Benefits of fossil fuels
Fossil fuels are basically the remains of animals and plants and these are good energy resources. The three main fossil fuels are natural gas, oil, and coal. Fossil fuels are low in cost and are very important resources for our economy.
Fossil fuels are used to generate electricity used as fuels for transportation. Because of their low costs, they are available to one and all. What would our lives be without heat, electricity, and fuels? Our electronic devices wouldn’t work. We would not be able to keep warm during cold weather. There would be a lack of mobility.
Fossil fuels are easy to locate, readily available, and they are very cost effective. A small amount of fossil fuel burned can produce a huge amount of energy. Fossil fuels have been used for a long time now and there are many companies, industries (machinery and engines) that are completely dependent on them as of now. Also, power plants that use fossil fuels are easy to build and use and can be set up anywhere as long as there is easy access to fossil fuels.
Fossil fuels also generate a lot of money and are a good source of revenue to many countries. They also help related industries provide jobs for people across the globe which is good for the overall economy.
Fossil fuels are used for both residential and commercial purposes. Coal is used for cooking in homes and by far the most inexpensive fuel. Machines use coal because it is easy to use and the machines can be operated with ease. Also, coal is in abundant supply, so there is no cause for concern of ever falling short of supply. Coal is also the most reliable form of producing electricity.
Transporting gas and oil is easy and gas-fired plants are very efficient, too.
Oil is another widely used fuel. It is used in cars, planes, and other machines. Many countries have a lot of oil wells and these help provide jobs for many people across the globe. This not only boosts the economy, but also makes sure that millions of people are employed and are able to look after themselves.
It is important that we make the right use of these fuels and conserve them whenever necessary. They are readily available right now, but we could run out of them in the future. Coal, oil and gas are nonrenewable and we need to conserve them and save our environment.
