The Evolution of Fuel

Since the beginning of human history, man has sought to fuel his energy needs.
Only advanced and civilized societies could have taken advantage of fossil fuels to produce the standard of living enjoyed by much of the world today.

Nevertheless, mankind's fuels have continually evolved as better, more efficient, safer, and cleaner fuels have become available. From wood, to coal, to natural gas, to hydrogen, a clear trend to lighter, cleaner fuels is apparent.

"The Stone Age didn't end because they ran out of stones; the Oil Age won't end because we run out of oil." –Don Huberts, Shell Hydrogen
