Fossil Fuels

Our society has developed by relying on unsustainable energy sources such as coal, oil, and natural gas. In particular, so-called developed countries have exploited and benefited from fossil fuels. The lives of indigenous and local people are being threatened and destroyed at the sites of resource extraction. There is an urgent need to move away from a society dependent on fossil fuels in order to tackle the climate crisis.
