ghg greenhouse gas is like covering yourself with a dirty blanket on a hot humid evening, when all you really want is a cool breeze. Global warming is the result of the greenhouse effect which is the way in which heat is trapped close to the Earth's surface by ghg greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
the world is getting hotter and hotter by the year.
what is greenhouse gas?
ghg: CO2 CH4 N2O
we live in a greenhouse. The Earth's atmosphere is currently filled with a combination of noxious gases; CO2 carbon dioxide, CH4 methane, and N2O nitrous oxide and water vapor. Global warming is the result of the greenhouse effect which is the way in which heat is trapped close to the Earth's surface by ghg greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Global levels of carbon dioxide passed 400ppm, and we are leaking dangerously high levels of methane into the atmosphere creating a greenhouse effect.
the goal of the Paris Climate Agreement is to limit global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius (1.5° C) by reducing greenhouse gas. This is within reach if we treat this crisis as a crisis. Words that sound great, and action is required now. We have exceeded all levels of global greenhouse gas emissions.
China's greenhouse gas emissions exceeded world: China 27%, US 11%, India 6.6%, EU 6.4%
by burning coal to make electricity for the cities we are producing large amounts of carbon emissions making the air too toxic to breathe.
ghg is heating the Earth which is producing a hyper climate which is causing wildfires and floods, drought and sea level rise, hurricanes and heat waves.
numerous studies in recent years have linked bigger U.S. wildfires to global warming from the burning of coal, oil and gas, especially because climate change has made California much drier. A drier California means plants are more flammable.
greenhouse gas is produced from fossils fuels; the extraction, processing, and industrial carbon emissions from oil, fossil gas and coal.
