The Main Factors of Climate Change

The Main Factors of Climate Change

This video outlines the main factors of climate change, such as sources of power, deforestation and land use Climate change is caused by greenhouse gases in the Earth’s atmosphere. These are gases that prevent heat from escaping into space. The ‘greenhouse effect’ has increased the global average temperature by about 1°C since pre-industrial times. Forests […]

The combustion of fossil fuels is the principal cause of climate change. Another significant contributor is the destruction of natural carbon sinks, namely forests. This is because global warming is the result of too much carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. These gases prevent heat from escaping from Earth, thereby warming […]

Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage: Effects on Climate Change
