Question

Although coal and petroleum are produced by degradation of biomass, yet we need to conserve them. Why?

Solution

Coal and Petroleum:

  1. Coal and petroleum are derived from large amounts of biomass that have been trapped within the earth under high temperature, pressure, and anaerobic conditions.
  2. Such a situation, like major upheavals on Earth, occurs only infrequently.
  3. At the moment, no new coal or petroleum is being produced.
  4. Because these resources are being depleted at a much faster rate than they are being created, they will be depleted in the near future.
  5. As a result, they must be protected. Natural resources are elements of the environment that are extremely valuable to humans, whether in one form or another.
