  • Frequently Asked Questions about Global Warming - This site can answer many questions about global warming, including: What is the greenhouse effect, and is it affecting our climate? Are greenhouse gases increasing? Is the climate warming? Are El Niños related to Global Warming? Is the hydrological cycle (evaporation and precipitation) changing? Is the atmospheric/oceanic circulation changing? Is the climate becoming more variable or extreme? How important are these changes in a longer-term context? Is sea level rising? Can the observed changes be explained by natural variability?
