    Coal, oil and gas are called "fossil fuels" because they have been formed from the organic remains of

    prehistoric plants and animals. Coal is crushed to a fine dust and burnt.Oil and gas can be burnt directly. The steam that has passed through the power station's turbines has to be cooled, to condense it back into water before it can be pumped round again. This is what happens in the huge "cooling towers" seen at power stations. Some power stations are built on the coast, so they can use sea water to cool the steam instead. However, this warms the sea and can affect the environment, although the fish seem to like it.
