How Does Burning Fossil Fuel Cause Global Warming?

By burning fossil fuels we release carbon into the atmosphere which bonds to Oxygen, producing CO2. The CO2 is a greenhouse gas that acts like a mirror and traps the Sun's heat, not allowing it to escape back into space after it has bounced off the Earth. Therefore, too much greenhouse gas in our atmosphere traps too much heat and the global temperature increases significantly, causing global warming. :-)

Fossil fuels are composed entirely of carbon,when we burned or when the fumes are inhaled to cause cancer in humans, and the way they cause global warming is that when we burn them they release Carbon back in the form of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and also effect the greenhouse gasses which act like a blanket and cause this increase in global temperature.

The burning of fossil fuels (coal, oil and gas) adds to the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and accelerates the greenhouse effect. Other gases are related such as sulphur dioxide; this also has an effect on the environment

By burning fossil fuels we release carbon into the atmosphere which then mixes with the oxygen creating C02 which is a greenhouse gas which can affect our atmosphere and cause global warming!!

Fossil fuels are made entirely of carbon therefore if burned they create carbon dioxide which is then released into the air and can damage the ozone layer and atmosphere dramatically.

When fossil fuels are burnt the released fumes (CO2) act like a blanket that keeps the sun’s heat  in.
