Fossil fuels make up 85 percent of total global energy consumption, but their share of US energy consumption is the lowest it has been since 1902, primarily because of concerns about climate change and pollution. Through a narrative-driven pro/con format—supported by relevant facts, quotes, anecdotes, and full-color illustrations—this title examines issues related to fossil fuels. Topics include: Should the World Stop Using Fossil Fuels? Is Fracking a Good Way of Producing Fossil Fuels? Do Fossil Fuels Threaten the Environment? Are Fossil Fuels Economical?
