Global climate changes, including episodes of global cooling and warming, have occurred many times throughout earth’s history as a result of natural variations in solar radiation, atmospheric chemistry, oceanic and atmospheric circulations, volcanic eruptions, and other factors. However, it’s primarily caused by human activities that started during the industrial revolution, when human burning of fossil fuels began to increase drastically, releasing large amounts of carbon dioxide (co2). The decision makers should realize that once carbon dioxide, the major anthropogenic greenhouse gas is emitted into the atmosphere, it stays in the atmosphere for more than a century. This viewpoint, which briefly describes the current state of understanding of the earth’s climate system and the influence of human activities.
