This page listed various global warming articles, features and news along with important data and information related to this topic. But before going to the listing lets find out some information and facts on this topic:
What is global warming?
In simple terms, global warming is gradual increase in earth’s temperature. Over the past century, earth’s average surface temperature has risen about 2.0 degrees Fahrenheit (1.1 degrees Celsius). This happened due to huge release of different greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, ozone, water vapor etc. to the atmosphere. These gases cause greenhouse effect by trapping some part of solar radiation in the earth’s atmosphere and increasing its average temperate.

Industrialization and various human activities are mainly responsible for this huge accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, although some natural activities like volcanos, forest fires etc. also contribute to green house gases in the atmosphere.

Global warming is already leaving its negative and harmful effect on various natural habitats, ecosystems as well as on global climate. Increase in polar ice melting, increase in hurricane and storms, increase in forest fire and scarcity of food and water are just few negative consequences of global warming.

As we, mainly the developed nations are mainly responsible for this global warming phenomena, it is now up to us to put a stop in this. It is possible to slow down and cut down on greenhouse gas production. Solution depends on a combined international effort to tackle it. In the 2015 UN climate change conference in Paris, out of 195 countries, 185 have countries came together to agree on the new climate deal that included the goal of keeping global temperature increase “well below” two degrees Celsius. They announced measures to limit or reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by 2025 or 2030. Other global warming solutions include using more renewable energy; working towards green and sustainable transportation sector; investing in energy efficient low- carbon technologies; reducing deforestation and forest degradation and finally living a green personal lifestyle.
