Abstract- There is an intense debate on the topic of global warming & climate change in recent years in the media as well as in the scientific community. The term ‘global warming’ refers to the warming of the earth's surface (land-water combined) due to human-added carbon dioxide because of worldwide industrial activity. This talk will survey the global warming science and will highlight several uncertainties in the science. The talk will discuss other processes like large-scale atmosphere/ocean circulation changes, urban impact and solar variability, which influence mean temperature over various regions of the earth. The talk will then discuss present and future global warming impact on extreme weather events, sea level rise and other climate events and changes. Finally, the talk will present an alternative approach of a simple adaptation strategy to "combat" future climate change.
