What actually is global warming? It describes the increasing average temperature of the planet’s oceans and atmosphere, which not only damages the environment but contributes to the deterioration of human health. The effects of global warming can lead to severe respiratory diseases such as lung cancer and asthma, vascular problems such as thrombosis and kidney failure, and it has been linked to an increased risk of heart attacks.
