A fossil fuel is a fuel formed by natural processes, such as anaerobic decomposition of buried dead organisms, containing energy originating in ancient photosynthesis. Such organisms and their resulting fossil fuels typically have an age of millions. Such organisms and their resulting fossil fuels typically have an age of millions of years, and sometimes more than 650 million years. Fossil fuels contain high percentages of carbon and include petroleum, coal, and natural gas. Commonly used derivatives of fossil fuels include kerosene and propane.

Energy use is one of the most important issues of our age. This new series looks at different sources of power that are in use today.

ENERGY SOURCES Energy types include both the categories we use to group energy sources (like fossil fuels, alternatives, and renewables) and the resources we derive energy from (like oil, solar, and nuclear). Each type of energy has unique characteristics and requires different technologies to convert it from a raw resource to a usable form of energy. Fossil fuel is a term used to describe a group of energy sources that were formed when ancient plants and organisms were subject to intense heat and pressure over millions of years.
Fossil fuel is a common word used to refer to buried flammable geologic deposits of organic substances. For an energy source to be renewable, it must have the characteristic of being replenished on a human timescale
Fossil fuel is a common word used to refer to buried flammable geologic deposits of organic substances. They are created by decomposed plants and animals which were altered to natural gas, heavy oils or crude oil due to being exposed to a lot of heat and pressure in the earth’s crust over millions of years. For an energy source to be renewable, it must have the characteristic of being replenished on a human timescale. But as discussed earlier, with regards to how fossil fuels are formed, it take thousands to millions of years to create. In the current world, the consumption rate of fossil fuels is however far greater than the rate at which they are formed.
Each energy source sets strict limits on what kinds of societies can succeed, and each kind of society rewards specific values. But if our fossil-fuel world favors democratic, open societies, the ongoing revolution in energy capture means that our most cherished values are very likely to turn out not to be useful any more. Foragers, Farmers, and Fossil Fuels offers a compelling new argument about the evolution of human values, one that has far-reaching implications for how we understand the past-and for what might happen next.
