Global Warming Facts and Resources
It is generally
accepted that the temperature of the earth has increased rather
significantly over the past 100 years. This phenomenon is known as
global warming. A subject of great environmental significance, it is
mainly caused by the greenhouse effect where green house gases (carbon
dioxide, halogenated fluorocarbons, hydro-fluorocarbons, methane,
nitrous oxide, ozone, perfluorinated carbons, and water vapor) work to
trap energy in the earth's atmosphere, causing it to heat up. Global
warming causes a host of negative effects, affecting animals, weather,
humans, agriculture, the Antarctica, the economy, plants, and more.
According to some environmentalists, some of the most deadly effects of
global warming include the melting of the polar ice caps, more
hurricanes as a result of warmer waters, the spreading of diseases, and
others. Here's more information on the subject of global warming.
