The problems with our fossil fuel economy

Green (Living) Review

We are talking fossil fuels in general. Oil too is on its last legs – as regards supplies, probably, even if it may last for another hundred year or so, as the geologists stated – and it is definitely not sustainable as fuel, same as coal. The oil industry was it also that has prevented us getting alternative energy sources developed. This proves the point that the burning of coal is not clean, not by a long shot, and neither is the burning of fuel oil.
