Greenhouse Effect

The "Greenhouse Effect" is used to describe how the Sun’s heat energy is trapped near the surface of the Earth. Greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere traps some of the Sun’s heat, to ensure that our planet is warm enough to sustain life! 

Greenhouse gases are gases that are able to absorb as well as reflect the Sun’s heat and radiation. Carbon dioxide, water vapour, methane and nitrous oxide are all greenhouse gases.

Why are greenhouse gases now a risk to global warming?

The answer is quite simple. Over the last 200 years we have been releasing more and more greenhouse gases into our atmosphere. It is a problem now of too much! More greenhouse gases, means more heat being trapped, which means it is now making our Earth hot!

Did you know?

Cow flatulence produces the greenhouse gas methane! Too much cow flatulence could also be linked to global warming.
