The article presents the author's comments on the invincibility of global warming. Despite plans to combat climate change, most scientists agree that the concentration of greenhouse gases will continue to rise for the next few decades. Scientists estimate that simply to keep greenhouse gases at their current levels, they would need to slash carbon-dioxide emissions by 60 percent. Many environmental advocates fear that talking about coping with global warming will hamper efforts to slow it down.

    CFC-113a (CF3CCl3), CFC-112 (CFCl2CFCl2) and HCFC-133a (CF3CH2Cl) are three newly detected molecules in the atmosphere that are almost certainly emitted as a result of human activity. It is important to characterise the possible contribution of these gases to radiative forcing of climate change...
