Fossil Fuel History

History

They can be traced back to the Carboniferous Period which was part of the Paleozoic Era, between 280 and 345 million years ago.

Fossil fuels use began to rise in the late 18th century. Introduction of the steam engine gave way to faster shipping by sea and railroad networks.

Fossil fuels are 95% of all of our energy.

Advantages Of Fossil Fuels
