It is a true statement. Burning fossil fuels emits a number of harmful gases which are harmful to both the environment and human health. They release carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, into the atmosphere. Greenhouse gases trap heat from the sun in the Earth's atmosphere, causing temperatures to rise which results in global warming. Sulfur dioxide (SO2) results from the result of burning coal, contribute to acid rain and the formation of harmful particulate matter.
