Global climate change

Global Warming, what is it? As we all know, global warming is a term used to describe a gradual increase in the average temperature of the Earth's atmosphere and its oceans, a change that is believed to be permanently changing the Earth’s climate forever.

What leads to Global warming? The increasing volumes of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases released by the burning of fossil fuels, land clearing, irresponsible waste disposal, and other human activities, are believed to be the primary sources of the global warming.

What are the effects of Global warming? Changes resulting from global warming may include rising sea levels due to the melting of the polar ice caps, as well as an increase in occurrence and severity of storms and other severe weather events.

Global warming may result to the extinction of many plant and animal species worldwide and maybe even worse it may also lead to the end of the world so please, think about it.
