global warming

Global warming is a phenomenon of climate change.

The emission of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane, mainly from the burning of fossil fuels, causes heat to be trapped near the Earth’s surface and warms the planet.

This has led to an increase in heat waves and wildfires, higher sea levels and more intense droughts, storms and extreme weather.

These impacts threaten people who lack food and water, can increase disease, cause economic hardship, and cause migration and conflict.

The World Health Organization named climate change the greatest threat to world health in the 21st century.

He said: “I think that’s a question I asked last year that you may or may not know the answer to.

“It’s about why goalkeepers don’t wear caps anymore? Has the sun changed since the (19)70s?’

Drury replied, “I don’t know the answer…

“First let me tell you that you still see one occasionally, but not as many as you used to, I agree.”

Dixon continued: “All goalkeepers used to wear hats when it was sunny.

“And now we supposedly have global warming and all that.”

“Maybe we’ve had bigger stands since the ’70s,” Drury replied.

Dixon then concluded: “There you are. See I knew you would get a correct answer.

Gunners icon Dixon, who earned 22 caps for the Three Lions, made 616 appearances in all competitions for the north London side during his 14-year tenure.

The full-back has scored 28 goals and won four league titles, three FA Cups, two (unchanged) Charity Shield Trophies and one European Cup Winners’ Cup.

Mikel Arteta’s side were defeated at Old Trafford after goals from Antony and a brace from Marcus Rashford after Bukayo Saka equalised.
