Best Answer

The three main fossil fuels are coal, oil and natural gas.

Alike:

  • They are all non-renewable
  • They all emit carbon dioxide, one of the greenhouse gases.
  • They all cause global warming.

Different:

  • Coal is solid, and emits the most Carbon dioxide (CO2)
  • Oil is liquid, and emits less carbon dioxide than coal.
  • Natural gas is gas, and emits less carbon dioxide than any other fossil fuel.
