Abstract
Presently, Global Warming is burning issue in all over the world and emissions of greenhouse gases and anthropogenic activities are considered as the main sources of Global warming. Fossil fuel burning and emission of Co2 and CH4 gas aggravate the problem by increment of Global temperature at about 10 C which results catastrophic effect to our climate. Methane (CH4) is considered 20 times more effective than Co2 in entrapping heat for its molecular structure. Ocean temperature rise also affect ecological balance and extinction of various species due to acidification.
