The major cause of environmental pollution is the use of: (a) hydrogen as fuel (b) biomass energy (c) ocean energy (d) fossil fuels

(d) fossil fuels


The burning of fossil fuels leads to the production of many acidic gases such as sulphur dioxide and nitrogen dioxides. These gases cause acid rain which damages trees, buildings and plants, reduces the fertility of the soil, and also possess a danger to aquatic life. It releases a large amount of carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide gases which damages the environment by increasing the greenhouse effect. It also produces smoke and a lot of ash which pollute the air.
