If the sun increased the energy that it outputs by a mere 10 percent, the global temperatures would increase dramatically. This is because the energy output by the sun right now makes the Earth's temperature the optimum temperature for sustaining life.

What is called global warming?

Global warming is the slow, steady increase in global temperatures. It is caused by increased levels in carbon dioxide and other pollutants caused by things like factories, and transportation.

What are the specific effects of climate change?

Increased global temperatures, increased water levels due to melting of polar ice caps. Possibly more volatile weather.

How is global warming increased?

Global warming is increased by adding further greenhouse gases to the atmosphere, particularly carbon dioxide and methane. Average global temperatures rose by around 0.75 degrees during the twentieth century. The Kyoto Protocol set a target of limiting further rises to no more than 2 degrees Celsius, but the International Energy Agency now says that this target is no longer achievable.

What gas is responsible for trapping the sun's energy and causing an increase in global temperatures?
