And global warming, it's in short the greenhouse effect, as carbon dioxide reflects to some degree (similar to glass) the long-waved radiation (infra-red) back to Earth when it should leave the atmosphere (i.e. reflected back to space). Actually a necessary effect to have it warm enough here, but the additional carbon dioxide from fossil fuels (and other greenhouse gases from other sources) leads to an imbalance, heating up the Earth.
