Abstract
The correspondence between atmospheric carbon dioxide ( ) concentrations and globally averaged surface temperatures in the recent past suggest that this coupling may be of great antiquity. Excess greenhouse gases in the atmosphere are a measureable and significant contributor to global warming, and their concentrations have steadily increased over the past century. is the most important greenhouse gas in terms of climate change, has been measured directly since 1958. In this paper we develop the mathematical model of heat transfer in the atmosphere by , Human-Induced emission changing the Earth’s climate. Additionally, we discussed in this paper are sources, sinks of and the amounts of naturally produced and changes in the Earth’s climate, which are necessary for understanding the causes of current temperature and emission trend.
