The global crisis of our times — the climate emergency — has been temporary slowed by another worldwide disaster: the coronavirus pandemic. As industrial production, transport, and consumption have plummeted, so has the demand for fossil fuels. Environmental historian Troy Vettese places the fortunes of fossil fuels within a larger context over time, with an eye to what lies ahead.
