Studies have shown that low-income communities and communities of color in the US experience disproportionately high exposure to particulate air pollution and air pollution from coal-fired power plants [ 2 ].
This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Fossil-Fuel Combustion is the Major Source of Global Air Pollution and CO2 Globally, the majority of air pollution is generated by the combustion of fossil fuel coal, diesel fuel, gasoline, oil, and natural gas for electricity production, heating, transportation, and industry [ 14 ].
Climate change and disability-adjusted life years.
Some of it comes from a diverse sub-level of energy sources, called renewable energy In buildings, natural gas use for heating and hot water is replaced to a significant extent by electrification and increased efficiency, while industrial use may increase, as natural gas provides a cleaner alternative to coal for high-temperature heat.
Sea-level rise due to global climate warming has made coastal storms increasingly dangerous for coastal infrastructure and inhabitants, contributing to deaths from drowning. Even still, the fact that fossil fuels are on this planet will never change, but how we use them and what impacts their use has will always be an issue Mitigation of climate change would mean fewer children suffering from heat-related disease, malnutrition, infectious disease, physical and psychological trauma, mental-health problems, and respiratory illness.
In a prior commentary [ 2 ], I envisioned fossil fuel as the modern day version of the many-headed Hydra in Greek mythology, inflicting multiple forms of health and developmental harm in children through its emissions of toxic pollutants and carbon dioxide CO2.
Recent studies confirm the reproductive effects of air pollution, their socioeconomic and racial disparities and the large cost imposed on affected families, furthering socioeconomic inequality and increasing the risk of neurodevelopmental effects in vulnerable populations. We use natural gas to heat our stoves to cook for our families, and we use petroleum to fuel our car to get us where we need to go The burning of fossil fuels causes acid rain to shower on cities and ecosystems around the world, tormenting their inhabitants.
In order to prevent the damages fossil fuels, innovations and inventions are constantly developing and changing within renewable resources
