ABSTRACT
A conference paper about the impact of species egalitarianism on the environment of the earth is presented. It states that species egalitarian society is important because human beings are now shaping the environment, and unlike other species, they are no longer being shaped by their environment. It is stated that human activities are the main cause of the climate change; and the atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide are increasing.

    CFC-113a (CF3CCl3), CFC-112 (CFCl2CFCl2) and HCFC-133a (CF3CH2Cl) are three newly detected molecules in the atmosphere that are almost certainly emitted as a result of human activity. It is important to characterise the possible contribution of these gases to radiative forcing of climate change...
