Fossil Fuels
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     Caption: Mining coal in Wyoming
 
2     Have you heard of peat? How about coal, natural gas, and oil? These are all fossil fuels.
 
3     Fossil fuels give us energy. They come from things that were once living. They formed over thousands or millions of years.
 
4     Fossil fuels are very efficient sources of energy. Our cars depend on them. Most countries use them to produce electricity to power homes and businesses. They are all formed from decayed organic matter.
 
5     Oil can be burned to release energy. Many people use it to heat their homes. It can be refined into other energy products such as gasoline and kerosene.
