Human activities are adding greenhouse gases, particularly carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide, to the atmosphere, which are enhancing the natural greenhouse effect. While the natural greenhouse effect is keeping average temperature on earth at about +15°C, this enhanced greenhouse effect is leading to a dangerous degree of global warming. A fast rise in average temperature of Earth could result in rising sea levels, melted glaciers, floods, droughts and other hazardous scenarios. This is why mitigation and adaptation to anthropogenic climate change is so important.

Related terms:
climate change mitigationMitigation refers to actions that reduce our contribution to the causes of climate change. This means reducing emissions of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide (CO2), through energy efficiency and using alternative forms of transport and energy.(UKCIP), climatology, greenhouse effectThe greenhouse effect is the natural process where the atmosphere traps part of the sun's energy, a necessary process to keep the planet warm enough for life as we know it. Today scientists believe an anthropogenic increase in greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide is increasing the effect ..., climate change controversy, climate modelsA mathematical presentation of climate based on physical, chemical, and biological properties.

Broader terms:
climate changeClimate change is a lasting change in weather patterns over long periods of time. It can be a natural phenomena and and has occurred on Earth even before people inhabited it. Quite different is a current situation that is also referred to as climate change, anthropogenic climate change, or ...

Narrower terms:
anthropogenic climate change causesMost climate scientists agree the main cause of the current global warming trend is human expansion of the 'greenhouse effect' - warming that results when the atmosphere traps heat radiating from Earth toward space. Certain gases in the atmosphere block heat from escaping. Long-lived gases, ..., climate change consensus, primary climate changesThe primary and secondary changes lead to direct impacts. These impacts, in turn, lead to indirect impacts from changes in human systems as people respond to changes as individuals, and these changes then affect markets, prices, values, and other variables., global dimming, secondary climate changesThe primary and secondary changes lead to direct impacts. These impacts, in turn, lead to indirect impacts from changes in human systems as people respond to changes as individuals, and these changes then affect markets, prices, values, and other variables.
