Abstract

Coal, oil, and natural gas are examined in depth through a short video documentary. We will begin by outlining production methods to inform the viewer of basic context. Following a description of production methods, we will discuss excavation and harvesting methods. Establishing an understanding of these methods will improve comprehension of their environmental impacts. The historical and forecasted uses of fossil fuels are briefly discussed, culminating in a discussion of environmental impacts. After viewing this documentary, individuals should have a basic grasp of how fossil fuels are formed, harvested, and processed and of how they affect the world around us.
