Global warming is a phenomenon of climate change or the long-term heating of the Earth’s climate system. It can be characterized by a general increase in temperatures, observed since the pre-industrial period (between 1850 and 1900) due to human activities, primarily fossil fuel burning, which increases heat-trapping greenhouse gas levels in the atmosphere. The term Global warming is used interchangeably with the term climate change, though the latter refers to both human and naturally produced warming and the effects it has on our planet. It also modifies the weather balances and ecosystems. It is directly linked to the increase of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere, worsening the greenhouse effect. The average temperature has increased Earth’s global surface by about 1 degree Celsius, a value that is currently increasing by 0.2 degrees Celsius per decade. Since the beginning of the statistical surveys in 1850, Each of the last three decades has been warmer than all previous decades. Scientists expect an increase of between 1.5° and 5.3°C (34.7° to 41.5°F) in average temperature by 2100, due to the pace of current CO2 emissions.
Here are some consequences that show the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Global Warming or Climate change can and will affect the globe in several big ways. Some of the ways are mentioned below
