Today, we rely primarily on fossil fuels to meet our growing demand for energy. Three hydrocarbons -- oil, coal and natural gas – provide 87% of global energy demand. The scientific community overwhelmingly agrees that overuse of fossil fuels has contributed to global warming. These fuels are finite and non-renewable; by definition, they will not last forever.
