Global Warming and Environmental Change

The Earth's atmosphere has been changing all through the history. An overwhelming scientific consensus maintains that climate change is primarily due to the human use of fossil fuels, which releases carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the air. The gases trap heat within the atmosphere, which can have a range of effects on ecosystems, inclusive of rising sea levels, extreme weather events, and droughts that render landscapes more susceptible to wildfires. Even small increases in Earth’s temperature caused by means of local weather change can have severe effects. While consensus amongst nearly all scientists, scientific organizations, and governments is that climate change is happening and is triggered by means of human activity, a small minority of voices questions the validity of such assertions and prefers to cast doubt on the preponderance of the evidence. Climate change deniers often claim that recent adjustments attributed to human activity can be viewed as a phase of the natural variations in Earth’s local weather and temperature that it is tough or impossible to set up a direct connection between climate change and any weather event, such as a hurricane. While the latter is generally true, decades of information and evaluation assist the actuality of weather change—and the human factor in this process.
