Last Time the Globe Warmed
Climate change includes both global warming driven by human-induced emissions of greenhouse gases and the resulting large-scale shifts in weather leads to more frequent and intense drought, storms, heat waves, rising sea levels, melting glaciers and warming oceans
Causes for rising emissions
- Burning coal, oil and gas produces carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide.
- Increasing livestock farming
- Fertilisers containing nitrogen produce nitrous oxide emissions.
- Fluorinated gases are emitted from equipment and products that use these gases.
