 Briefly summarize the evidence linking human activity to global warming.

What are its potential consequences?



Expert Answer

Step 1

Global warming is a phenomenon of increase in the average temperature of the Earth. Various human activities and solar activities are responsible for Global warming.

When fossil fuels are burnt, lot of carbon dioxide is generated along with the other green house gases which trap more heat thereby rising the temperature of the Earth. Release of aerosols and CFC’s by industries is the second major reason for global warming.

This has led to melting of polar ice caps and decre...
