The Earth's atmosphere is made up of different layers. Gases such as carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, chlorofluorocarbons, methyl bromide, etc make the atmosphere work like a greenhouse. These gases trap heat emitted by infrared wavelengths from the earth's surface. This phenomenon is called greenhouse effect, and is responsible for the average temperature at the earth surface being 15 C rather the -15 C the temperature it would be it there no atmosphere.
Global Warming and Climate Change introduce some of the effects of climate change. In addition, this book attempts to provide insights into what governments, companies, international institutions, and other organizations are institutions, and other organizations are attempting to do about this issue, as well as the challenges they face. Some of the major conferences in recent years are also discussed.
