ABSTRACT
The article presents a discussion on global warming. Global warming is no longer just a matter of scientific intrigue. Today, it is much more than a distant concern. It is a reality that must be addressed with a sense of urgency. Its consequences are already being felt by millions around the world. It is an accepted scientific understanding that the burning of fossil fuels such as coal and petroleum coupled with the destruction of forests has lead to the ensuing 36 percent increase in carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere. This carbon dioxide buildup is triggering a profound change in the global climate system.
