Global warming is the increase of Earth's average surface temperature due to effect of carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels or from deforestation. This traps heat that would otherwise escape from Earth. Interestingly, no study has so far supported the theory that global warming was causing natural calamities in the Himalayan region.
