No matter what, solar and wind just only isn’t enough for our power thirst .
We need something even bigger and more competitive enough.

Some Reasons why we depend so much on Fossil fuel .

  1. Energy Dependence: Many industries, transportation systems, and economies are heavily reliant on oil as a primary source of energy.
  2. Infrastructure Investment: Significant investments have been made in oil-related infrastructure, such as refineries, pipelines, and transportation networks, making it challenging to shift away quickly.

3. Global Trade and Economy: Oil plays a crucial role in global trade, and its price fluctuations can impact economies worldwide. Countries often rely on oil exports for economic stability.

4. Convenience and Efficiency: Oil has been a convenient and efficient source of energy for various applications, such as transportation, due to its high energy density and ease of use.

5. Technological Challenges: Alternative energy sources face technological challenges and require substantial investment in research, development, and implementation to match the efficiency of oil-based systems.

6. Political and Geopolitical Factors: Control over oil reserves can be a source of political power and influence, leading to geopolitical tensions and conflicts.

7. Economic Interests: Many powerful entities, including corporations and governments, have vested economic interests in maintaining the status quo of oil dependency.

8. Consumer Demand: Consumer habits and preferences, including a preference for gasoline-powered vehicles, contribute to the ongoing demand for oil.
