Fossil Fuel Age Challenge Overview
Mankind has evolved from the Caveman and the Stone Age, to the Bronze Age, to the Iron Age. More recently we’ve heard of the Industrial Age, Information Age and the Knowledge Age.

No, our kids and future generations are going to remember us as having lived in the, Fossil Fuel Age – The age where we became wholly dependent on fossil fuels for transportation, heating, cooling, building materials, packaging materials and really, most every aspect of our daily lives.
Now of course there have been many technological, medical, and other positive accomplishments made during this age. But, we are all now realizing the Fossil Fuel Age has brought a number of increasingly negative consequences.
In fact, right now we have two choices. We can keep going as we are. Continue to spew greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, watch climate change go unchecked, let pollution spiral out of control and eventually run out of fossil fuels which will lead to the not so promising, Post Fossil Fuel Age.
Or, we can take action and put an end the Fossil Fuel Age right now. Of course the question is…just how do we do that? Well, let’s face it there is really only one way. We need to do nothing less than dawn a new Age of Mankind, the Eco Enlightened Age! (more)
