Smoke Stack from a Coal Plant
Natural Gas Plant
1. What is a fossil fuel?
2. List three examples of fossil fuels.
3. Why is it a dillema to continue using fossil fuels?
Gases are emitted when fossil fuels are burned from coal plants and automobiles One of the most significant is carbon dioxide, a gas that traps heat in the earth’s atmosphere.
Global average surface temperature has risen 0.5-1.1 degrees Fahrenheit since reliable records began in the late 1800s. This has been attributed to the increase in carbon dioxide.
Projected temperature increase could have detrimental effects on the earth.
