And if nothing is done very soon to limit greenhouse emissions it is set to increase exponentially in decades to come, and the temperature is expected to increase of 3 degrees celsius. In my research below we will try to understand the causes of Global warming, their consequences and impact on our ecosystems. Issues We will talk about the root causes of all these issues, what are greenhouse gases, why are they so dangerous, what caused them to increase. We will also touch on the consequences global warming have on our ecosystems, on the environment ,and the impacts they have on living species on earth. Finally we will look at the countries that have caused most rise in greenhouse gases and those that are the most impacted by global warming. Causes of Global Warming The number one cause of global
