We, therefore, by necessity need to continue relying on fossil fuels being extracted, processed, transported, and burned. What they don’t admit is that through these actions they are aiding and abetting pollution leading to 1 in 6 deaths globally and adding to an increasing health burden within their countries and putting at risk up to 3.6 billion on the planet.
