Reasons to Avoid the Use of Fossil Fuel

Fossil Fuel

We are living in a highly busy world, where energy has become an imminent thing. From a simple electric toaster to a big water heater or automobile, energy has been used extensively. In fact, we can say that the world has evolved to this stage due to plenty of inventions and innovations that use-up fossil fuel.

Fossil fuel is nothing but gas or coal, which is formed due to the natural decomposition of living organisms. The dead plants and animals that were buried and remained in the earth for millions of years are mostly available as fossil fuel. One should remember that fossil fuel will not be available for centuries. It would be depleted or exhausted at one point of time in future.

At present, the fossil fuels have been used extensively for producing electricity in grids, fuels, etc. According to some studies, it has been found that all the fossil fuels in the world would be exhausted by 2052. The exhausting of fossil fuel not only puts everyday life in jeopardy but also causes risks to the earth’s environment. Therefore, it is high time we think of using energy resources, which are green, natural and renewable.

The technological advancement in recent years has helped man to find out different ways of generating renewable resources like sunlight, wind, air, biogas, etc. The combustion of fossil fuel has resulted in enormous and increasing levels of air and atmospheric pollution. When burned, fossil fuel emits a lot of bad gas like carbon monoxide. The excessive presence this gas makes the sunlight to get trapped in the atmosphere, thereby causing a global warming effect. Due to this effect, the earth’s temperature has increased resulting in extremely hot weather, which causes death of plants and animals, and also melting of ice and snow in the glaziers and mountains. These are some of the strong reasons why it is imperative that we use alternative energy sources and say no to fossil fuel.
