Do now

DO NOW

  • 1. What is the layer beneath the Earth’s crust called?

  • 2. Which type of rocks are formed when layers of sediments and animal remains are cemented and compacted in water?

  • 3. Which type of rocks are formed from great heat and pressure deep within the Earth?


Fossil fuels

GOAL

  • To be able to distinguish between renewable and nonrenewable resources


What are fossil fuels

What are fossil fuels?


Fossil fuels1

What are fossil fuels?

1. Formed millions of years ago

2. Made from dead, compressed plant and animal remains

Fossil Fuels


Fossil fuels2

What are fossil fuels?

3. Heat and pressure combines the remains with mud, sand and clay

4. Provide 90% of light and heat used to run homes and cars

Fossil Fuels


Fossil fuels3

3 types of fossil fuels

Coal

Oil

Natural Gas

Fossil Fuels


Fossil fuels4

Why are fossil fuels useful?

1. Made of hydrocarbons that burn well

Wood doesn’t produce as much heat and energy when burned

Fossil Fuels


Fossil fuels5

Why are fossil fuels useful?

2. Easy to store, transport and use

Fossil Fuels


Fossil fuels6

Problems with fossil fuels

1. When burned, release dangerous pollutants into the air

Fossil Fuels


Fossil fuels7

Problems with fossil fuels

2. Nonrenewable- once used up they are gone (take millions of years to replenish)

  • Work with a partner and fill in the missing information on your fossil fuel summary chart


Fossil fuels9

Coal

Solid form

Found buried in the Earth

Fossil Fuels


Fossil fuels10

Coal

Four Types

1. Peat (soft, smokes, doesn’t burn well)

Fossil Fuels


Fossil fuels11

Coal

Four Types

2. Lignite- brown, woody, not much energy

Fossil Fuels


Fossil fuels12

Coal

Four Types

3. Bituminous- dark brown, common, found deep in Earth

Fossil Fuels


Fossil fuels13

Coal

Four Types

4. Anthracite- black, hard, brittle, uncommon

Fossil Fuels


Fossil fuels14

Oil

Liquid form

AKA Petroleum

Found in areas once covered with oceans

Fossil Fuels


Fossil fuels15

Oil

Found where animal and plant remains layered, and were changed into oil by heat and pressure

Fossil Fuels


Fossil fuels16

Oil

Found by drilling wells into rock deposits

Drill where oil seeps to surface or where top rocks test positive for carbon

Fossil Fuels


Fossil fuels17

Natural Gas

Liquid form

Found near oil- rises to top of oil because its less dense

Fossil fuel uses

Uses for coal

Generates electricity

Fossil Fuel Uses


Fossil fuel uses1

Uses for oil

Transportation

Heat

Road asphalt

Plastics

Fabrics

Medicines

Building materials

Fossil Fuel Uses


Fossil fuel uses2

Uses for natural gas

Transportation

Heating homes

Least expensive, cleanest

4. By 2080 we will have used up almost all fossil fuels

That have taken 500 million years for the earth to create

Drilling Paradise Dry

  • For homework, write a response to the “Drilling Paradise Dry” article- Do you agree or disagree with drilling for oil in Alaska- support your statement with several facts from the article.

  • Use the article response sheet
