Global warming causes climate change
Global warming and climate change
Global warming is talk of town. Environmentalists had been talking of global warming and climate change since many years but most of the people were dumb to it. Global warming was not effecting most of us directly till recent past. We have ignored the warning for many times and since many years. However, we, the common people have started feeling the heat of global warming only since few years. Climate change and global warming are related to each other. In fact, these are two sides of the same coin.
Global warming is seriously affecting the global environment. It is a threat to our survival.It has brought the earth and its habitats at the threshold of total collapse. Situation is alarming now and world leaders have been assembling at Climate change conference, Copenhagen to discuss climate change and global warming issues. Copenhagen conference (COP15, December 07 to 18, 2009)) has been symbolized as Hopenhagen.

What is global warming
Rise in average temperature of the globe is known as global warming. Average temperature of the earth is rising since few years due to various artificial and man made reasons. More on what is global warming:
The earth is maintaining a certain average temperature since thousands of years.The earth receives heat in form of sun rays in the day time and emits heat energy in to the cosmos (Space). The nature itself balances in and out of heat energy. The earth is maintaining certain average temperature and climate change cycle since thousands of years. This is optimal temperature required for human being to live in the earth. It cause climate change when this temperature rises. Hence, climate change is related to global warming.

Causes of global warming
Green house gases emissions, green house effect, carbon emissions etc are the main causes of global warming. Burning of fossil fuels emits green house gases like carbon dioxide. This creates imbalance in the ratio of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Green house gases work as a cover over the earth and resist emission of heat energy from the earth surface.
In turn it increases global temperature and causes global warming. Burning of fossil fuel is the main cause of global warming. There are some other reasons too.

Effects of global warming
Main effect of global warming is climate change. There are other effects of global warming too. Global warming causes melting of glaciers. this reduces quantity of ice in north and south poles of the earth damaging global atmosphere seriously. Melting of glaciers causes rise in the sea level. Oceans ans seas receive more water and their level increase. Coastal cities are in danger because of rising in sea levels.
Mountain ranges like the Himalayas have large number of glaciers like Gangotri and Yamunotri. Global warming accelerates their melting speed. Rivers like Ganga and Yamuna start receiving more water and cause flood in its path. Higher ratio of melting glaciers also endanger the glacier itself. Some of the glaciers in the Himalayan range is either extinguished or at the threshold of extinguishing. This will end up in drying those rivers.
Global warming seriously effects the climate. Rise in temperature changes climate. Climate change effects adversely on the species living in the earth. Human kind suffers from various diseases due to global warming and climate change. Large numbers of the animals and plants species are in danger. we know that hundreds of species are declared as endangered species.
Climate change also effect the geography and topography of a region. it converts green area in to deserts. It also effects agricultural production adversely and causes drought and famine. Ethiopia and Somalia are the best examples of effects of global warming.
