You know the definition of a non-renewable resource, right? Like a hot library book that you have to bring back in two weeks, when our world is depleted of an energy resource, it's gone. All the more reason to understand what can and can't be renewed and what our options are, right? Thankfully, this handy infographic from the BBC (brought to our attention by Co.EXIST) shows the latest estimates on what's left. If we're not careful, in less than 200 years the Brazilian rain forest could be gone. We've only got 42 years of coal left (and 37 of oil).
Take a look and learn why the time is now to start using other fuel sources.
