Most electricity comes from burning fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas), which releases the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide.

So people contribute to global warming in many ways, like using transportation other than bikes and your feet, Air travel, Heating and cooling in your house, hot water, even a clothes dryer can contribute to global warming. Lighting, refrigeration, cooking, and waste also contribute to this major problem so if we all reduce our usage for these things we could get rid of global warming.
