Which Energy Source is Best? Renewable or Nonrenewable?

Renewable energy sources, such as solar, wind, and hydroelectric power, are often touted as the future of energy production. While they have many positive attributes, including being clean and sustainable, they also have their drawbacks. In fact, each renewable energy source has unique advantages and disadvantages, making it important to carefully consider which ones we rely on to power our world. The same goes for nonrenewable resources. How do you decide which one works best?
