Climate Change

Climate change refers to the increase in average temperature in the atmosphere and ocean. The rise in carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases due to human activities such as burning fuel, deforestation, and farming drives changes in climatic patterns. The greenhouse effect is when the Sun’s heat is absorbed by greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the atmosphere and directed back to the Earth’s surface to increase heat. Too much greenhouse gas in the atmosphere traps the Sun’s heat and radiates it back to the surface. It causes the Earth to warm up above the average and is described as global warming.
