Today, one of the major threats that our planet is facing is the climate change. The temperature of the earth is warming day by day. According to many scientific researches, conducted on climate change have resulted that sudden climatic changes are the cause of global warming in the environment. The term ‘Global Warming’ is defined as the gradual increase in the temperature of the earth’s atmosphere due to the greenhouse effects which results in the corresponding changes in the climate. According to IPCC’s research, Earth’s global temperature is increasing by 1.4 degrees F since 1880. As a result of global warming, there has been occurring imbalance in the environment. Through this research paper, I expect to find out how are the climatic changes due to global warming a threat to our planet? It covers all the effects, present and future consequences of global warming, impact of global warming on the climate, etc. There are various human and natural causes of global warming. All these causes contribute to the amount of greenhouse gases which are the major cause of warming of the earth atmosphere. Human activities like deforestation, burning of fossil fuels, emissions from manufacturing industries, emissions of greenhouse gases like CO2, CFCs, NO2 and halocarbons which is a group of gases containing fluorine, chlorine and bromine. Burning of fossil fuels like petroleum, coal, etc. release carbon which combines with oxygen in the air to form carbon dioxide which is a
