Global warming is the term used to describe a gradual increase in the average temperature of the Earth's atmosphere and its oceans, a change that is believed to be permanently changing the Earth’s climate. Some people do not believe that these are caused by human activities. They think it is all political and falsehood intended to cause panic among humans, some call it a hoax. (Dauncy & Patrick, 2001). But climate scientists looking at the data and facts agree the planet is warming. While many view the effects of global warming to be more substantial and more rapidly occurring than others do, the scientific consensus on climatic changes related to global warming is that the average temperature of the Earth has risen between 0.4 and 0.8 °C over the past 100 years. Changes resulting from global warming may include rising sea levels due to the melting of the polar ice caps, as well as an increase in occurrence and severity of storms and other severe weather events. ( Ibrahim & Adnan, 2010)
The solution to stop global warming is to reduce reliance on cars, more efficient buildings, wind power, solar photovoltaic power, renewable hydrogen and others. (Google 2011). All the solution is to decrease the volumes of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases released. The way we deal with people who are skeptical about global warming is that we tell them that it doesn’t matter whether global warming, global cooling, or whatever you want to call it is happening, all that matters is that we should live more in harmony with our environment. The earth and nature are sacred and every little thing in them are just as important as another so why would we take the risk of doing anything that could possibly alter that sacred balance.

Review of Literature
Global warming has been a well recognized environmental issue around the world for the past ten years, even though scientists had identified it as a potential problem years before in 1896. (Jaclyn & Robert, 2003). If human don’t act fast of the global warming, then we will be in for a rude awakening. Variations in day-to-day weather are occurring all the time; they are very much part of our lives. The climate of a region is its average weather over a period which may be a few months, a season or a few years. Variations in climate are also very familiar to us.
The temperature of the earth is getting higher and higher, but there are some people still not to believe that the climate change and global warming are getting serious. The assessment of the impacts of global warming is also made more complex because global warming is not the only human induced environmental problem. (Maslin, 2004). The loss of soil and its impoverishment (through poor agricultural practice), the over-extraction of groundwater and the damage due to acid rain are examples of environmental degradations on local or regional scales which are having a substantial impact now.
