What are fossil fuels

Coal, oil and natural gas.

Traditionally, a fossil fuel is any hydrocarbon that may be used as a source of energy. Coal, oil and natural gas are the three basic fossil fuels, formed 300 million years ago from organic plant and animal life subjected to great heat and pressure under the ground. They are classes as non-renewable sources of energy.

Note: the energy contained in a fossil fuel is the Sunlight energy that fell on the Earth in the past when the plant and animal life that comprises the fossil fuel was living.

Note: there have been hydrocarbons found in other places in the solar system (for instance Titan and Mars), and geologic sources of hydrocarbons are also possible, though the primary source on Earth is organic.

Longer answer

Fossil fuels are made primarily from anaerobic decomposition of plankton deposited in seas and oceans millions of years ago. There is some small component derived from plants and animals that were buried in prehistoric swamps and then put under high pressure for millions of years from the weight of the Earth's crust.

Over millions of years of time, heat and pressure turned the decomposing remains of the fossilized plants and animal into fuels, which release energy when burned. The fossil fuels include coal, petroleum, and natural gas which contain high percentages of carbon.

More information

Fossil fuels were formed from prehistoric plants and animals that lived millions of years ago. When these living things died, they decomposed and got buried under the layers of mud, rock and sand. Millions of years passed and the dead plants and animals slowly decomposed into organic material and fossil fuels.

The oil we use today comes from the decomposed remains of prehistoric plankton that fell to the seabed of ancient oceans and became entombed in the sediments forming there.

Coal is generally considered to be compressed plant matter from huge trees that became extinct many millions of years ago.

Fossil Fuels are hydrocarbons such as coal, oil and natural gas, sourced from the organic remains of prehistoric organisms. When these fuels are burnt, the energy released can be harnessed to produce electricity, power vehicles, heat homes, cook food and much more. They are also used in the production of important materials such as plastics.

Fossil fuels are called non-renewable resources because, once they have been used-up, it may take the Earth another 100 million years before anymore may be formed, if ever!

Summary:

Fossil fuels are formed by photosynthesis in anaerobic organisms and plants which used the Sun's energy to split carbon dioxide into carbon and oxygen. The age of the organisms and their resulting fossil fuels is typically millions of years and sometimes exceeds 650 million years. Fossil fuels contain high percentages of carbon and include coal, petroleum, and natural gas. When the carbon in the fuel is burnt with oxygen from the atmosphere, the energy that was used in photosynthesis is released and carbon dioxide is re-formed.

Which best describes the difference between Protestant and Catholic beliefs

Protestants believe good works alone cannot gain you salvation.

Protestants do not believe in the pope's authority.

Catholics give spiritual authority to the pope.

.

Catholic AnswerThe best description of the difference is free will. The Catholic Church has taught for two thousand years that God has given us free will to choose to love Him. If we choose to love Him, then we will obey His Commandments, and follow His Will for us, thus enabling our own happiness and eventual salvation when we die.

.

Protestants follow the "reformers" from the sixteenth (and later) centuries who rejected Our Blessed Lord, because they rejected His Body, the Church. They decided that they had free will to tell God HOW they were going to worship Him. Thus they rejected His Church, they rejected the Bible as received and threw out books, in some cases (examples include Martin Luther and the Jehovah Witnesses) altered the text of the Sacred Scriptures to reflect their own beliefs instead of God's. Protestants, with no guiding authority outside of their own conscience are falling apart into, as of 2012, over 30,000 different denominations which believe completely different things from each other and, most especially, what God teaches through His Church. The Catholic Church remains as guaranteed by God who said that He would be with it, and guide it until the end of the world.
The Catholic Church is the Christian Church that was established by Our Blessed Lord on the Apostle Peter (see St. Matthew's Gospel, chapter 16: 17-19), then the Church was born from the blood and water that flowed from His Side as He hung dead on the cross and was pierced by the soldier. Later it was shown to the world at Pentecost with the descent of the Holy Spirit. Our Blessed Lord promised to be with St. Peter and his successors and guaranteed that the gate of Hell would not prevail against them, and that His Church would survive until the end of the world. People who deny the Catholic Church are basically calling Our Blessed Lord a liar who was unable to fulfill His Promises. Protestants are Christians insofar as they are validly baptized and believe in the Nicene Creed, they are actually members of Christ's Catholic Church, although invisibly and in a hampered manner. Protestants who are not baptized validly and do not believe in the Nicene Creed in its traditional interpretation are misusing the word "Christian". . from A Catholic Dictionary, edited by Donald Attwater, Second edition, revised 1957 '''Protestant'''. An adherent of any one of the religious bodies detached from the Catholic Church at the time of the Reformation or of any sect deriving from them; one who professes the doctrines of those reformers. The name was first applied to and accepted by those Lutherans who protested against the decree of the second Diet of Speyer (1529) which ordained that in those states where the new religion had got a hold Catholic doctrine should not be attacked nor the celebration of Mass interfered with, pending the decisions of a council of the Empire. Its use afterwards spread to all reformers and is now generally interpreted as a "protest against the errors of the Church of Rome." It is a gross and misleading mistake to apply the name to members of the dissident Eastern churches, or to "after-Christians" who repudiate Protestantism equally or (nearly equally) with Catholicism. "'''After-Christian'''". An inhabitant of Christendom and a descendant of Christian ancestors who, implicitly or explicitly, repudiates Christianity as a revealed religion. The term is specially used of such people in England and the United States where much contemporary educated public opinion regards religion in a merely humanitarian and pragmatic way. |}

Which is a result of the emissions from the use of fossil fuels
  1. Decrease in agricultural yields
  2. Increase in sea levels
  3. increase in global temps
Where are most of the members of OPEC located
  1. The Middle East, in the area of the Persian Gulf.
  2. Southwest Asia
What is a goal of European social democracy

To protect the middle class, to provide social services, and to address the injustices of the capitalist system.

What is the main goal of OPEC

To control the production of oil

What happens when OPEC reduces the production of oil

If OPEC reduced output, then world supply will fall. Thus, as supply falls, the price will rise, and the profits of oil-producing countries increase.

(In a demand-and-supply graph, the supply curve will shift to the left and you'll see the change in price.)

Why is the Temple Mount a source of argument
  • Jews, Muslims, and Christians all see it as a holy site for different reasons.
  • It was the place of the two Jewish temples, that the last one was ruined by the Romans in 70 AD.
  • The Muslims built there the Dome of the Rock and the Al Aqsa mosque (691 AD, 705 AD).
  • The Jewish dream is to rebuild the Temple.
  • There are initiatives that want to solve this inherent problem.
  • It has religious meaning for many different groups.

Which best describes a difference between Christianity and Judaism

Jews see Jesus of Nazareth as an ordinary Jewish man and preacher living during the Roman occupation of the Holy Land. The Romans executed him - and also executed many other nationalistic and religious Jews for speaking out against Roman authority and abuses.

Christians worship Jesus as a manifestation of God and thus revere what's called the New Testament, and think the coming of Jesus modified the teachings of what is called the Old Testament somewhat.

Both, Jews and Christians hold what Christians call The Old Testament as sacred text, but to Jews it is the only sacred text of the two -- they do not consider the New Testament as having sacred significance.

Christians Jesus pay more attention to the teachings of Jesus in the New Testament than they do the Old Testament. Jew pay no attention to the New Testament.
