The use of fossil fuels, such as oil and coal, has been a major contributor to the global economy for many years. However, the continued reliance on these fuels has significant negative impacts on the environment and public health. The extraction and burning of fossil fuels releases greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, contributing to climate change and air pollution. In addition, the limited nature of these resources means that they will eventually run out, leaving us without a source of energy. Therefore, the “dash for fossil fuels” is often seen as a short-sighted and unsustainable approach to meeting our energy needs. Instead, we should focus on developing and transitioning to renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar power, which have the potential to provide clean and abundant energy for the future.
