Fossil fuels, such as natural gas, oil, and propane, are not considered sustainable energy sources in the long term.

Why We Can’t Keep Heating with Fossil Fuels

  • We are depleting a finite supply that took millions of years to build up.
  • “Fossil fuels are by far the largest contributor to global climate change, accounting for over 75% of global greenhouse gas emissions” (UN Climate Action report).
  • “Three out of every five Maine households keep warm in cold weather with some form of fuel oil. That’s more than any other state. Oil is a powerful heat source, but its costs can be high and volatile. Heavy reliance on it has implications for family budgets, human health, local economies, and worldwide climate crisis.” (The Maine Monitor, April 8, 2023)
