Environment issues are getting more and more attention all over the country and around the world. As a global environmental campaign, Fossil Fools Day is celebrated every year to coincide with April Fools' Day, April 1st. It aims to raise awareness of the hazards posed by the harvesting, processing and use of fossil fuels.

These are fuels containing high levels of carbon and hydrocarbons formed by the anaerobic decomposition of dead organisms buried more than 300 million years ago. Depending on the environment and decomposition conditions, fossil fuels are formed in many different forms such as coal (solid), petroleum (liquid) and gas (Gas). Because it takes fossil fuels and the rate of human consumption is so fast, this is considered a non-renewable energy source.

Fossil fuels are fuels formed by natural processes and therefore contain a high percentage of carbon. Fossil fuels are the main source of energy, but their use causes serious environmental problems such as increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, air pollution, etc. Thus, it can be seen that, although fossil fuels have been and continue to play an indispensable role in human life, these energy source are increasingly depleted, and at the same time cause harmful effects to the environment.
