The problems of reducing significantly the release of man‐produced “greenhouse gases” (principally CO⊂2, methane, nitrous oxide and the CFCs) and of predicting their effect on global warming are discussed. Action, to have any significant effect, will have to be international and, while there are ways in which the UK (and similarly developed countries) might limit their emissions over the next decade or two without imposing unacceptable financial, other environmental or social burdens, it is more difficult to visualise solutions over the longer term or applicable to the developing nations.
