Fossil fuels have been in existence for millions of years formed from the decomposition of dead animals. Fossil fuels are continuously being formed through natural processes but takes millions of years to form.
As human population increases geometrically, the demand for the use of these fuels increases too.
So when will our fossil fuels run out? Reports have shown that we will run out of coal in less than 120 years, less than 60 years for oil and natural gas.
The truth is that we are going to run out at some point. We need to embrace the spread of renewables as we expect these fossil fuels to run out.
The world’s oil supply will run out in a few decades. This is popular opinion, but advances in technology has proven that oil will never run out with existing technology capable of unlocking reserves despite the rate of extraction.
As policies are made worldwide to reduce the reliance on fossil fuels, we expect a drop in the use of this fossil fuels in the coming years.
