  • The carbon atom starts as fossil fuels being burned in a factory
  • The carbon atoms turn into carbon dioxide and go into the air
  • trees absorb carbon dioxide and their carbon dioxide filled leaves fall to the ground.
  • Other animals eat the carbon dioxide filled leaves as part of their daily diet
  • When that animal dies for whatever reason the carbon dioxide inside of it will transfer itself into the ground
  • Over millions of years the carbon dioxide in the ground will turn into diamonds, coal or fossil fuels
