Abstract

From the observations of increases in global average air and ocean temperature, it is now evident that warming of the climate system is unequivocal. The root cause of global warming is in the increasing concentration of greenhouse gases (GHG), particularly CO2, in the earth’s atmosphere in the period following the industrial revolution. Increases in GHG emissions in the atmosphere are largely because of fossil fuel use, with the energy, transport and industrial sectors accounting for nearly 60% of GHG emissions.
