Although the fossil fuel coal had been used as a fuel since1,000 B.C., it wasn't until the arrival of the Industrial Revolution from the mid-1700s through the 1800s that coal began to replace biomass as the primary source of energy
And this is where sustainability comes in!
It's often claimed that we have enough coal to last hundreds of years. But if we step up production to fill the gap left through depleting our oil and gas reserves, the coal deposits we know about will only give us enough energy to take us as far as 2088.
In ecology, sustainability is the property of biological systems to remain diverse and productive indefinitely. Long-lived and healthy wetlands and forests are examples of sustainable biological systems.
Use fewer cars, buses and motorcycles, find a bike instead!
WE ARE UNITED, DO NOT WASTE THE EARTH LIKE THIS
Because when you want it most, it won't be here...
