For example, it could show up as a change in climate normal (expected average values for temperature and precipitation) for a given place and time of year, from one decade to the next (NOAA, 2007). Global warming refers to the gradual warming of global-average temperatures due to the slowly increasing concentrations of man-made atmospheric greenhouse gases, primarily carbon dioxide. But global warming can alternatively refer to simply the observation of warming (Weatherstreet, 2013). The effects of global warming are already visible in many area of the world. For example, in Montanas Glacier National Park, where about 150 glaciers were once located, only 25 glaciers larger than 25 acres remain, according to the U.S Geological Survey (Bradford. A., 2014).
