# Explain Why Fossil Fuels Are Exhaustible Natural Resources. - Science

Explain why fossil fuels are exhaustible natural resources.

They require high temperature and pressure for their formation, which cannot be provided in the laboratory. Thus, fossils are limited. Therefore, the use of fossil fuels at this rate will lead to their exhaustion.
