burning fossil fuel for energy

Natural gas and the environment - U.S. Energy Information ...

Sep 24, 2020  Natural gas is a relatively clean burning fossil fuel. Burning natural gas for energy results in fewer emissions of nearly all types of air pollutants and carbon dioxide (CO2) than burning coal or petroleum products to produce an equal amount of energy. About 117 pounds of carbon dioxide are produced per million British thermal units (MMBtu ...

Fossil Fuels - Our World in Data

The burning of fossil fuels for energy began around the onset of the Industrial Revolution. But fossil fuel consumption has changed significantly over the past few centuries – both in terms of what and how much we burn. In the interactive chart we see global fossil fuel consumption broken down by coal, oil and gas since 1800.
