Course DescriptionIndustrialization and population growth have increased the energy requirement, so the use of fossil resources such as coal and oil has also increased. Consequently, the increase of carbon emissions causes the climate change rapidly. As a result of this process, which turned into a vicious circle, a greenhouse effect occurred in the atmosphere, and increasing of global temperature was experienced. This change has been defined as "global warming". The effects of climate change along with global warming on ecology are increasing day by day. This module contains information about what global warming is, why it occurs, its effects on ecology, and measures to be taken against these effects.
