ABSTRACT
The article reports about the causes of global warming and its effects on the economy of countries worldwide. It is stated that the theory of global warming due to carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions rests on two fundamental elements such as that CO2 absorbs infrared radiations and the other is that interactive computer models of climate have been constructed to show increased warming with increased CO2. A few important facts about the oil supply are listed.
