This is an account of events that have led to the climate crisis, and the possibility
that it could lead to the extinction of all life on earth. How is it that climate scientists discuss such an outcome of advancements in technology and the comforts associated with them? This is about the consequences of the use of coal, oil and gas for fuel. These fuels drive heat engines that provide motive power and generation of electricity to run our civilization, all of which have thus far been to the benefit of humankind.
