Global warming and climate change have become an issue of great concern. Now as the world is getting technologically and industrially more advanced, resulting in the setting up of huge factories, the environmental pollution is heading towards alarming levels. It is obvious that more factories mean more pollution and more carbon emissions, which highly aggravate global warming. Keeping this is view, the policy makers from all over the world have decided to unit and chalk out a plan to keep the adverse effects of global warming within safety limits.

Taking a close look at the global response to contain global warming, it also explains the important provisions of Copnhagen Summit, Kyoto Protocol and Post-Kyoto Protocol Negotiations on Green-house Gas Emissions.
