Overview of hydrocarbon and other energy sources and their impact on global warming is given. It is shown that the developed countries, which represent 15% of the world’s population, should provide business plans and clean technologies for the developing countries which constitute 85% of the world’s population. Thus, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and global warming can be globally reduced. Furthermore, cleaner transportation, such as electric and hybrid vehicles need much more adaptation in order to be universally applicable, this as well as other green technologies that are environment-friendly.
