 In the world, on January 28, the World Day of Action against Global Warming is celebrated. This day was designated by the United Nations (UN) to raise awareness and sensitise our planet's inhabitants about climate change and the environmental impacts it causes.

The emission of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane causes what is called "global warming", a phenomenon that is causing the climate to vary rapidly, and abnormally. There is a direct relationship between global warming and the increase in greenhouse gas emissions caused mainly by man.

The impacts are already being felt with the increase in the average temperature of the Earth's surface, causing deglaciation, an increase in respiratory and cardiovascular diseases, death of flora and fauna, etc.

The 4th ESO Scientific Culture group students explain what global warming is and propose a series of ideas to stop it. We tell you all this in a podcast on our radio Onda Alegre (audio in Spanish).
