Although the Earth?s climate evolves naturally over time, the major cause of climate change that is harmful and lead to unfavorable weather, water patterns, growth patterns are due to the release of manmade chemicals. While these chemicals are necessary to produce certain items, operate essential refrigeration equipment, or make our daily lives easier, they are a danger to the environment and the air we breathe.

Many other systems that we rely upon on a day-to-day basis contain refrigerant gas, which is a major cause of climate change. The gas is used to run the commercial refrigeration units, HVAC systems and a conditioning systems, and is composed of chlorofluorocarbons and hydrochlorofluorocarbons, known to contribute to global warming. Its usage is scheduled to be phased out by 2015.

Refrigerant gas used to run commercial refrigeration units, as well as air-conditioning systems and heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems, is a chief cause of climate change because it is made up of hydrochlorofluorocarbons and chlorofluorocarbons. These gases contribute to global warming and also deteriorate the ozone layer. Because of the great harm refrigerant gas can cause to the Earth, the United States and many international countries are phasing out its usage, with complete removal by 2015.

Fossil fuels are a major cause of climate change because they lead to an increase in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Natural gas, oil and coal used to operate vehicles and generate electricity emit high levels of carbon dioxide, identified as a chief contributor to global warming. Fossil fuels also produce carbon monoxide, methane emissions, nitrous oxide and nitrogen oxides, all substances that impact air quality and global warming.

Scientists have found that methane is a significant cause of climate change. This greenhouse gas is discharged by cows, pigs, horses, sheep and other domesticated animals. Methane gas is also discharged from garbage in landfills, fertilizers, oil drilling and coal mining. In addition, when a gas leak occurs, a high volume of the dangerous chemical is discharged at one time.

Some daily household items and a number of common processes are suspected as being a cause of climate change. The use of aerosols, and animal agriculture, cement manufacturing, land usage and deforestation processes are all under study.

Common pollutants in our society include carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and black carbon and these pollutants are a cause of climate change. As they grow, the Earth's protective layer becomes damaged and this results in global warming. Scientists paint a doomsday scenario, where global warming will destroy the planet if no action is taken.

Greenhouse gases in the air contribute to atmospheric heat, and this amount of heat stored in the atmosphere is a principal cause of climate change. Significant heat changes in the Earth's climate can affect all forms of life, including animal, plant, human and marine -- all will be severely impacted.

Simply put, too much heat stored in the atmosphere is the cause of climate change. The amount of greenhouse gases in the air contributes to atmospheric heat. Overwhelming heat can create significant changes in the Earth?s climate, affecting both land and ocean. As a result, human, animal, plant and marine life will be severely impacted.
