The problem is that over the last century, we humans have been releasing more and more carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases into the atmosphere when we burn fuels and cut down forests. These additional gases have upset the natural balance of our atmosphere, trapping more heat than is healthy for the Earth . How have we hurt ourselves :: How have we hurt ourselves : Air : Polluted by industrial gas, aircraft fuel etc. Water : Polluted by industrial waste, plastics etc. Land : Polluted by non bio degradable products and chemicals.
