In this video I explain why global atmospheric temperature increases due to increased concentrations of carbon dioxide and methane. This is based on the Vostok ice core research published in 1999 and more recent research published by the European Project for Ice Coring in Antarctica (EPICA) and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report published in October 2013.
