Global warming is the increase of the average temperature on earth. As the Earth is getting hotter, disasters like Hurricanes, Droughts and floods are getting more frequent.
Global Warming is the increase in the average temperature of earth’s near surface air and ocean since the mid-of the 20th century and its projected continuation. The intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) concludes that increasing greenhouse gas concentrations resulting from human activity such as fossil fuel burning and deforestation caused most of the observed temperature increase since the middle of 20th century.

An increase in global temperature will cause sea levels to rise and will change the amount and pattern of precipitation probably including expansion of subtropical deserts. The continuing retreat of glaciers, permafrost and sea ice is expected, with warming being strongest in the Arctic. Other likely effects include increases in the intensity of extreme weather events, species extinction, and changes in agricultural fields.
Over the last 100 years, the average temperature of air near the Earth’s surface has risen a little less than 1 degree Celsius. Does not seem all that much? It is responsible for the suspicious increase in storms floods and raging forests fires we have seen in the last ten years, though, say scientists.
There data show that an increase of one degree Celsius makes the Earth warmer now than it has been for at least a thousand years. Out of the 20 warmest years on record, 19 have occurred since 1980. The three hottest years ever observed have all occurred in the last eight years, even.
The latest report from Intergovernmental Panel on climate change delivered a huge blow to global warming skeptics. Leading climate scientists are now...
