Friedrich, Johannes . This Interactive Chart Explains Worlds Top 10 Emitters, and How

Theyve Changed. World Resources Institute ,

http://www.wri.org/blog/2017/04/interactive-chart-explains-worlds-top-10-emitters-and-

how-theyve-changed. The world resources institute provided the worlds top carbon

emitters for countries. The US accounted for 14.3 percent of carbon emissions in the

whole world. China and the European Union had even bigger carbon emissions than the

US.

Lavelle, Marianne . The 10 Biggest Carbon Dioxide Polluters. U.S. News and World Report, 7

Nov. 7AD, https://money.usnews.com/money/business-economy/articles/2007/11/14/the-

10-biggest-carbon-dioxide-polluters. This article demonstrated the leading carbon

emitters in the world. It revealed that the third leading carbon emitter was Duke Energy,

which is a Carolina based company. Duke Produces 108 million pounds of CO2 per year

and serves 4 million customers in the Carolinas, Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana.
Rinkesh . What Are Fossil Fuels? Conserve Energy Future, 2017 , https://www.conserve-

energy-future.com/advantages_fossilfuels.php. Conserve energy demonstrated all the

pros to using fossil fuels. This article disagrees with humans being the source of climate

change. This website really inspired some good solutions to global warming. Some of the

included grievances of switching to clean energy included the economy and

unemployment rates, which shows why people don't want to make the switch.

Ritchie, Hannah. How Long before We Run out of Fossil Fuels? Our World In Data,

https://ourworldindata.org/how-long-before-we-run-out-of-fossil-fuels/. Our World in

Data gave information about M. King Hubbert and his findings on fossil fuel reserves. M.

King Hubert came up with a logical, mathematical curve to determine when the Earth

would run out of fossil fuels. The hypothesis consisted of a tall bell curve that only lasts

within two lifetimes. Not only did it determine when all fossil fuels would run out, but it

also showed when individual fossil fuels would runout, like coal and oil. We will always

find new reserves, but it will be so small that it could not generate enough power for a

whole population.
