On a clear night if you sit outside and look up at the sky you will sometimes see a small point of light moving steadily acrosss the sky - this is usually a satellite. The International Space Station is particularly easy to see as it is so big.

If they burned fossil fuels they'd be even more inefficient than they already are. Of course, it takes a lot of energy, and results in a lot of greenhouse gases and environmental damage, to assemble a rocket - heavy machinery, mining the materials, extracting hydrogen, often incorporating precious metals and rare earths, but a rocket launch isn't a major impact on the environment itself.
