Fossil fuels vs renewable energy. Around 500 million years ago was when the major groups of animals appeared on Earth. The US Department of Energy indicates that the total world energy demand amounts to approximately 400 quadrillion British Thermal Units on an annual basis. The latest fossil fuels, like lignite coal and peat, started forming about 5 million years ago, during the Pliocene Period. Since we consume a lot, these fuels do not have time to occur fast enough to satisfy our needs. This means that fossil fuels amount to 88% of the world’s energy needs, namely 350 quadrillions BTUs.

Such organisms and their resulting fossil fuels typically have an age of millions of years, and sometimes more than 650 million years. Fossil fuels contain high percentages of carbon and include petroleum, coal, and natural gas. Commonly used derivatives of fossil fuels include kerosene and propane.
