Question and answer
describe briefy the theory behind man-caused global warming.
The amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has increased due to several factors. Among these are the burning of fossil fuels and the cutting of rainforest which absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen. [ Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas, meaning that high frequency sunlight radiation can pass through to earth but low frequency heat radiation can't pass back out. This results in higher temperatures. That's the theory anyway. ]
