I am searching article since last 10 days but could not find any articles where the inter-relation between the climate change, air pollutants and greenhouse gases is clearly explained.Can you help to find those articles?

    Sorry, this is very broad. Can you edit your question and add what effects you want to know about specifically? There is probably a question you want answered, so you might as well ask that question. – Jan Doggen Jul 18 at 20:21
  • What's unclear about this article for example: nationalgeographic.com/environment/global-warming/pollution ? – THelper Jul 24 at 9:24
  • @THelper sir I want to find the interdependencies among climate change, air pollution and global warming, i.e, does climate change affect air pollution and global warming. Similarly, does global warming affect climate change and air pollution. The same case is for air pollution. – atiq marwat Jul 25 at 16:04

This is an 'elephant in the room' or a 'Chicken or egg' question. And I personally don't thing the scientists have been able to answer it. I looked it up as well and it made very little sense. To my mind global warming is definitely man made but not for the reasons the scientists give. There is an overwhelming reason which puts all considerations of greenhouse gasses in the shade (literally, because they cause shade, and cool the Earth) This is the astronomical amount of heat mankind produces every moment. We all know that cities and towns have huge heat plumes rising from them, but this is only a part of the picture. We cause extreme heating in lots of other ways, ex by reducing the Earth's albedo, and by adding the heat of rotting matter which is rarely found in any quantity in nature. Plus the Earth has never before had to cope with such an enormous warm blooded biomass as the human.

    Are you suggesting that global warming is caused by the heat produced by people? From our metabolism and heating our homes? – THelper Jul 31 at 17:30

    Radiative forcing is 1.5 watts / square meter. World primary energy use is 150 000 TWh / year or 17 TW. The energy use is only about 0.03 watts / square meter, if I calculated correctly. So, 2% of global warming is caused by energy use directly, 98% by radiative forcing. Had to downvote, because the information in this answer is utter nonsense. – juhist Aug 1 at 18:00

yes I am saying that the heat our species is releasing into the atmosphere is the cause of global warming. I have not studied physics. I am practically number blind. But I am told that the heat of a human body is roughly equivalent to one bar of an old fashioned (and hotter than any single heater now) electric fire. We are also hotter than almost any other animal because we have no hair and thin skins. You cannot measure the heat that is coming out of every home by the input in wats. The same energy use in different devices gives out a different amount of heat according to its purpose and efficiency. All right try radiative forcing. Compare the heat given out by a crowd of people on a square mile of beach, or even in a town square with an equivalent weight herd of buffalo. I think you'll find that humans are significantly hotter. Moreover when people consider the great herds of ruminants of past eons they fail to note the large area of land required to sustain the life of each animal. Because of our efficiency in obtaining and preparing food humans can live on around half an acre. Therefore we are more numerous and hotter than any warm blooded animal of similar size that has ever existed. Given that the Earth has been found to be more fragile in its temperature balancing mechanism than was thought in the past, this difference is enough to cause global warming. But of course I have left out mention of all the chimneys in every county spewing the heat of a volcano into the atmosphere every moment. I do hope this answers your question.

    This answer on Physics SE explains why human body heat has no net effect on global warming. Also this is not answering the OPs question. – THelper Aug 2 at 15:13
  • Really? heat is heat wherever it comes from. If you look at the history of Earth even small changes in flora and fauna have had significant effects on the climate. I know I should point you to the data but being autistic I have no memory for names, only facts. Try looking up the colour of flowers in the arctic. Also global dimming. Many facts that were known in the past have gone out of circulation. There is a fashion for scientific facts; and they are not always true. Look at all the facts about diet. They seem to change by the minute. I find it is better to use logic than science. – animartco Aug 3 at 19:54
