Pakistan is facing worse effects of climate changes despite the fact production of greenhouse gases are relatively low. Dr. Moazzam Ali Khan, environmental scientist Professor said, ” Global contribution of greenhouse gases of Pakistan is 0.3% but still climate changes are awful in Pakistan. ”

He said while explaining the process of global warming and greenhouse effect that carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse accumulates and acts as a shield absorbing infrared radiation and stops their escape into space.
