Many people talk about global warming and why it’s important that we don’t use gasoline, but the problem is that when people talk about it they don’t seem to know what they are really saying. They begin spouting lines about how it’s bad and that the world shouldnt do it, but then they don’t really have a reason to say that. So the question is: why is it bad to use our natural resources to create energy and fuel for the earth? Here is a little breakdown onto how it goes.
When we look at taking care of the environment we have to look at the natural fuels we use. Coal, for example, is a great source of heat and energy. However, the ability for coal to become a resource again takes thousands of years. Meaning that using a ton of goal in a year will take more time then the earth will be around to use it again. This might not seem like a big deal, but natural resources are just like money. Once you run out of money there isn’t more you can make magically appear. So you have to be smart in the first place or look for other ways to get the kind of things that you need.
So once these resources are gone it’s all gone. The other issue is that many of these natural resources, like trees, are responsible for picking up our CO2 that we release into the atmosphere. It picks up a lot of it. If trees are not around to pick it up it just creates a problem of having too much carbon dioxide and that means that there is an increased risk of having a bigger hole in the ozone. That’s what is making the temperature rise. These are part of the reason why there is so much talk about keeping the air clean and using alternative fuels. It’s an issue that should concern us all.
