Oil & coal come from plants/trees that were around in prehistoric times. As layers of earth build up on top of their remains, they are subjected to immense pressure and oil/coal is the result.

It takes millions of years for that to happen which is why oil & coal are not classed as renewable energy sources.

I believe natural gas is a by-product of the same process.
