Coal, natural gas and oil are the three general structures of fossil fuels. These three have very important use in our world today. We cannot operate airplanes, cars, electricity plants or even generate heat in our home without the use of gas and coal. The medicines that we take and cosmetics that we use are products produced from oil and even the plastic that we use are made from fossil fuels.
Even though they are found to be of major use, a lot of environmental dilemma the world deals with today are also because of fossil fuels. To name a few, burning coals used in power plant releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere which results to global warming. The plastic that we use contains elements that are harmful to human and animal’s health and the poisonous chemicals from spilled oil can also harm living things in land and water.
Eliminating the use of fossil fuels can be very difficult. However, there are countries that have said goodbye to fossil fuels and live on clean energy by using different sources of energy like solar, wind and geothermal.
