SOURCE: https://education.minecraft.net/lessons/lumen-power-challenge ANSWERS: Where does the electricity we use come from? Mostly from fossil and nuclear power stations What is the problem with these energy sources? They deplete the Earth’s resources and have a negative impact on the environment and climate. Burning fossil fuels produces carbon dioxide, which is a greenhouse gas that causes global warming and pollutes the air. Nuclear power stations don’t emit carbon dioxide, but they are expensive and produce harmful radioactive waste. What is renewable energy? Energy that is generated using resources that are abundant and naturally replenished such as solar, wind and hydro. However, they are dependent on the weather. What is the energy transition? The energy transition aims to transform the energy system of today that is based on fossil fuels into a system based on renewable energy sources
