Abstract

The fact that there has been an increase in global temperatures in the 20th century suggests that anthropogenic activity might have contributed significantly to climate change during this time period. Anthropogenic activity includes generation of effluents from power plants, cement manufacturing, other industrial operations (carbon dioxide, black soot, sulfate aerosols), land clearing and deforestation, and large-scale irrigation).
