Fossil Fuel Energy
Fossil Fuel Energy are non- renewable resources that were formed when prehistoric plants and animals
had died and were being buried by multiple layers of rock and soil. The age of the organisms and their resulting fossil fuels is typically millions of years, and sometimes exceeds 650 million years. Fossil fuels contain high percentages of carbon.
Now, after one million years, many types of fossil fuels have formed. Examples of these fuels are as follows: oil, coal and natural gas.
Although fossil fuels are continually being formed via natural processes, they are generally considered to be non-renewable resources because they take millions of years to form and the known viable reserves are being depleted much faster than new ones are being made.
