The reason for this is that detailed data on fossil fuel production and consumption are compiled and reported worldwide. Since the mid- 1800s, fossil fuel usage has increased significantly, notably since World War II as discussed earlier, to over 300 EJ/year (Fig. 6). 9). So fossil fuel emissions are about twice the annual atmospheric COzbuildup. This type of “factual data” comprises the essence of the argument that fossil fuel consumption is the primary cause of COZ buildup in the atmosphere, and sic climate change.

Carbon is not consumed in the sense that it is no longer available in any form. Many reversible and irreversible chemical reactions occur in such a manner that the carbon cycle makes all forms of carbon, including fossil carbon resources, renewable. It is simply a matter of time that makes one form of carbon more renewable than another. If society could wait several million years so that natural processes could replenish depleted petroleum or natural gas deposits, presuming that replacement occurs, there would never be a shortage of organic fuels as they are distributed and accepted in the worlds energy markets.
