This research enhances the idea of every student on how to deal different economic and nature problem of the society or of the world. The research paper refers to the surveys and observation of every individual in a group. It is one way of showing the outputs of every member in order to create great research with a knowledgeable content. The possible outcome of a research reflects the ability of every student on how to observe particular problem.

WHAT IS BURNING OF FOSSIL FUELS?
* Burning fossil fuels, especially coal, is a dirty process. Incomplete combustion of coal and oil produces particulate matter. Heavier particulates produce an annoying dirty grit, and lighter particulates can be inhaled deeply and become a health hazard. In addition to the desired combustion of organic molecules, impurities such as sulfur also burn and produce potentially dangerous oxides. Since the air is made of 80% nitrogen, nitrogen is combusted along with the fuel at high temperatures, releasing nitrous oxides. Since fossil fuels are composed mainly of carbon by weight, all fossil fuels produce carbon dioxide when burned. In the atmosphere, the sulfur and nitrous oxides produce sulfuric acid and nitric acid, respectively, which can lead to acid rain. The carbon dioxide helps trap heat in the atmosphere — contributing to the potential warming of the earth. In this lecture-discussion we will examine major local, regional, and global environmental effects of burning fossil fuels. These are respectively particulates, smog and acid rain, and global warming. The importance of particulates has long been acknowledged, and major particulate emissions control measures have been launched in many countries. Noticeable average global warming trend in the twentieth century.
HOW CAN BURNING OF FOSSIL FUELS CAUSE AIR POLLUTION?
1. The combustion of fossil fuels results in the formation of carbon dioxide, which is released into the atmosphere. Thus, concentration of CO2 is increasing in the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide has to ability to absorb infrared radiation emitted by the earth and re-radiate it back. This effect is known as ‘greenhouse effect’. It is speculated that if the concentration of CO2 in atmosphere increases significantly this could have effect of increasing the average temperature of the earth.
2. Combustion of coal, gasoline and other fossil fuels in the presence of insufficient supply of oxygen liberates carbon monoxide and unburnt hydrocarbons. Carbon monoxide (CO) combines with hemoglobin in the blood to form carboxy-haemoglobin and makes it incapable of transporting oxygen. Many hydrocarbons are carcinogenic and hence, are serious health hazards.
3. Coal contains some compounds of sulphur and nitrogen. During combustion these compounds are oxidized to from the oxides of sulphur and nitrogen, which are corrosive and poisonous. During rains these oxides dissolve in rain water and are known to cause ‘acid rain’.
4. When gasoline burns in internal combustion engines, a very high temperature is produced, at this high temperature, nitrogen and oxygen combine to form oxides of nitrogen such as NO and...
