What is Coal

Coal is a fossil fuel and it is made from plants and animals from long ago. The intense temperature and pressure under hundreds of thousands of pounds of rock, soil, and dirt, make it compress into coal. Coal is grey and black in color and is a sedimentary rock. It is useful when you need electricity and can be burned in a coal power plant. It is widely used because it is plentiful and cheap to get. but when it is burned it releases pollution. Not only that it is also a non-renewable resource, meaning that when there is none left, it is virtually never coming back because it takes millions of years to form. People get coal by opening coal mines that destroys hundreds of acres of land. It also pollutes the atmosphere when you burn the coal to get the electricity
