Meaning of FOSSIL in English

is the hardened remains or traces of plant or animal life from a previous geological period preserved in the Earth's crust. Fossil Fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas are created by the decomposition of ancient animal and plant remains. They are finite (limited) resources, and release carbon dioxide and other gases when burned. [insert graph of the fossil fuel age spike]
