What Causes Climate Change

Climate Change is Caused by the release of Carbon Dioxide and Methane. These gasses are called Greenhouse Gasses. A Greenhouse Gas is a gas that goes into the atmosphere and traps heat that comes from the sun. This causes the temperature to steadily rise around the world.

What Problems Are Causes By Climate Change
