The article provides information related to the climate in Great Britain. Dave Reay, author of "Climate Change Begins at Home," announced that transportation has caused 25% of the nation's greenhouse emission, home 25% and the rest from the workplaces. Great Britain has not met its target of reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 30% in 2010. Base from the British Antarctic Survey, the world's climate would become hotter if the concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere go above 450-600 parts per million.
