Environmental issues: Global warming

              Global warming has become the most talked-about environmental issue today because it is changing our economy, health and communities in diverse ways. Scientists warn that if we do not aggressively curb climate change now, the results will likely be disastrous. The basic of climate change is the collection of Carbon dioxide and other global warming pollutants in the atmosphere, like a thickening blanket, trapping the sun's heat and causing the planet to warm up. It cause greatest environmental threat of our time, responsible for rising sea levels, raging storms, searing heat, ferocious fires, severe drought, and punishing floods. It threatens our health, communities, economy, and national security.

3. Global Warming: Indian Estimates of Greenhouse Gas Emission from Agricultural Fields

     Global warming, in turn, leads to regional changes in climate¬related parameters such as rainfall, soil moisture, and sea level. The extensive and frequent occurrence of climatic extremes such as droughts, heat and floods in the last decade in many parts of the world may be the fallout of this. The sea level has risen by 10-20 cm with regional variations (!pCC 2001). Similarly, snow cover is also believed to be gradually decreasing.
