(A) increased atmospheric carbon dioxide as a result of burning

(B) increased atmospheric carbon dioxide resulting from the combustion of

(C) increasing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere resulting from the combustion of
- 'increasing' not required as we're not emphasizing continuous action

(D) carbon dioxide in the atmosphere that increase from burning
- lenghty and modifier should stick close to the noun carbon dioxide

(E) atmospheric carbon dioxide that increased from burning
- 'increased from burning' is not idiomatic

Between A and B, I'll go with B. increased Co2 resulting from is better.
Not too sure, what's the OE on this one.
