Show More ng that can be done to improve the durability of a tire is incredibly important. After all, your tires are the only thing connecting your car to the ground. Your tires affect handling, acceleration, braking, and your ride comfort during your drive. Chemical engineers have found that a tire made without carbon black would likely last 5000 miles or less. (Spectroscopy of Polymers, pg. 420, J.L. Koenig) For most drivers, that would mean replacing tires one to two times every year. Carbon black also helps conduct heat away from the tread and belt area of the tire, reducing thermal damage and increasing tire life.#fossilfueled Show Less

Show More nd handlines in water margins, to very sophisticated large fishing vessels with entire processing systems on board. These large vessels require substantial investment, well-trained crews, and extensive support infrastructure, and they have evolved in response to opportunities to catch and sell substantial global fishery resources. Energy use varies widely across the sector, but it’s safe to say that however you source your fish, fossil fuels play a critical role in the capture, transport, and processing of the world’s fastest growing food market - reaching about 179 million tonnes in 2018. #fossilfueled Show Less

New sets of transactions (blocks) are added to Bitcoin’s blockchain roughly every 10 minutes by so-called miners. The machines performing the “work” are consuming huge amounts of energy while doing so - primarily sourced from fossil fuels. #fossilfueled Show Less
