1,118 wordsPart One - Introduction Fossil Fuels are the most important energy sources in our world today. The overwhelming majority of the huge amount of energy used in the world comes from the burning of three major fossil fuels: coal, petroleum, and natural gas. Fossil fuels are a non-renewable source of energy, and there is no other. They are formed over a very long period of time; the fossil fuels on earth today were formed from plants and animals that lived up to 300 million years ago. These fossil fu...

When the wildcatters got lucky, and struck oil, it would typically gush up the drill pipe, hence, a gusher. Because gushers are a safety hazard and environmental concern, oil companies today contain them. After discovering an oil field, it is the task of the oil company's engineers and technicians to get it out. Not ...

Climate Change And Global Warming Part 1
1,817 wordsClimate Change and Global Warming (1) The problem of Global warming is considered to be one of the most troubling issues of the contemporary era. It has been noticed that the average air temperature in different parts of the world is being on the constant rise, ever since the humanity's existence began to depend more and more on exploitation of fossil fuels. While in 1870 the carbon fuel emissions in the air were almost non-existent, in 2000 their amount has reached 6 billion tons. Many scientis...

Different automakers use concept cars in various ways and they all devote a lot of time and money toward developing their cars of the future. The first thing an automaker does is decide what kind of market (what age group, what style of driving) it should target to gain the most customers. For instance, Ford builds mainly vehicles which targ...

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 huma...
