The phase global warning refers to the documented historical warming of the Earth’s surface based upon worldwide temperature records that have been maintained by humans since 1880. The term global warming is often used synonymously with the term climate change, but the two term have distinct meanings. Global warming is the combined result of anthropogenic (human-caused) emission of greenhouse gases and changes in solar irradiance while climate change refers to any change in the state of the climate that can be identified by changes in the average and the variability of its properties (e.g. temperature precipitation) and that persists for an extended period, typically decades or longer.
It is time to go greener with natural free things. Here we have discussed some of the best stuffs which can help out our Earth’s to be protected from global warming.
