Atmospheric Damage Caused By Fossil Fuels

The recovery, shipment and handling of hydrocarbons cause damage to the land and sea. After recovery, the combustion of fossil fuels causes damage to the atmosphere. The major reason for damage is fact that the process is open ended. Fossil fuels are recovered, reacted with oxygen from the atmosphere to product energy. The solid waste is disposed of in landfills. The gaseous waste products (carbon dioxide, water and toxins) are irreversibly vented into the atmosphere. The air pollution produced by the combustion harms the air in three different ways: 1- Immediate short-term air pollution (commonly referred to as smog), 2- Acid rain, and 3- Carbon dioxide.
