Greenhouse effect. Conceptual computer artwork of the Earth on fire. This could represent global warming and the greenhouse effect. The flames depict an increase in the Earth's temperature caused by an accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, which include: carbon dioxide, oxides of nitrogen and sulphur, and chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). Global warming could disrupt worldwide weather patterns and cause severe drought in some areas. Other predicted effects include the melting of polar ice caps and an increase in severe weather such as cold winters, hot summers, excess rain and flooding.
