Abstract

This paper discusses the greenhouse gas emissions of the USA which cause the global warming in the atmosphere. In the last of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century, global climate change becomes more sever which is due to greenhouse gas emissions. The Kyoto Protocol is introduced in 1997 but developed countries and some developing countries are not implementing this protocol. In December, COP/CMP7, UN Climate Change Consensus 2011, Durban, South Africa, all the nations of UN do not agree to reduce GHGs according to Kyoto Protocol agreement but Kyoto Protocol is extended up to 2015. Due to global warming the ocean levels are increasing, as a result most of the costal areas will submerge by 2050, and some insects and animals will extinct. The USA is searching for the advanced technologies to develop both vehicles and fuels. Recently the USA, Brazil and some other countries are producing biofuels and are using them in vehicles to reduce stress on gasoline and are trying to develop them. This paper emphasizes on the affects of global warming and different ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
