The world’s energy resources can be divided into fossil fuel, nuclear fuel and renewable resources. The estimates for the amount of energy in these resources is given in zettajoules (ZJ), which is 1021 joules. The 2C target in global warming means only a quarter of existing, exploitable fossil fuel reserves are burnable.
