              WINNER OF YOUTUBE'S BEST NONPROFIT VIDEO AWARD!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJ-J91SwP8w&feature=youtu.be


Fossil fuels have powered human growth and ingenuity for centuries. Now that we're reaching the end of cheap and abundant oil and coal supplies, we're in for an exciting ride. While there's a real risk that we'll fall off a cliff, there's still time to control our transition to a post-carbon future.
A deeper analysis of the crises we face, and possible solutions we can work on right now can be had HERE: http://j.mp/PCReader

▶ THANKS TO THE FRACKING BOOM, WE'RE WASTING MORE MONEY THAN EVER ON FOSSIL FUEL SUBSIDIES... making society bear the brunt of the local pollution and climate change caused by fossil fuel extraction, transport, and burning. the federal government continues to lose lots of money by selling fossil fuel extraction rights on public lands for less than they are worth, as the Government Accountability Office has reported. Here again, more extraction means more lost government revenue. This is true for coal as well as oil and gas. In Wyoming and Montana’s Powder River Basin, where coal mining is booming, Oil Change notes that below-market lease rates are costing the Treasury $1 billion per year. http://grist.org/climate-energy/thanks-to-the-fracking-boom-were-wasting-more-money-than-ever-on-fossil-fuel-subsidies/

Samantha Fuller's curator insight, 2 October 2013, 18:03

This videos main point is fossil fuel, but all the things we are using fossil fuels for are growing into climate change problems. The whole world is dependent on fossil fuels. Try to think of one thing that wasn't made using fossil fuels or doesn't use fossil fuels. All these new inventions we have are still running on fossil fuels. The manufactors are adding to much co2 in the air causing tempertures to rise. What we need to do is learn to live without fossil fuels. Changing our energy sourse will change our whole economy.
