Abstract

"Global climatic conditions have changed by fossil fuel utilization, and this change has serious impact on humankind and nature. The amount of CO2 emitted into the atmosphere has increased by ~ 30% in a decade since 2006. This rise is due to the continued increasing need of fuel. Fossil fuel based global carbon emission, which is the largest contributor of CO2 into the atmosphere (approx. 57%), increased by over 16 times since 1990 [1]. In the 21st century, the planet will become warmer with detrimental environmental effects on our lives, since the global average surface temperature has risen by 0.3 – 0.6 oC (0.5 – 1.1 oF) [2]. For example, Indonesia will move its capital city as its current one is sinking, average wildlife populations have dropped by 60 percent in just over 40 years, and excessive heat exposure contributed to more than 8000 premature deaths in the United States from 1979 to 2003. The major challenge policy makers, government and scientists around the world currently tackle is the global warming issues linked with fossil fuel consumption. Hence, to achieve a healthier and cleaner environment, the priority should be mitigating greenhouse gas (GHG), mainly CO2, and use renewable sources for fuel."
