Fossil Fuels


Fossil Fuels are power sources that are most commonly in use by society today. This would include Coal, Natural Gas, and Oil as the big three. All of these fuels require millions of years to naturally form, so they will not be around forever if we use them at this current rate.

Different Fossil Fuels including Coal, Natural Gas, and Oil Products

What Are Fossil Fuels?

Considered “non-renewable” energy, this form of energy comes from burning petroleum, natural gas, coal, methane, propane, kerosene, and other fossil fuels. These fuels come from the anaerobic decomposition of buried dead organisms that have stored energy from photosynthesis. Coming from the fossilization of plants and the pressure of the Earth’s crust over millions of years, this source can not be made quickly enough for human consumption. Therefore, once this source of energy has been mined and burnt, it will not return for millions of years.

In Space, Use of Alternative Energy Sources Is Very Useful

Alternative Energy

Is Alternative Energy is the same as Renewable Energy? This may change depending on who you talk to? In our opinion, we decided to say that alternative energy is another type of energy that is not fossil fuel and burns clean, but may not be a renewable source. This means that we may not have unlimited fuel for the future.

Renewable Energy

So what is renewable energy anyway? Renewable Energy is an energy source that can never run out or nearly never run out. Unlike some of the fossil fuels that we will eventually mine out of the Earth, Renewable energy sources, such as Solar Energy or Wind Energy, can always be harnessed as long as we still have sunlight and wind.

Fossil Fuel Burning Power Plant From A Far

Fossil Fuels

Fossil Fuels come in many forms including some of the popular fuel sources such as coal, natural gas, and petroleum (crude oil). Most of the power from the United States and most of the world is based on Fossil Fuels. It is a cheap fuel compared to renewable and alternative energy sources, but with new technologies, we are moving towards cleaner and healthier forms of energy and power.
