Global Warming and the Poor by City Tech blogger Thanbir Ahmed Miah

Global warming is the one of the biggest problems currently humans are facing on the earth. We call that problem global warming because the average temperature of the earth is increasing slowly.

When oil production becomes reduced, poor people will suffer more. Their daily life will be become more difficult because they will not find any cheap power sources.
