    Global Warming is caused by excessive use of cement due to which water not going into the ground and creating Drought,Tornado,Earth quake and Tsunami because the idle thermocouples hidden in earth crust get activated. There are no plate tectonic or sea flooring to create the Tsunami or earthquake. If given a chance in any forum I can explain my theory and may succeed to solve this problem.
