This is a natural process, but in recent , human activities have an increase in the of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere which is now trapping too much heat.

One of the main greenhouse gases is carbon dioxide, and extra quantities of this into the atmosphere burning fossil fuels as a source of energy in power stations, factories and homes. Exhaust gases from cars and lorries further emissions of carbon dioxide.
