This paper discusses the greenhouse gas emissions which cause the global warming in the atmosphere. In the 20th century global climate change becomes more sever which is due to greenhouse gas emissions. According to International Energy Agency data, the USA and China are approximately tied and leading global emitters of greenhouse gas emissions. Together they emit approximately 40% of global CO2 emissions, and about 35% of total greenhouse gases. The developed and developing industrialized countries together emit 90% of the global CO2 equivalent gases. Due to global warming the ocean levels are increasing, as a result most of the coastal areas will submerge by 2050, and some insects and animals will extinct. Hence immediate steps to be taken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to safe the future generations. The paper emphasizes on the affects of global warming and different ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
