  • Use Of The Burning Of Fossil Fuels
    1,284 words
    Ever since the industrial revolution the earth's energy needs have mainly depended on the use of the burning of fossil fuels, and why not Fossil fuels take care of 87% of the world's energy needs including electricity, heating, transportation, and have enabled the evolution of large modern cities and a modern infrastructure to ship people and goods all over the planet. It is also cheap and convenient for companies to acquire fossil fuels. (Palfreman) There are many drawbacks to the use of fossil...
  • Dependent On Fossil Fuels For Energy
    572 words
    Fossil Fuels: Our Society's Dependency Natural Resources Report by Sean Falconer Chemistry 122 Mr. Hart 1997-02-07 Our society has become dependent on fossil fuels for energy. That seems fine for now considering the fact that everyone is generally happy in the present situation. Fossil fuels are relatively inexpensive and seem to be doing the trick right now. Using fossil fuels arise such issues as global warming, rising costs of scarce resources, and shortages of raw materials. None of these pr...
  • Trees Use Carbon Dioxide From The Atmosphere
    2,420 words
    Global Warming Global warming is the warming near the earth's surface that results when the earth's atmosphere traps the sun's heat. The earth is getting warmer. The changes are small, so far, but they are expected to grow and speed up. Within the next fifty to one hundred years, the earth may be hotter than it has been in the past million years. As oceans warm and glaciers melt, land and cities along coasts may be flooded. Heat and drought may cause forests to die and food crops to fail. Global...
  • Clean Fuel Vehicle
    509 words
    INCENTIVES AND LAWS The main federal incentives for the purchase or conversion of individual alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) are the federal income tax deductions of $2,000-$50,000 for clean fuel vehicles, and the income tax credit of up to $4,000 for electric vehicles (EVs). An income tax deduction is also available for the installation of refueling or recharging facilities for AFVs. Except for the federal tax credits and deductions, most of the federal incentives are programmatic grants orien...
  • Sources Of Renewable Energy
    956 words
    'Shifting Power'; Since the beginning of industry humans have been in search of fuel to power machines and generate energy. Fossil fuels, such as crude oil and coal, discovered beneath the Earth's surface were found to be an excellent source of fuel. These fossil fuels are burnt in order to generate the energy required to complete various tasks. However, we are now realizing the problems that are created by using fossil fuels to generate energy. These problems are so great that they will force h...

In case you havent noticed yet, ladies and gentlemen, this enemy is ourselve...
  • Source For Clean Hydrogen For Fuel Cells
    1,056 words
    Reclaiming Clean Energy from Wastewater As the Earth becomes more developed many changes in the environment are becoming apparent. These changes are unexpected and often faced with opposition from skeptics. One of these problems is global warming. Global warming is caused by the release of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Greenhouse gases are produced on a large scale by combustion of fossil fuels. A major contributor to greenhouse emissions is the combustion of coal, oil, and gas in power ...
  • More Carbon Dioxide In The Atmosphere
    1,608 words
    Fossil Fuel Consumption, CO 2 and Its Impact on Global Climate Background: At the beginning of human history, we had to satisfy our energy needs (for food, heat and movement) by using our own muscle power and gathering or hunting naturally available plants, animals and wood. Each stage in the evolution of human society (the development of farming, domestication of animals, harnessing of wind and water power) increased the average per capita energy use, but it was the Industrial Revolution and th...
  • Energy From Fossil Fuels
    478 words
    Entropy and Pollution The substances that we as human beings classify as 'pollutants' have always been present on the planet, because the earth is a closed system. The reason that these materials cause a negative impact on the environment, therefore, is not that they exist, but that they have been dispersed throughout the world's ecosystems in a very disordered fashion. To illustrate this, two pollutants of major concern will be considered, carbon dioxide (CO 2) and sulphur dioxide (SO 2). CO 2 ...
  • Destructive Investments In Fossil Fuels
    1,080 words
    One of the world's most limited resources, fossil fuels is also one of the biggest industries. Population growth drives the demand for fossil fuel consumption. Unfortunately, the continued exploration for more resources simultaneously destroys the environment. This is brought into interest in the use of fossil fuels. It is realized that there are many trade-offs between the economic development growth in possible ecological and environmental destruction brought by using fossil fuels. Energy prod...
  • Austria's Other Major Problem Concerns Energy Consumption
    1,912 words
    Austria is a well-developed European country with relatively few major problems. However, in the past, most major concerns have been environmental and energy-based. For years, the need for fossil fuels and natural gas has plagued Austria. Although some fossil fuels occur naturally in Austria, the country's use far exceeds their supply. In order to help solve this problem, Austria has created plans and restrictions such as the Regional Energy Action Plan. In addition, air pollution (which leads t...
  • Alternative Energy

    Alternative Energy – The Solution To The Alternative Energy – The Solution To The Fossil Fuel Dilemma Alternative Energy – The Solution to the Fossil Fuel Dilemma If the United States continues to employ fossil fuels for energy, the nation will ultimately become more dependent upon fuel imports from the troublesome nations of the Middle East, and we will continue to damage our precious environment. Since the United States relies so heavily on fuel from the Middle East, the U.S....
