Where does our natural gas, coal and oil actually come from? Discover the processes that created our modern fossil-fuel reserves, which began millions of years ago.
- Fossil fuels are coal, oil and natural gas.
- Fossil fuels are formed from the fossilised remains of prehistoric plants and animals.
- Oil and gas are formed within the sea bed, and coal is formed in nonmarine settings.
- Fossil fuels provide energy, but they are a finite source.
