    What are the Causes of Global Warming?

    Causes Of Global Warming : The accumulation of  heat trapping gases in the atmosphere is the reason of rising global temperature known as ‘global warming‘. These heat trapping gases are known as greenhouse gases.         Greenhouse Gases Greenhouse gases include carbon di oxide, methane, nitrous oxide and chlorofluorocarbons etc. In the atmosphere these gases act as a blanket, trap heat radiations reflected by the earth which in their absence would go back to atmosphere and eventually increase the global temperature. Greenhouse Effect Sun emits electromagnetic radiations. When the radiation strikes the earth surface a part of it is absorbed while rest is emitted back as infrared rays…
