Global Warming is a gradual warming of the Earth's atmosphere reportedly caused by the burning of fossil fuels and industrial pollutants due to greenhouse gases, leading to climate change and rising sea levels. Renewable energy, energy efficient buildings and sustainable travel are examples of ways to help avert the greenhouse effect.
Global Warming: Natural or Manmade?
What is Climate Change?
Climate change is a change in the statistical distribution of weather over periods of time that range from decades to millions of years. It can be a change in the average weather or a change in the distribution of weather events around an average (for example, greater or fewer extreme weather events). Climate change may be limited to a specific region, or may occur across the whole Earth.
