Coal and petroleum are fossil fuels. It took the dead organisms millions of years to get converted into these fuels. On the other hand, the known reserves of these will last atmost a few hundred years more. Getting public transport and leaving the car at home is one of the most straightforward things to do. It can be more convenient, quicker, and cheaper to do so. And the green benefits are great too. Car journeys contribute a significant amount of our overall carbon footprint. According to the Energy Saving Trust nearly half of us use a car to drive short journeys, journeys that could otherwise be completed in another, more sustainable way.
