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???
