What is Global Warming?

So whats the buzz about global warming? Global


warming is the increase in temperature around the
globe. The earth is surrounded by an envelope of
gasses called the atmosphere. Sunlight enters and
leaves the atmosphere as it bounces to and from
earth. However, because of pollution, there are lots
of gases, such as methane, carbon dioxide, and
water vapor in the atmosphere that trap the
sunlight and this keeps it from leaving the
atmosphere. This trapped sunlight within the
atmosphere makes the earth heat up. This is what
creates global warming.
