In 2021 it was reported that the earth is trapping twice as much heat as in previous years. While the melting of the ice around the earth has been a natural cycle, we are now experiencing what some call a “warming cycle“. What exactly is global warming? How does this affect us? The following paragraphs will attempt to answer these questions and many more.

Global Warming is caused by greenhouse gasses being trapped within the earth’s atmosphere. When these gasses are released into the atmosphere, they act like a snowstorm. The result is that they warm the upper layers of the atmosphere, which in turn cause the surface air to become humid and wet. The result of all this is a sudden increase in atmospheric temperature. At the same time, the earth is trapping twice as much heat as in previous years. This means that temperatures are rising.
