The disadvantages of fossil fuels are:

  • Burning of coal and petroleum produces a lot of pollutants causing air pollution.
  • Fossil fuels release oxides of carbon, nitrogen, sulphur, etc. that cause acid rain, which affects the soil fertility and potable water.
  • Burning of fossil fuels produce gases such as carbon dioxide that causes global warming.
