Fossil Fuels – Coal, Natural Gas & Oil

The majority of America’s energy, over 85%, comes from fossil fuels such as coal, natural gas and oil.  Fossil fuels earn their name because they were formed over millions of years by the heat from the Earth’s core and pressure from rock and soil on the remains (or “fossils”) of dead plants and animals.  Unfortunately, when burned to release the energy stored inside, fossil fuels emit dangerous pollutants including ozone, particulate matter and carcinogens.
