Fossil fuel


It is fuel formed underground by natural processes from plant or animal remains. (Cambridge Online Dictionary)

Examples of such fuels are oil, gas, and coal. Those are wide-spread and use in various industries across the world. Those three account for more than 80% of all fuels used globally.

A valid question to ask is if fossil fuels are formed from the natural process, why are they harmful to climate?

Fossil fuels produce lots of energy when they are burned. These fuels also happen to be very pollutant. The burning of fossil fuels results in a large number of carbon dioxide emissions in the atmosphere. All these contribute heavily to climate change. The sad part is that existing technologies worldwide strongly depend on fossil fuels and it is very challenging to stop that vicious cycle.
