Greenhouse Effect and Global Warming
In this Unit we will cover:
What is the Greenhouse Effect?
it is the trapping of the sun's warmth in a planet's lower atmosphere due to the greater transparency of the atmosphere to visible radiation from the sun than to infrared radiation emitted from the planet's surface.
What is Global Warming?
a gradual increase in the overall temperature of the earth's atmosphere generally attributed to the greenhouse effect caused by increased levels of carbon dioxide, chlorofluorocarbons, and other pollutants.
Causes of GE and GW
These are effects of:
-Drastic increase in the emission of CO2 (carbon dioxide)
-Coal burned in power stations contains carbon which combines with oxygen in the atmosphere to form carbon dioxide
Greenhouse Effect and Global Warming kills us by heat stroke, drowning, suffocation, and spreading diseases. In short GE and GW kills us all!!!
- Minimize the use of Plastic
- Garbage Segregation
