When fossil fuels (coal and petroleum based fuels like petrol, diesel etc.) are burnt, they produce CO2, CO, water vapours, SO2, oxides of nitrogen. Though CO2 is not a poisonous gas but it is a green house 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.
