Burning fossil fuels is one of the main culprits that causes climate change because it releases gases into the atmosphere that trap in heat and create the greenhouse effect. According to Klaus S. Lackner, the director of the Center for Negative Carbon Emissions and a professor in School of Sustainable Engineering at Arizona State University,”Dumping carbon dioxide and other greenhouses gases into the air raises their concentrations in the atmosphere and causes gradual warming.” This gradual warming is causing many horrific effects
