Global warming is the increase in the average temperature of the Earth's near-surface air and oceans in recent decades and its projected continuation.

The global average air temperature near the Earth's surface rose 0.74 0.18 C (1.33 0.32 F) during the 100 year period ending in 2005.[1] The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) concludes "most of the observed increase in globally averaged temperatures since the mid-20th century is very likely due to the observed increase in anthropogenic greenhouse gas concentrations"[1] via the greenhouse effect

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) concludes "most of the observed increase in globally averaged temperatures since the mid-20th century is very likely due to the observed increase in anthropogenic greenhouse gas concentrations" via the greenhouse effect. Natural phenomena such as solar variation combined with volcanoes probably had a small warming effect from pre-industrial times to 1950 and a small cooling effect from 1950 onward. These basic conclusions have been endorsed by at least 30 scientific societies and academies of science, including all of the national academies of science of the major industrialized countries. While individual scientists have voiced disagree ...more

The Earth's climate changes in response to external forcing, including variations in its orbit around the Sun (orbital forcing),volcanic eruptions, and atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations.

Global warming is a name used to explain a steady but regular raise in the earths average ground and temperatures of the whole planet earth. The measurements made by the scientists show that the worldwide temperature has raised up by about 1 degree Fahrenheit in the last century.
Global warming does not occur by default. It is purely a man-made dilemma. Each bit of coal, every liter of oil or gas that we humans burn up adds to the pack of gases in the atmosphere that surround the Earth like an ever thickening blanket. This is why the Scientists suppose that an increase in carbon dioxide emissions will steer the situation to further global warming.
We are already experiencing the effects of Global Warming and the changes occurring because of it. We can see the Glaciers are melting, plants and animals are dying, and the figure of harsh hurricanes and droughts are increasing like never before. If the global warming continues, we can imagine even more terrible results.
