    and continued popularity is a major factor contributing to global warming (IPPC). It also has a negative impact on the economy. In its composition, only 565 gigatons out of 2765 of carbon dioxide contained in the fossils is burnt before its negative effects on the globe turn irreversible (McKibben, 2012). In 2011, the rate of emission of carbon dioxide was 36.1 gigatons, and there was a prediction that the figure keeps rising by day (McKibben, 2012). As a result, there will reach a time when…
