How does the carbon dioxide get into coal?

    Carbon dioxide is actually not found in coal, it is just produced during the combustion of coal.  Coal is a compound made up of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen, and during the combustion of such compounds, CO2 and H2O are naturally produced along with heat.  It is the nature of all combustion reactions of hydrocarbons to produce these products, so the carbon dioxide problem with coal does not stem from the coal itself, but the burning of the coal.
