Since then, global temperature has begun to become warm. It reached the highest anomalies of +0.6 oC compared to the past 120 years in the most recent year (Shah, 2013). Moreover, this number keeps increasing every year. One of the most vital causes is increase in greenhouse gases due to human activities.
