Have you ever watch the flames in a campfire?

What about the heat from the flames from your stove?

Well, these are two forms of non-renewable energy. There are many forms of energy that can run out; they are known as non-renewable energy. Non-renewable energy sources can take millions of years to form, so once they are used, they can't be replaced in a lifetime. It will take millions of years to form again.

Oil, coal and natural gas are fossil fuels are types of non-renewable energy.

Have you ever felt a cool wind blowing through your hair?
