What Would Happen If We Consumed All Sources of Fossil Fuels

Fossil Fuels
The mere thought of this question is awe in our minds, although we have been aware of the seriousness of global warming for a relatively long time, governments have not pursued protective policies until recently, even companies that supply us with energy are still looking for other sources of fuel.
Will our dear planet withstand this catastrophe?

How does global warming happen?

When burning fossil fuels, carbon dioxide and other gases are released into the atmosphere.
These gases accumulate in the atmosphere, and they are called greenhouse gas, because they absorb the sun's rays from the surface, preventing them from leaving the atmosphere. The climate translates those rays into heat, and thus our summer becomes hotter than before.

If we continue to burn fossil fuels, greenhouse gases will accumulate in the atmosphere more and more, which means absorbing more of these rays and allowing our planet to absorb more heat.

Land and ocean currently absorb much of the fossil fuel burning waste.

But in one new study, the effect of burning 5,000 gigatons, the estimated stock of fossils on nature, has been investigated, and researchers have found very frightening results.

Researchers expect the Earth to be able to absorb carbon until about the year 2100, but at this point, the Earth will be saturated with carbon dioxide, and you will not be able to absorb more.

The oceans will have less capacity to absorb emissions, which will push most of these emissions into the atmosphere.

Also, extremely high temperatures will limit the growth of plants in the tropics.

By the year 2300, scientists expect that the rise in temperature will be between 6.4 to 9.5 degrees, and between 15 and 20 degrees in the Arctic.

In addition, there will be a noticeable change in the rate of precipitation, as it will increase in frequency in certain areas.

Other studies suggest that global warming resulting from the burning of the entire fossil stockpile will cause entire ice to melt in Antarctica, thereby increasing sea level by about 200 feet, i.e. dumping most major cities in the world.

As governments talk about keeping global warming less than 2 degrees Celsius, energy companies continue to search for places and other sources to extract hydrocarbons.

At this point, it is never clear which future lies ahead. But in any case, do not panic now, the effect of global warming will not start with one night.

Fortunately for us, energy production with renewable sources such as wind, water, and the sunlight is developing well.
