Oil is a big part of society. It’s used to power cars and produce energy. Although the world relies on oil, oil has a negative rap. When burned, oil creates carbon dioxide. Global warming and the degradation of the global environment is caused by excessive carbon dioxide emissions. Would it be better if society stopped using oil or is it so reliant on oil that it would be too risky to get rid of it?

Society is too reliant on oil, and the environment is suffering because of it. There are oil alternatives that would be enough for society.
Renewable energy sources are an efficient energy source. Instead of oil, renewable energy sources use wind, water, and the sun. Renewable energy sources don’t deplete and is an abundant source of energy.
There are other sources of energy other than oil. Wind and solar power are renewable energy sources that are effective to use. Renewable energy is also good for the environment. There aren’t any fumes made with renewable fuels. Renewable energy sources are a better choice to have than oil.
The alternative sources of energy aren’t convenient. About 1/5 of the world’s electricity source comes from renewable sources. The demand of oil is so high and renewable sources is so low, it would be crippling to switch to renewable sources now.
[P1] There are sources of energy outside of oil.
[P2] Wind, solar, and water power sources are a sufficient source of power and great for the environment.
[P3] Renewable energy sources are a sufficient source of power.
Rejecting the premises
[Rejecting P3] The alternative power source don’t produce enough energy to replace oil.
