    The large increase of factories and the use of steam trains caused more greenhouse gases to be emitted into the atmosphere.  This increase accelerated the heating of the earth.

    Because all the mad scientists who lived in those days had each invented - totally coincidentally - a "doomsday-machine" which, when pointed at the sun, turned it all the way up to "11" and made it much hotter. Hope this helped with your idiotic question.

    Mostly the burning of hydro-carbons, like coal.  The new plants needed loads of power, which was provided by burning coal.  This also released a lot of CO2 into the atmosphere, which began the global warming thing that led to climate change.  While this began in the mid-1800's (roughly), the amounts of CO2 produced has steadily increased, as burning fuels has become such a major thing.
