Title Drowning In Fossil Fuel Waste | Published on: 11/16/2019 4:54:22 PM
Cities in the developing world are shrouded in smog. Fish in North America are tainted with mercury. The Arctic and Antarctica ice caps are melting (and often strewn with litter and garbage). You can't avoid pollution - it's everywhere. And, much of it, one way or another, originates from fossil fuels.Accountants rarely figure it, but pollution - subtle and often not immediately apparent - is a very real cost of our dependence on fossil fuels. In many cases, it’s literally killing us.Renewable energy, however, is fast becoming financially cost competitive - even without subsidies.The rising global tide of fossil fuel wasteParticulate and chemical pollution from burning fossil fuels is omnipresent everywhere to some extent but it’s most apparent in the developing world’s largest cities.China and India, the world's two most populated countries, are driven by the need to do something about air pollution. This is a big driving force behind the move to EVs. They may even ban internal combustion engine vehicles soon.Polluted rivers, streams, and lakes can be just as bad. Whether it's dumped, caused by accidents, or just runs off in the rainwater, our waterways are all too often looked on as just a place to drain off pollution and send it to the ocean.Image:Buildings in China shrouded in smog.
