Fossil fuels are reservoirs of ancient carbon, stored by the sun's energy eons ago.

By releasing this energy now, we are enhancing the greenhouse effect and bringing about a high likelihood of dangerous climate change.

We are also depleting reserves which may possibly be needed in harsher future times (unknown unknowns).

Ending fossil fuel dependency

Fossil fuel dependency can be reduced through energy efficiency, and ended through alternative energy technologies.
