Global Warming’s Effect on Climate and Natural Disaster

What is Climate Change?

Climate change is known as a major shift in average weather conditions over several decades or more, such as circumstances becoming warmer, wetter, or drier. Climate change is distinguished from natural weather fluctuation by its longer-term tendency.


The major source of human-generated emissions is the combustion of fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and gas for power, heat, and transportation. Deforestation is a second big source, as it releases stored carbon into the atmosphere. Logging, clearcutting, fires, and other kinds of forest degradation are thought to emit an average of 8.1 billion metric tons of CO2 each year, accounting for more than 20% of all CO2 emissions worldwide. Fertilizer usage (a significant source of nitrous oxide emissions), animal raising (cattle, buffalo, sheep, and goats are important methane emitters), and some industrial operations that create fluorinated gases are all examples of human activities that pollute the air.


Despite the fact that our planet's woods and seas absorb greenhouse gases from the atmosphere via photosynthesis and other processes, they
