These days, it’s all about the green, reduced carbon footprint.
While that all sounds nice, what would actually happen if we just ditched fossil fuels – coal, oil, and gas – overnight?
It turns out it’s WAY more complicated than you might think…
Join me for a deep dive into the world of petrochemicals!

A minor technical correction – fiberglass is simply glass fibers that do not originate from crude oil, BUT making those glass fibers does require fossil fuels.
