What are Causes and Effects of Global Warming?

Causes

Due to industrialization and urbanization, there is increased burning of fossil fuels and deforestation

This has lead to increase in greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide and methane in the atmosphere

Also there is increase in cattle production which release high amount of methane in environment

Slide25.JPG

Effects

These gases have greenhouse effect (trap heat of the sun)

It has lead to increase in global temperature

This has lead to our glaciers getting melted and water level increasing

In future, many cities may get submerged in water due to this

When did Global Warming Start?

It started with Industrial Revolution of 1750's

After this, number of industries and factories came into existence
