After being battered and bruised, and scared relentlessly, our friends finally stop at the bottom. But what happened???
Scenario : Whilst you and your friends were out on a n outback trip, your car breaks down. You all realize that you have run out of fuel, and at one of the worst times ever. So then you and your friends decide to ponder on then topic; What would happen if the world ran out of fossil fuels/oils/petrol? How would the world cope???
What would happen if the world ran out of fossil fuels/oils/petrol? How would the world cope??? What would happen if the world ran out of fossil fuels/oils/petrol? How would the world cope??? Watch this slideshow and you’ll find out!
o Oo Oo Oo Oil prices are rising rapidly. o Wo Wo Wo We have run out of fossil fuels, meaning we have no petrol to run our cars, buses, planes and even our lawn mowers. Did you know…?
What are fossil fuels? Fossil fuels, not only keep our cars running, but we also use it to generate electricity. If we want more fossil fuels, we are going to have to wait a few million years.
Lucky for us, scientists and researchers have already started thinking more into making bio-fuels Bio-fuels are made from biological ingredients instead of fossil fuels. These ingredients can range from corn, to soybeans to animal fats. Bio-fuels are renewable and non-toxic, therefore not harming the environment.
Bio-diesels are one of the major bio-fuels we use. Bio-diesels are usually made from plant oils or animal fats. In New Zealand, we have been slow to take up bio-diesel. This is because petroleum diesel has always been cheaper than petrol. However, this has begun to change. In mid- 2007 the New Zealand Government decided that, from April 2008, bio-fuels would form an increasing percentage of transport fuels. Biodiesel:
The Government’s target is to have 3.4% of all fuel sold by (oil companies) by 2012 be bio-fuel. Around 2006-07 the country was using 3,502 million litres of diesel a year. Bio-diesel New Zealand plans to increase its production to 70m litres of Bio-diesel a year, or around 2% of the country’s total diesel use and more than half of the Government’s 2012 target for bio-fuels use.
