Climate change is the long-term alteration of temperature and weather patterns. These alterations might be brought on by organic processes, like variations in the solar cycle. However, since the 1800s, human activity has been the main driver. Particularly the burning of fossil fuels like coal, oil, and gas.
The burning of fossil fuels releases greenhouse gas emissions that act as a blanket over the planet, absorbing solar heat and raising temperatures.
Examples of greenhouse gas emissions that are causing climate change include carbon dioxide and methane. For instance, they are created while burning coal or gasoline to heat a building. Additionally, the removal of forests and other land can emit carbon dioxide. Waste dumps are the main source of methane emissions. Energy, industry, transportation, buildings, agriculture, and land use are a few of the main emitters.
In numerous UN reports, thousands of scientists and government reviewers agreed that limiting the rise in global temperature to 1.5°C would help humanity escape the worst effects of climate change and retain a habitable climate. However, current national climate plans predict that by the end of the century, the average global temperature will be around 3.2°C.
Emissions that contribute to climate change are produced all throughout the world, although some countries produce noticeably more than others. The 100 countries with the lowest emissions contribute 3% of world emissions. The ten countries with the largest emissions account for 68% of the contribution. Everyone must take action to stop climate change, but those who cause it most and those countries have a greater responsibility
