Energy obtained from fossil fuels is not green energy.

#### Solution

Fossil fuels are non-renewable sources of energy. These are getting depleted rapidly. Also, the usage of fossil fuels for energy generation adversely impacts the environment and living beings. Burning of fossil fuels like coal, natural gas, etc. leads to the emission of gases and soot particles in the environment which pollute the air and cause many respiratory diseases. For example, incomplete combustion of some fossil fuels leads to the formation of carbon monoxide which affects the health of living beings. Also, the burning of fossil fuels releases carbon dioxide into the environment which is the main greenhouse gas. Thus, it can be said that energy obtained from fossil fuels is not green energy.
