Conference series LLC invites all the participants across the globe to attend the ‘World Global Warming Summit’ during Sep 10-12, 2017 at Brussels, Belgium that includes prompt keynote presentations, oral talks, poster presentations and exhibition. Global Warming-2017 provides a platform for researchers/scientists to share and globalize their research work while the participants from industry can promote their products thus felicitating dissemination of knowledge. The scope of Global Warming -2017 is to bring the advancements in the field of earth sciences, atmospheric sciences, climatology.

Global Warming is the phenomenon of increase of Earth's average surface temperature due to effect of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels or from deforestation, which trap heat that would otherwise escape from Earth. The primary cause is too much carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere—which acts as a blanket, trapping heat and warming the planet. As we burn fossil fuels like coal, oil and natural gas for energy or cut down and burn forests to create pastures and plantations, carbon accumulates and overloads our atmosphere. Certain waste management and agricultural practices aggravate the problem by releasing other potent global warming gases, such as methane and nitrous oxide. Substantial scientific evidence indicates that an increase in the global average temperature of more than 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit (°F) (or 2 degrees Celsius [°C]) above pre-industrial levels poses severe risks to natural systems and to human health and well-being.
