Why is oil sometimes referred to as "liquid sunshine"?
This may have something to do with the sun... i am not sure. HELP. ME!!!!
Because oil is made of decomposed plants and since plants get their energy from the sun, oil is basically energy that came from the sun.
Sunshine is energy-- so is oil
it makes people happy when it springs out of the ground just like sunshine
The_wise_man is correct: the energy stored in oil was originally plant matter that was formed using the energy of the sun (photosynthesis and all that). Coal is similar.
You have to get sunshine every day so you get vitamin D. Liquid Sunshine is a liquid form of vitamin D. You can get it at health food stores.
