Global warming and climate change have caused a continued rise on the average global temperatures. It is believed to be generated by natural variability and human influences resulting an increase in greenhouse gases such as CO2 emissions which are believed to be one of the leading causes. Humans are significantly responsible for climate change and global warming. Therefore, there are many risks have been surrounding the world and this essay will elaborate on them. There is a confusion among some people in the differences between global warming and climate change. “Climate change refers to any significant change in measures of climate” (such as temperature or precipitation). The change occurs due to human or natural actions. Global warming is that growth in the global temperature in the air. “Global warming is just one aspect of global climate change, albeit a very important one.” (United States Environmental Protection Agency, 2012) There is a correlation between greenhouse gases, global warming and climate change that contains many influences on the Earth whether global temperature increases or decreases. (United States Environmental Protection Agency, 2012). Greenhouse gases are those gases in the Earth’s atmosphere to keep heat and warmth instead of wasting it by reflecting sun rays to space. That makes the earth a suitable place to live in. Since heat and warmth are trapped and gaseous emissions increase rapidly that could modify the global temperature to cause global
