Little about Oil


Oil is a fossil fuel. Made from plants and animals that were once alive a long time ago that now lay at the bottom of the ocean. Producing electricity by burning oil is very expensive and can cause the greenhouse gasses. Oil will run out if we don’t use it wisely, and if we don’t then it will run out until there is more made, which takes about a million years. We say that we will not use as much in the future as we use it today.

Another thing about oil if it spills in the ocean it can kill and hurt a lot of sea creatures on earth, just like the oil spill that happened on the gulf coast of Mexico in 2010. Today oil-fired power stations are currently used to provide back up energy. A lot of scientists are trying to figure out ways to make energy without having to use up all of our oil and other non-renewable resources. Oil is used for food, energy, fuel, plastics, and other materials.
