Global warming causes, what is it? Almost all scientists involved in research into climate change now accept that the world is warming up, and that it is warming up faster than at any time in the history of the earth.

There are not even a lot of disputes as to why the earth is warming up: a huge amount of research has been carried out into the links between carbon dioxide and high global temperatures, and this along with the historical evidence about temperatures and carbon dioxide levels from the has provided the evidence that carbon dioxide levels and higher global temperatures are linked.

This is now accepted by most scientists as fact, even those who dispute that global warming is being caused by human intervention.

Upper Cretaceous Period has provided the evidence that carbon dioxide levels and higher global temperatures are linked.

Main causes of Global warming

The main causes include:

  • Industry - Nearly all industry relies on burning fossil fuels which release Carbon Dioxide into the atmosphere

  • Land Use - Vast areas of forests are now being cleared to change the land use, this has effects on deforestation.

  • Personal use - The population has increased and so has the use of cars and electrical items.
