Global Warming, Green House Gases, The Green House Gases in the Air

Gases trap in energy and keep earth’s temperature steady. Greenhouse effects add carbon dioxide to earth’s atmosphere, which makes earth’s surface warmer.  The greenhouse effect causes global warming, but without it, living things The greenhouse gases (GHG) such as water vapor, carbon dioxide, and other on earth would also be in danger. The heat of global warming melting ice caps and glaciers can cause the sea level to increase.
Greenhouse gases trap heat when sunlight passes through the atmosphere and warms the earth.  Heat rising from the ground warms the air and the GHGs stop the heat from escaping, so the earth becomes warm.
Greenhouse gases are made of water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, ozone, and chlorofluorocarbons.  “They are all natural gases, but extra greenhouses gases can be made by humans from pollution”.  Extra greenhouse gases are made when more carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, ozone, and chlorofluorocarbons are put into the air more than it should be. This happens by burning fossil fuels, deforestation, and animal waste that leave behind methane.  “The greenhouse earth is surrounded by a shield of atmospheric gases, rather than a glass or a plastic cover”.
The Gases in The Atmosphere
Human actions played a big role in global warming some examples are trap in heat.. Carbons pollutions, sulfur oxide, nitrogen oxide, and poisonous substances are all air pollutions. An example is car burning gas fuels, volcano gases, or deforestation. The greenhouse gases are made up of many gases combine and water vaporization, but carbon dioxide is the main one. The greenhouse effects are not the plant houses that you use during winter, but it does react in a similar way. When heat from the sun travels down to earth, the greenhouse gases would trap in the heat and cause the earth to get warmer and the ozone layer to be broken down.
Besides carbon dioxide, methane, chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and nitrous oxide are contributing to the greenhouse effect. Agriculture is one of the major causes of methane though coal-mining actions, and oil explorations. Plants that burned down during land clearance also release methane into the air. Farming activity has to increase if the world’s population increases, and due to this, the level of methane will grow. As the global heat increases, large amounts of methane in the frozen northern Tundra and seabed will be released.

Chlorofluorocarbons are found in many things such as refrigerators, air conditioners, and aerosols, which are a very effective in the greenhouse gases. The CFCs molecule is 10,000 times stronger than C02 in trapping heat in the air and has lived in the atmosphere for 110 years.
