Humans burning fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) release carbon dioxide, a powerful greenhouse gas. This is causing global warming. Any warming of the earth will lead to changes in climate. Scientists predict this will mean that storms, floods, droughts and other weather events will happen...
Modern homes are better sealed against the elements, and lack of air circulation from outdoors means that more air pollutants stay inside as they are generated.
