(A) a phenomenon most scientists agree to be
caused by human beings in burning fossil fuels,

(B) a phenomenon most scientists agree that is
caused by fossil fuels burned by human beings,


(C) a phenomenon that most scientists agree is
caused by human beings’ burning of fossil fuels,

(D) which most scientists agree on as a phenomenon
caused by human beings who burn fossil fuels, = awkward construction

(E) which most scientists agree to be a
phenomenon caused by fossil fuels burned by
human beings - a phenomenon needs to be next to the the noun to modify

So B is the answer

urgh.. I knew C was the close contender and could be the winner.

could some one please explain why "C" is superior to "B"
Is it because of the redundant use of "burned by"

OR

Is B saying that "caused by fossil fuels" is an incorrect placement making it feel that global warming is burned by fossil fuels vs. humans???
