MALAYSIAN ENERGY RESOURCES
By RHODA HABTEMICHAEL
General Characteristics of Agricultural, Industrial, and Information Age Energy Resources
Agricultural Age Energy Sources:
Renewable energy sources: solar, wind, water, humans/slavery, animals, etc.
Industrial Age Energy Sources:
Non-renewable, fossil fuels (oil, natural gas, coal) and nuclear fission (uranium and plutonium fuels). These fuels pollute more, and once extracted from the earth, they are gone.
Information Age Energy Sources:
Eventual return (once fossil fuels are exhausted) to renewable energy sources (solar, wind, tidal, geothermal, ocean thermal, and biomass)--as in agricultural age, but using more sophisticated technologies to tap these energy sources; also nuclear fusion (from fusing of hydrogen atoms in water) once the technology is perfected in future; lag in transition to these alternative energy sources--perhaps into next age.
Information/Data on MALAYSIAN Energy Sources : Malaysia is in an industrial age. The have Petroleum products as well as palmoil, natural gas, tin, timber,copper, iron ore,and bauxite
Conclusions on Malaysia (Whether Primarily Agricultural, Industrial, or Information Age Re: Energy Sources): Malaysia is in Industrial age. Their energy sources is rich and are able to exportto other countries
