Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Climate Change and Global Warming Climate Change and Global Warming Global warming is the increase of Earth'saverage surface temperature due to greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels or from deforestation, which trap heat that would otherwise escape from Earth. Greenhouse gases keep heat close to the earths surface making it livable for humans and animals. However, global warming is happening largely due to an over-emittance of these gases and fossil fuels (natural oil, gasoline, coal). With the start of industry in the 1700's, humans began emitting more fossil fuelfrom coal, oil, and gas to run our cars, trucks, and factories. By driving a smarter car, you will not only save on gas, but help prevent global warming. There is more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere today than at any point in the last 800,000 years. Since 1870, global sea levels have risen by about 8 inches. Global warming puts coral reefs in danger as warmer water increases the possibility of coral diseases and the rising sea levels makes it more difficult for coral to receive adequate sunlight. In the last 650,000 years there have been seven cycles of glacial advance and retreat, with the abrupt end of the last ice age about 7,000 years ago marking the beginning of the modern climate era and of human civilization. Most of these climate changesare attributed to very smallvariations in Earths orbit thatchange the amount of solar energy our planet receives. The Earth is heating up because gases produced from vehicles, power plants, deforestation, and other sources are building up in the atmosphere, acting like a thick blanket over our planet.
