These two pictures shows you that fossil fuels make really good energy to the earth and makes it smile for using it instead of the others that people use that is kind of bad for all of use including all animals that dont want to live in a dirty planet they want to live in a nice clean planet and make it a happy place for everyone. Coal is found in many of the lower 48 states of the U.S. and throughout the rest of the world. coal is mined out of the ground using various methods. Some coal mines are dug by sinkin vertical or horizontal shafts deep underground, and coal miners travel by elavators or trains deep under ground to dig the coal.The layers are then restored after the coal is taken away.The coal is then shipped by trains and boatsand even in pipielines. in pipelines, the coal is groundup and mixed with water to make whats called a slurry.the_sun.jpgfossil_fuels.gif

The Carboniferous Period occurred from about 360 to 286 million years ago. At the time, the land was covered with swamps filled with huge trees, ferns and other large

leafy plants, similar to the picture above. The water and seas were filled with algae - the green stuff that forms on a stagnant pool of water. Algae is actually millions of very small plants.
Some deposits of coal can be found during the time of the dinosaurs. For example, thin carbon layers can be found during the late Cretaceous Period (65 million years ago) - the time of Tyrannosaurus Rex. But the main deposits of fossil fuels are from the Carboniferous Period. For more about the various geologic eras, go to This a picture of a fossil fuels in cartoon version.
