When one talks about climate changes, one will think about global warming. Global warming has affected many people recently.

This is to reduce the amount of fuel wasted as the burning of fuel produces excessive carbon monoxide which will produce a green house effect when left in the atmosphere, thus retaining heat from the sun and causing global warming. Almost everywhere in the world, electricity prices are increasing while the government tries to find a cheaper and efficient method of producing electricity without producing too much carbon monoxide as an attempt to slow down the rate of global warming.
