. Burning fossil fuels results in global warming. Give reasons to justify this statement


Best Answer

Ans. When fossil fuels (coal and petroleum based fuels like petrol, diesel etc.) are burnt, they produce C02, CO, water vapours, S02, oxides of nitrogen.

Though C02 is not a poisonous gas but it is a greenhouse gas which traps sun's heat energy falling on the earth. The burning of more and more of fossil fuels is increasing the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere causing increased greenhouse effect leading to global warming.
