What are Some Effects of Global Warming

They've looked at the natural cycles and events that are known to influence climate. But the amount and pattern of warming that's been measured can't be explained by these factors alone. The only way to explain the pattern is to include the effect of greenhouse gases (GHGs) emitted by humans. Other causes could be the earth natural changes but scientist have little information on how this ties in to global warming, and thee melting of the polar icecaps could be another effect of global warming.
