vital
Is this correct?

Energy can be created from -neither- non-renewable and renewable natural resources.

No; energy can be created from both non-renewable and renewable natural resources.
True or False?; Non-renewable sources of energy are those that we use up and can recreate. They include oil, natural gas, and coal.
True
Fix it

nonrenewable sources of energy are those that can be easily replaced such as biomass, solar power, and wind power.

Renewable sources
Do all sources of energy have both advantages and disadvantages?
Yes all do.
True or false?; A major advantage of using fossil fuels to create energy in that they emit greenhouse gases which contribute to climate change.
False its a disadvantage
green product

Yes it can.
True or False?; Advances in technology have led to large scale modifications of the environment such as mountaintop removal.
