Carbon Emission

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a significant heat-trapping (greenhouse) gas that is emitted by human activities like deforestation and fossil fuel combustion, as well as natural processes like respiration and volcanic eruptions. Since the beginning of the industrial revolution, carbon dioxide emissions, mostly from the combustion of fossil fuels, have risen substantially. A small handful of countries account for the majority of global greenhouse gas emissions. Human-caused carbon emissions have increased global temperatures and exacerbated extreme heat occurrences. The urban heat island effect raises local temperatures even more, amplifying the effects of heat waves. Heat waves can harm people's health, degrade air quality, increase cooling energy demands, and disrupt electrical and transportation systems. In recent decades, significant efforts have been made to improve the technology for monitoring and modelling climate change. Global climate change is mostly caused by carbon dioxide emissions. It is commonly acknowledged that, in order to avert the worst effects of climate change, the world must reduce emissions as soon as possible.
