Ind50 50 10/21/08 2:33:42 PM The Carbon Cycle 51 decomposition of the remains of living things. When something dies, its body (and all the carbon in it) eventually decomposes. Over millions of years, some of the carbon compounds from the remains may be buried far enough underground that heat and pressure convert the carbon compounds into coal, oil, or natural gas. CARBON EMISSIONS Most of the carbon added to the atmosphere by human activity is from the burning of fossil fuels for energy. In the past 50 years, the amount of carbon produced by human activities each year has steadily increased.
