Abstract

In the present scenario many scientists, researchers and environmentalists are expressing their deep concerns about the overall changes. For continuous production of Electricity Fossil and Fuels are being used. The burning of these fuels produces gases like carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxides which lead to global warming. The main cause of global warming can be unsustainable human activities that increase the accumulation of greenhouse gases. The hazard of global warming is continuously causing major damage to the Earth's environment. Most human beings are still unaware of global warming and do not consider it to be a big problem in the future. Living Organisms have to make efforts to maintain health by recognizing and resolving abnormal situations such as the presence of invading microorganisms. Here we outline the effect on living organisms, causes and how we can overcome it.
