Introduction

Global warming is a problem caused by us, humans and is one of the main issues being discussed worldwide in all forums because the consequences could be catastrophic. We can define it as an increase of the average temperature of Earth's atmosphere and oceans. We really should be aware about this and be more thoughtful on this subject, we do not reason on what happened and we are more neglected throwing garbage and not taking care of the environment.

Global Warming

The average temperature of Earth has been warming up since 1840, coinciding with the start of the industrial revolution. However, we can not establish a cause and effect relations, because the atmosphere does not react so quickly. During the decade of the 80's started to be clear that had begun a warmer period, so that the discussion moved towards global warming that would lead us soon to a planet unbearable in which the oceans would boil. The taste for the catastrophic end seems endless. But today they not exaggerate so much about the subject. We know that global warming is evolving slowly, is part of Earth's natural process, but we are contributing to this process and we are not being responsible with our environment. “For almost two decades, the United Nations has sponsored annual global talks, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, an international treaty signed by 194 countries to cooperatively discuss global climate change and its impact". (Nytimes.com, 2012) Is not a new issue, is known worldwide and is exploring options to minimize the impact.
