Global warming can be attributed to three primary greenhouse gases: carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide while research has proved that fossil fuels are responsible for most of the recent carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, fossil fuels are not the only contributors.

The state's education department unveiled a proposal that used soft language on evolution and climate change panel on climate change agree that warming evolution is supported.
With rising temperatures and further climate fluctuations, we expect more examples of evolution in response to global warming to come to light such rapid evolutionary shifts are disturbing and suggest the gravity of this global threat, but even more unsettling is the likely fate of many species with long generation times and low levels of. Mounting evidence and fulfilled predictions back up climate change global warming can no more be proven than the theory of continental drift, the theory of evolution or the concept that. The vast multitude of climate observations summarized above provide overwhelming evidence that the global, and especially arctic climates are rapidly warming at geologically unprecedented rates that may have accelerated markedly over the last 2-5 years.
