Global Warming Facts
Global warming can be defined as the increase of earth’s average surface temperature due to the effect of greenhouse gases like methane, nitrous oxide and carbon dioxide. These gases absorb heat and do not let it escape from the earth. Although these gases are required for existence of human life on the earth but excess of them is really very harmful. Global warming is the result of over-emittance of these gases. It is the biggest environmental issue of the last two decades.
