Global warming is the increase in the average temperature of the Earth's nearsurface
air and oceans since the mid-20th century and its projected continuation. The
IPCC also concludes that variations in natural phenomena such as solar radiation and
volcanism produced most of the warming from pre-industrial times to 1950 and had a
small cooling effect afterward. These basic conclusions have been endorsed by more than
40 scientific societies and academies of science, including all of the national academies
of science of the major industrialized countries. Measurements taken from all over the
world, however, have shown that the global climate is changing. In the last 100 years the
atmosphere has warmed up by about half a degree Celsius. Also during this time humans
have been emitting extra greenhouse gases, which are the result of burning fossil fuels.
Global warming is caused by green house gases, which trap in the sun’s infrared
rays in the earth’s atmosphere, which in turn heat up the earth’s atmosphere. These green
house effect warming is called as global warming. As the climate changes, the
composition and distribution of ecosystems will alter and individual species will respond
to the changes. The effect of global warming is very evident on the animal kingdom also.
Some animals have become extinct due to loss of their natural habitat or their inability to
evolve to the rapid changes in the climate. The effect of global warming can be felt on
seasons too. There is shift in season cycle, as the summers are getting longer than the
winters. Global warming is also effecting the crop production, as the crops are getting
destroyed by the sudden change in temperatures or sudden on set of rains. Also the flash
floods and... [continues]
