The article focuses on climate change particularly the effect of greenhouse gasses (GHG). The discussions on greenhouse effect, the way on how to measure GHG emissions, and the potentials of global warming are presented. According to the author, GHG emissions are contributed mostly by the countries with developed economies, specifically the U.S.
