The combustion of wood, oil and coal results in increased levels of carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide acts as a greenhouse gas because it lets natural light in through but traps out on going long-level radiation. The consequence is that increased levels of carbon dioxide are slowly making the earth warmer causing climate change. Greenhouse gases can cause depletion of the ozone layer which protects humans from cancer of the skin. It also reduces...

GLOBAL WARMING The American Geophysical Union (AGU) stated that human activities, especially the burning of fossil fuels, such as coal and petroleum, have significantly increased atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases (gases such as carbon dioxide that trap solar radiation). The continued build-up of these gases in the atmosphere is expected to cause major disruptions to the global climate system, including rising average surface temperatures, rising sea levels caused b...
