ABSTRACT
The article discusses the significance of energy efficiency and renewable energy in addressing the issues of global warming. The presence of the greenhouse gases makes the temperature of the atmosphere colder compared to the present temperature of 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The suspended particles in the air which are released by fossil-fueled power plants is inclined to lower the temperature by the blocking sunlight. The radiative forcings in watts per square is determined by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, an international collaborative of scientists and government representatives established to study global warming.
