Description
Coal storage area in an unidentified location of Long Beach. This photo shows a huge mountain of coal being restrained within an equally huge storage area. Coal is a fossil fuel that is composed primarily of carbon along with other assorted elements including sulfur. It is extracted from the ground by coal mining (either underground or surface mining). It is primarily used as a solid fuel to produce electricity and heat through combustion, and is the largest single source of fuel for electricity worldwide. But it is also the largest source of carbon dioxide emissions, which is believed to be the primary cause of global warming.
