first fossil fuels are removed from the earth
then the fossil fuels are refined
the refined product is burned and boils water to form steam
the steam turns a turbine which forms electricity
Oil is a common type of fossil fuel
It is drilled out of the earth and then refined
it can become gas,oil,deisel,etc.
one place it can be drilled is the ocean on giant oil platforms.
One day we will run out of oil and have to find a new energy source.
Natural gas is also obtained by drilling.
It can be used to heat homes.
it is a clean burning gas with few emmitions unlike gas
very comon resource
found in most places on earth
puts out greenhouse gasses
highly flamable causes accidents
millions of people reley on gas for cars
most of the worlds power comes from fossil fuels
lots of people need kerosene for heat
comparison to nuclear
nuclear has no emitions but fossil fuels have lots
nuclear has released raidiation but fossil fuels cant
nuclear accounts for just a little bit of power unlike fossil fuels
overall fossil fuels work good but because of the emitions we need a new wenergy source
energy sources such as wind,wave,hydro, and nuclear work much better
they produce energy but have no emitions
