Discussion 1Global WarmingThe overall temperature on earth is increasing due to burning of fossil fuels, deforestation and industrial waste.

Anthropogenic and natural activities like burning of fossils, volcanic eruptions, glacial melting and deforestation release these gases into the atmosphere which cause a slight increase in earth's temperature and changes heat balance. This process of warming the earth is called global warming [World Meteorological Organization (2014)].

As a result, earth's atmospheric temperature increases. This effect of global warming is called greenhouse ef
