biofuels can help meet this challenge. Extreme weather events, which cause large quantities of injury and damage, are becoming more frequent as global temperatures rise. Renewable energy is one of the most powerful instruments we have in the fight against climate change, and it has every incentive to succeed. Renewable energy has two advantages over fossil fuels, which currently provide the majority of our energy. First, the world's fossil fuel supplies (such as coal, oil, and natural gas) are limited, and if we burn them all, we won't be able to get any more in our lives. Second, renewable energy emits significantly less CO2 and other damaging greenhouse gases and pollutants. When most sources of renewable energy are in use, they emit no CO2. As a result, renewable energy is widely seen as playing a critical role in climate change mitigation and the transition to a clean energy future.
