They can be divided by type into fossil fuel, nuclear fuel and renewable resources.

They can be divided by type into fossil fuel, nuclear fuel and renewable resources. Remaining reserves of fossil fuel are estimated as: These are the proven energy reserves; real reserves may be up to a factor 4 larger. Significant uncertainty exists for these numbers. Estimating the remaining fossil fuels on the planet depends on a detailed understanding of Earth's crust.

energy resources that are exhaustible relative to the human life span, such as gas, coal, or petroleum. A resource is a physical material that humans need and value such as land, air, and water. Resources are characterized as renewable or nonrenewable; a renewable resource can replenish itself at the rate it is used, while a nonrenewable resource has a limited supply. Renewable resources include timber, wind, and solar while nonrenewable resources include coal and natural gas.

Nuclear energy and renewables have one important feature in common.

Wastes remain a major consideration whether they are released to the environment or not. Ethical principles seem increasingly likely to influence energy policy in many countries, which augurs well for nuclear energy. The safety provisions include a series of physical barriers between the hot radioactive reactor core and the environment, and the provision of multiple safety systems, each with back-up, and designed to accommodate human error. Nuclear energy and renewables have one important feature in common.

Climate and other abiotic factors of the environment control the global distribution of organisms.

pollution - changes the chemical composition of air, soil, and water. Disruption of ecosystem equilibrium. Climate and other abiotic factors of the environment control the global distribution of organisms. The influence of these abiotic factors results in biomes, Biomes - the major types of ecological associations that occupy broad geographic regions of land or water.

Underground facilities are used extensively by many nations to conceal and protect strategic military functions and weapons' stockpiles.
