Abstract: This research study aims at underlying the various global environmental issues and the factors that lead to those issues on the planet. The global environment is affected by the various activities and conditions of different countries of the world like increasing industrial practices, population, etc. and these activities adversely affects the natural resources of the global environment like land, fossil fuels, etc. Two major causes were reported against the environment and they were global warming and energy crisis. The global issues related to the environment occurred due to the excessive emission of the green house gases. The green house gases are the harmful gases that results in the increasing surface temperature of the earth and thus resulting in the global warming. The carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide are some of the green house gases out of which the methane is the most powerful whereas the carbon dioxide s maximum emitted by the human activities.
