Burning fossil fuel is bad why do it?


Best Answer

because people like to live in warm homes and drive their cars to work to earn money to put in their gas guzzling cars and buy groceries and merchandise from the stores (that are also warm), that deliver food and merchandise by gas guzzling trucks from farms and companies that use gas guzzling large farm equipment and machinery to harvest that food and make the other necessities you enjoy. Look around your room. Everything you have, you somehow got with fossil fuel.
