"A fear" can not cite evidence. It's the "many scientists". This eliminates D and E.

Citing evidence that the carbon dioxide content of the atmosphere has increased more than seven percent in the last 30 years, <== this is an initial modifier with a participle, so the subject of the modifier must follow the comma.

many scientists have expressed a fear of destroying forests and continued use of fossil fuels will cause an irreversible shift in Earth’s climatic pattern.

D and E have a modifier problem, as scientists must follow the comma.

(A) many scientists have expressed a fear of destroying forests and continued use of
(B) many scientists have expressed a fear that destruction of forests and continued use of
(C) many scientists have expressed a fear that destruction of forests and continually using

Then the only parallel option is B, so is the correct answer.
