Understanding the causes of and responses to global warming requires interdisciplinary cooperation between social and natural scientists. The theory behind global warming has been understood by climatologists since at least the s, but only in the new millennium, with an apparent tipping point in , has the mounting empirical evidence convinced most doubters, politicians, and the general public as well as growing sections of business that global warming caused by human action is occurring. Emissions of CO 2 have been rising at a speed unprecedented in human history, due to accelerating fossil fuel burning that began in the Industrial Revolution. Debate continues about which manifestations are due to long-term climate change and which to normal climate variability. Global warming involves an unprecedented speeding up of the rate of change in natural processes, which now converges with the previously much faster rate of change in human societies, leading to a crisis of adaptation.
Last reviewed: October Earth's past climates, or paleoclimates, have alternated between ice ages and periods warmer than today over relatively long time scales millions to tens of millions of years because of natural causes, such as the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, the positions of the continents, ocean circulation, solar output, and the Earth's orbit. However, since the mid-twentieth century, global climate change has been driven primarily by human-caused greenhouse-gas emissions Fig. See also: Glacial history ; Ocean circulation ; Paleoclimatology ; Paleogeography ; Plate tectonics ; Precession of equinoxes ; Solar constant. There is a scientific consensus that human factors forcings are the primary cause of Earth's changing climate and that global climate change cannot be explained by natural forcings alone Fig.
The effects of climate change span the physical environment , ecosystems and human societies. It also includes the economic and social changes which stem from living in a warmer world. Human-caused climate change is one of the threats to sustainability. Many physical impacts of climate change are already visible, including extreme weather events, glacier retreat ,  changes in the timing of seasonal events e. Climate change has already impacted ecosystems and humans. This, in combination with extreme weather events, leads to negative effects on human health. Climate change has also contributed to desertification and land degradation in many regions of the world.

In the following viewpoint, Canadell argues that recent efforts to improve energy efficiency and increase the use of clean energy have contributed to a stalling in fossil fuel emissions. However, Canadell contends that governments will need to increase their efforts to meet the climate goals established in the Paris Agreement. He compares the successes and shortcomings of China, the United States, India, Australia, and the European Union in reducing emissions. He examines the practice of storing carbon dioxide underground through carbon capture and storage CCS and concludes that thousands of CCS facilities will be necessary to meet climate goals. In the following viewpoint, Thomas argues that politicians use the issue of climate change as an excuse for the government to interfere in the lives of private citizens. Noting that some climate predictions have overestimated the impact of global warming, the author disputes the widely held belief that global temperatures are rising as a result of human activity. He contends that politicians and the mainstream media encourage public outrage and generate panic over climate change by promoting the opinions and predictions of alarmists while ignoring the views of skeptics.
Fracking is a controversial form of drilling that uses high-pressure liquid to create cracks in underground shale to extract natural gas and petroleum. Carbon emissions from fossils fuels like these have been linked to global warming and climate change. Climate is sometimes mistaken for weather. But climate is different from weather because it is measured over a long period of time, whereas weather can change from day to day, or from year to year. The climate of an area includes seasonal temperature and rainfall averages, and wind patterns.

The First Edition of the Encyclopedia of Global Warming and Climate Change provided a multi-authored, academic yet non-technical resource for students and teachers to understand the importance of global warming, to appreciate the effects of human activity and greenhouse gases around the world, and to learn the history of climate change and the research enterprise examining it. This edition was well received, with notable reviews. Since its publication, the debate over the advent of global warming at least partially brought on by human enterprise has continued to ebb and flow, depending literally on the weather, politics, and media coverage of climate summits and debates.
Global warming , the phenomenon of increasing average air temperatures near the surface of Earth over the past one to two centuries. Increases in greenhouse gases —i. Continued global warming is expected to impact everything from energy use to water availability to crop productivity throughout the world. Poor countries and communities with limited abilities to adapt to these changes are expected to suffer disproportionately. Global warming is already being associated with increases in the incidence of severe and extreme weather, heavy flooding , and wildfires —phenomena that threaten homes, dams, transportation networks, and other facets of human infrastructure.
- Парень хмыкнул. - Меган все пыталась его кому-нибудь сплавить. - Она хотела его продать. - Не волнуйся, приятель, ей это не удалось. У тебя скверный вкус на ювелирные побрякушки. - Ты уверен, что его никто не купил.
Сначала это напомнило сокращение мышцы чуть повыше бедра, затем появилось ощущение чего-то влажного и липкого. Увидев кровь, Беккер понял, что ранен. Боли он не чувствовал и продолжал мчаться вперед по лабиринтам улочек Санта-Круса. Халохот настойчиво преследовал свою жертву.
Она постучала пальцем по кипе документов: - Вот твоя жизнь, Чед Бринкерхофф. - Но, посмотрев на него, смягчилась. - Могу я чем-нибудь тебе помочь, прежде чем уйду. Он посмотрел на нее умоляюще и покрутил затекшей шеей. - У меня затекли плечи. Мидж не поддалась.

Джабба. Скорее вылезай. Он неохотно выполз из-под компьютера. - Побойся Бога, Мидж. Я же сказал тебе… - Но это была не Мидж. Джабба удивленно заморгал. - Соши.
Совершенно верно. Простые числа играют важнейшую роль в японской культуре. Стихосложение хайку основано на простых числах. Три строки по пять, семь и снова пять слогов. Во всех храмах Киото… - Довольно! - сказал Джабба. - Если ключ - простое число, то что с .
Давай ключ. - Мидж… Она прекратила печатать и повернулась к. - Чед, список будет распечатан в течение тридцати секунд.
Фонтейн давно всем доказал, что близко к сердцу принимает интересы сотрудников. Если, помогая ему, нужно закрыть на что-то глаза, то так тому и. Увы, Мидж платили за то, чтобы она задавала вопросы, и Бринкерхофф опасался, что именно с этой целью она отправится прямо в шифровалку.
