Main Physical Causes of Climate Change and Global Warming - A General Overview

Biplab Das | Utpal Khara | Aditya Bandyopadhyay

Abstract: The signs of global warming are becoming ever more prominent, casual observers of the media in the India. Weather changes all the time. It is highly dynamic in nature. The average pattern of weather, called climate, usually remains uniform for centuries if it is left to itself. However, the Earth is not being left alone. People are taking multi-dimensional actions that are gradually changing the morphology, physiology, and anatomy of the planet Earth and its climate in large scale. The single human activity that is most likely to have a large impact on the climate is the burning of fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas. Citizens are in denial about climate change, refusing to take responsibility for controlling their emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) and the other greenhouse gases (GHGs) that cause global warming. Although it is true that the federal government remains stalemated on how to deal with climate change, the notion that no climate action is taking place in this country is erroneous. The most intriguing story is what has been happening in state legislatures, at city council meetings, and in corporate boardrooms, as well as on college campuses, in community groups, and in a range of other local settings. Across the nation, numerous climate action programs are moving aggressively to reduce emissions of GHGs. It is rare that a week goes by without the announcement of a new initiative among recent clippings.
