Abstract

Climate change is truly a global issue, one that may prove to be humanity's greatest challenge. Extensive burning of fossil fuels since the start of the industrial period, coupled with unprecedented land clearing, has resulted in a steady increase in greenhouse gases (GHG) and a corresponding rise in the average global temperature. Although in some countries the change in temperature may be looked upon as favourable, overall it has had a detrimental effect. With the melting of ice over land and thermal expansion of the oceans adding to sea level rise, urgent action is needed if further damage from global warming is to be slowed or ultimately reversed.
