The concept of global warming was reviewed; various climatic changes, acid rains and ozone layer were discussed in the present study. Obligation towards the environment and living beings is the environmental ethics. Environmental crisis is in reality, the crisis of ethics. Over exploiting our right and failing in duty towards the environment. It is our duty to save environment for other species and for our future generation.
