The amount of energy in fossil fuels is enormous simplamente. A gallon of gasoline weighs only 6 pounds and contains about 35 kWh of energy, what an automobile would spend half an hour of road approximately. A normal person who continually pedalling a bicycle would take about a thousand hours to produce this amount of energy, and could also bet that he would lose more than six pounds in the process. Coal, diesel, oil and natural gas are able to produce amazing amounts of energy.

The hidden treasure of the energy in fossil fuels has allowed our society develops at unprecedented speeds. It has also altered the environment most of the first consumers had been able to imagine.

Today, our challenge is to the left of search for energy beneath the Earth and start searching power of the Sun, wind and rain.
