Our Final Battle is here. This will decide whether or not we win the war we have waged upon fossil fuels. As Sun Tzu stated: “Know thy enemy and know thyself and thou can fight a thousand battles.” If we have so many other choices such as Breezy Back-ups, Solar Solutions, and Aqueous Alternatives, why do people still use fossil fuels? There are many reasons why, them being absence of needs for any of the three, lack of money to build these alternative energy sources, and their own benefits.
As we know, all three alternative energy sources have requirements for them to work. The hydroelectric dam requires a large body of water, solar panels work only when sunlight is present, and windmills work when and only when wind is there. While these alternative sources may keep some kind of reservoir for this energy, what would we do if that reservoir diminished and we had none of the requirements to keep energy? That’s why we need fossil fuels. Fossil fuels work no matter the circumstance- although they harm the environment.
In addition, the costs of petrochemical refineries are far cheaper than solar panel power plants, wind farms, and hydroelectric dams.
Fossil Fuels have their own advantages. Although we have to wage war upon them, they have many benefits and should still be kept. Because Fossil Fuels such as coal can be burned for energy and petroleum can be harnessed for oil for our cars, and planes to use. Without Fossil Fuels, civilization would fall.
However, Fossil Fuels have their own disadvantages too- primarily being the harmful emissions they send out in the environment, the cost it takes to build oil drills and oil pumps and the political issues that come with these Fossil Fuels. Abusing fossil fuels, humanity would descend into ruin.
We’re not done however, we still can battle these fossil fuels- we have the greatest weapon in our arsenal; Solutions. We can keep these petrochemical refineries and only let them remain as back-ups in the case of emergency around the world. We only have enough fossil fuels for the next 50 years- if we keep on using these, in no time, they will decline and decrease in number, thus royally destroying our planet and keeping it void of energy. We should keep these fossil fuels and put them on hold, only to be used later in times of true crises. For primary energy we should combine all three of our back-ups, solutions, and alternatives at the right time and in the right place for optimal energy. We should build more alternative energy sources around the world- we should outstretch our arm not just to America, but to the entire world. If the entire world becomes dependent on alternatives, rather than fossil fuels, we would never need to worry about Global Warming or Pollution ever again. So let us end this war, permanently. Let us bring in the new Green Revolution for the entire world to enjoy.
