Global warming is the worldwide phenomenon where the net temperature of the earth's atmosphere is believed to have elevated for the past decades. One of the main causes of global warming is the increase of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. These greenhouse gases absorb the heat from the sun and re-radiated in different directions thus preventing much of the heat to exit the earth's atmosphere. The main sources of greenhouse gases are from human activity such as production of fossil fuels, pollution and deforestation.
