Burning of coal and petroleum by humans to produce electricity and make vehicles work is the largest source of energy. It causes serious air pollution that may harm our health. In a bigger scale, thickening of CO2 in the atmosphere prevents the earth from breathing out the heat and instead, heat keeps cycling in the whole planet. Scientists fear that without necessary actions from us, global temperatures will keep rising, and in effect, coastal regions will flood.
