Climate change

Climate change is related to changes in the concentration of the greenhouse gases, which trap infra- red radiation from the Earth’s surface and thus cause the greenhouse effect. This effect is a natural phenomenon, which helps maintain a stable temperature and climate on Earth.
Human activities, such as fossil fuel combustion, deforestation, and some industrial processes have led to an increase in greenhouse gases concentration. Consequently, more infrared radiation has been captured in the atmosphere, which causes changes in the air temperature, precipitation pat- terns, sea-level rise, and melting of glaciers.
