The Depletion of Fossil Fuels thumbnail

Coal, natural gasses and oil are non-renewable sources of energy. They are also known as fossil fuels. A large percentage of these non-renewable sources are globally used as the main energy source that people consumes.

Plants, and other decomposing materials such as dead animals and the like are main sources of fossil fuels. They have existed since the beginning of time powering life here on earth. They are very valuable because it takes thousands of years to convert as an efficient source of energy. As of now they are the most accessible and cheapest source of energy because of this fossil fuels are continuously and indiscriminately being exploited. It’s being consumed at a fast rate. This in effect will impact greatly our environment. 

Economies around the world use this form of energy and many find it difficult to switch to another form of energy because it is expensive and complicated.

We should shift gear because  of its effects and implication to our ever-changing world. As stewards of the earth we are responsible for the future. We should all start by being responsible and accountable energy consumers.

    “We should all start by being responsible.”
    Oh, we’re responsible alright, for triggering the 6th Mass Extinction and setting the biosphere back 10 million years. Maybe we should form a committee to study our self destruction. It’s all we have left to do.
