Global Warming is caused by the build up of gases in the atmosphere such as carbon dioxide and methane, which form a sort of blanket over the Earth, trapping in heat that would normally escape the atmosphere. Record levels of carbon dioxide are having a far reaching effect over our weather, sea levels and climate. Global warming is also sometimes referred to as the most dangerous happenings ever encountered. We do not know what the full affect of radical climate change will be on our environment, but we do know that even a modest rise of 2° - 3° C could have dramatic effects.
The presentation on Global Warming & Climate Change by Ajit Sonakia, IFS explains this in a simple and common man's language. It is an effort to spread awareness amongst students, administrators, policy makers and common man about the causes and effects of Global Warming on Human life. The relationship between various anthropogenic activities, its impact on climate and adaptation measures initiated by India has been explained using simplified sketches and examples.
