As a fossil fuel, its combustion contributes to polluting emissions, especially of carbon dioxide, one of the most dangerous of the greenhouse gases. Human contributions of greenhouse gases have modified the atmospheric greenhouse layer, which plays an important role in moderating global temperatures.
The biggest concern we have with the use of petroleum is the emission of greenhouse gases and the impact that has on our environment. It’s not the biggest concern we have with its use, but rather, the biggest concern we have with the production of petroleum.If the petroleum we use is sourced responsibly, then there’s nothing wrong with it. The biggest concern we have with the use of petroleum is really how most people use it.
