We depend utterly on fossil fuels, especially to grow our food. From natural gas comes the millions of tons of fertilizers. Oil provides herbicides and pesticides. All is planted and harvested with oil power, driven, shipped or flown to your table.
For now. Until fossil fuels become too expensive, too rare, too polluting to use. We only have a short time to find other ways.
