display_description Today, most of the world's energy comes from fossil fuels. These fuels are the products of resources such as coal, oil, or natural gas. To convert fossil fuels into energy, they must be burned, but this burning process releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere which is believed to contribute to global warming. One alternative to fossil fuel energy is nuclear power which does not release carbon dioxide.
