Climate change is caused by the increased levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. These greenhouse gases include carbon dioxide (CO2), methane, and nitrous oxide, and they act like a heat-trapping blanket around the earth. The more greenhouse gases, the thicker the blanket, the warmer the Earth gets.
