Description: Fossil Fuels: Coal, Oil and Gas are called "fossil fuels" because they have been formed from the fossilized remains of prehistoric plants and animals. They provide around 66% of the world's electrical power, and 95% of the world's total energy demands. How Fossil Fuels Work? Coal is crushed to a fine dust and burnt. Oil and gas can be burnt directly. Coal provides around 28% of our energy, and oil provides 40%. Crude oil (called "petroleum") is easier to get out of the ground than coal, as it can flow along pipes. This also makes it cheaper to transport.
