Sunday Sky

Sunrise is on the way. It may sound strange, but crude oil is really a form of sun energy. About a hundred to two hundred million years ago the formation of oil begins in warm, shallow oceans that were then present on Earth. In these oceans, small animals called zooplankton and plants called phytoplankton died and fell to the floor of the ocean. As they got buried by sediments, they were transformed into shale. As pressure and temperature increase, the shale transformed into oil and, if the temperature was high enough, into natural gas.

  4. Un nuevo amanecer que va a evitar el uso de luz artificial. Pero estaría bien que los humanos nos decidieramos de una vez a cambiar una fuente de energía contaminante como el petróleo por las energías limpias y renovables. Nos va en ello la salud del planeta y la nuestra.
    Un abrazo.
