ABSTRACT
A part of the book "Earth in Danger: Climate Change," by Helen Orme is presented. It highlights the impact of greenhouse gases on the environment as burned fossil fuels in the last 20 years were from three-fourths of human-made carbon dioxide emissions. The atmosphere of the earth is tackled. The relationship between the heat of the sun and the surface of the Earth is examined.
