    Global warming means that the average temperature of the Earth is increasing over time. Climate scientists have linked global warming and other types of climate change to increased carbon dioxide and other "greenhouse gases", that have come about through human activity.

    Yes, but it's important to note that it's the AVERAGE temperature that's increasing, which has the effect of severe weather--both hot and cold temperatures--and storms. It's a terrible "marketing" mistake that it's called global warming, because the ignorant experience a cold day and use it as "proof" against global warming, when actually its pretty solid evidence.
