It needs to be understood that burning of fossil fuels like natural gas, coal and petroleum causes the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to increase which in turn increases the green house effect.  There is evidence of the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere increase by almost 50% since the 1800’s.
