# We’re at a turning point on climate change. But most countries are still choosing fossil fuels over clean energy, report says

Sure they chose so-called fossil fuels over so-called renewables. Yes, most fossil fuels are not actually fossil fuels as there is no fossil biomatter in them (Natural Gas and some oil at least) and wind/solar are not renewables as those installations require massive mining, and thats most certainly not renewable. So we might have to rework our definitions to match reality for a change. Hydrocarbons (I like that name much better) are what our civilizations are built upon. Without them we are back in the 17th century and how many people was the planet able to support then?
