Example sentence(s):
  • Over the last five years, 600 scientists from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change sifted through thousands of studies about global warming published in forums ranging from scientific journals to industry publications and distilled the world’s accumulated knowledge into this conclusion: “Warming of the climate system is unequivocal.” Earth observatory
  • Global warming is already affecting the world we know, endangering polar bears, shortening ski seasons and creating more intense storms. Natural Resources Defense Council
  • Kyoto is meant as a tiny first step by rich nations to slow global warming that many scientists say could spur more heatwaves, droughts, floods, more powerful storms and swamp coastal areas by melting ice sheets in Antarctica and Greenland. Global Warming International Center

Example sentence(s):
  • 人間の活動の拡大により二酸化炭素(CO2)をはじめとする温室効果ガスの濃度が増加し、地表面の温度が上昇すること。 通常、太陽からの日射は大気を素通りして地表面で吸収され、そして、加熱された地表面から赤外線の形で放射された熱が温室効果ガスに吸収されることによって、地球の平均気温は約15℃に保たれている。仮にこの温室効果ガスがないと地球の気温は-18℃になってしまうといわれている。 - EICネット  
  • 地球温暖化問題に関しては,理解も感じ方も個人差が大きい.このように見解が異なっていると,国民的な合意を形成することが困難になってくる.そこで,地球温暖化間題とは何かを(1)温暖化は事実か,(2) 温暖化は人間活動が原因か,(3)温暖化して何が悪いか,という3点を軸に,地球温暖化問題とは何か,我々は何をなすべきかについて考えてみよう. - CCSR  
  • 地球温暖化とは、人間活動の拡大により二酸化炭素、メタン、亜酸化窒素などの温室効果ガスの大気中の濃度が増加し、地表面の温度が上昇することをいう。 - 国立環境研究所
