    Greenhouse Effect When one starts a car or burns wood, the last thought on their mind is the consequences to these actions. Unfortunately, the daily dangers to earth are not widely know. Due to the constant change of society, this planet must cope with various problems. One of the most important ecological structures is the ozone layer. The same shield that protects us from the sun's deadly radiation, can also act as a blanket engulfing us in heat. This situation is know as the greenhouse effect...

    Global Warming The greenhouse effect, in environmental science, is a popular term for the effect that certain variable constituents of the Earth's lower atmosphere have on surface temperatures. It has been known since 1896 that Earth has been warmed by a blanket of gasses (This is called the "greenhouse effect." ). The gases -- water vapor (H 2 O), carbon dioxide (CO 2), and methane (CH 4) -- keep ground temperatures at a global average of about 15 degrees C (60 degrees F). Without them the aver...

    Dear Editor, Pollution in our world is leading to increased Global Warming. This Global Warming is a problem that if it doesn't effect us, it will effect all future generations to come. Global Warming is a problem that all of us can solve, and it should be solved through the work of our community. The Global Warming Problem is a big problem, with such an easy solution. Global Warming is caused by the Greenhouse Effect. The Greenhouse effect causes the sun's rays to come in the earth's atmosphere...

    Greenhouse Effect The Greenhouse Effect is a term for the role the atmosphere plays in warming the earth s surface. Infrared rays are trapped by the earth s atmosphere, keeping the earth warm and habitable. Acting as a pane of glass, methane, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxide and CFCs trap the heat in. As infrared radiation travels through the atmosphere, much of it is absorbed by atmospheric gases such as carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and water vapor. These gases then re-emit infrared ra...

    In the past decade the greenhouse effect has gained much attention with the media. Because of the pollution in the 1980's and early 90's attention was brought to the greenhouse effect. In overpopulated areas, the amounts of methane and carbon dioxide was growing. Some scientists believe the greenhouse effect is directly related to the earth's warming, others believe it's a cycle of earth's temperatures. The greenhouse effect is very important to our climate. The light waves from the sun penetrat...

    The Greenhouse Effect Our world is suffering, and it is suffering from something people call the 'Greenhouse' effect. The greenhouse effect is caused by humans over pollution of the earth. If we do not stop this soon the earth will 'die'. We have caused this over many years of over industrialization in this growing world. We think that bigger is better, so we make vehicles bigger and better, and we make pretty much everything else bigger as well. So we make larger factories to build these large...

    The Greenhouse Effect This essay is going to describe what the greenhouse effect is and what it does. It is also going to say what causes the greenhouse effect and the consequences of it. What is meant by the term the greenhouse effect is that the heat from the sun comes into the Earth's atmosphere and cannot get out so become strapped. It gets its name because this is very much like a greenhouse. This effect occurs as the incoming short wave radiation is changed when it hits the Earth's surface...

    The Greenhouse Effect The greenhouse effect, in environmental science, is a popular term for the effect that certain variable constituents of the Earth's lower atmosphere have on surface temperatures. These gases -- water vapor (H 2 O), carbon dioxide (CO 2), and methane (CH 4) -- keep ground temperatures at a global average of about 15 degrees C (60 degrees F). Without them the average would be below the freezing point of H 20. The gases have this effect because as incoming solar radiation stri...

    GREENHOUSE EFFECT The glass windows of a greenhouse let in sunlight. The sunlight warms up objects inside the greenhouse. These objects then give off heat. The glass of the greenhouse, however, does not let out the heat. If the greenhouse lacks ventilation, all the heat stays locked inside and the temperature rises. This greenhouse effect also causes the inside of an automobile to become hot if its windows remain closed on a sunny day. The Earth and its atmosphere are like a giant greenhouse. L...

    The Greenhouse Effect The Earth is kept warm by it's atmosphere, which acts rather like a woolly coat - without it, the average surface temperature would be about -18 degrees Centigrade. Heat from the sun passes through the atmosphere, warming it up, and most of it warms the surface of the planet. As the Earth warms up, it emits heat in the form of infra-red radiation - much like a hot pan emits heat even after it's taken away from the cooker. Some of this heat is trapped by the atmosphere, but ...

The man is one if not the main responsible. With the modern world and its speed in which life is developed everyday, the man may not sometimes think of a long-term harm that is provoking. It has been recognized that human activity is slowly increasing the atmospheric concentration of several gases that contribute to the greenhouse effe...

In this essay, I will tell you how the greenhouse effect works and the importance it has in our atmosphere and everyday life. The greenhouse effect is the rise in temperature that the Earth experiences because certain gases in the atmosphere (water vapor, carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, and methane) trap energy from the sun. Without these certain gases, the heat would ...

    The difference between Ozone Depletion and Global Warming Ozone Depletion The Ozone Layer is a region of the atmosphere from 19 to 48 km (12 to 30 mi) above the Earth s surface. Scientists were concerned when they discovered in the 1970 s that chemicals called chlorofluorocarbons, or CFCs long used as refrigerants and as aerosol spray propellants posed a possible threat to the ozone layer. These chlorine-containing chemicals rise and are broken down by sunlight. The chlorine reacts with and dest...

The greenhouse effect is the absorption of energy radiated from the Earth s surface by carbon dioxide and other gases in the atmosphere, causing the atmosphere to become warmer. The greenhouse effect is what is causing the temperature on the Earth to rise, and creating many problems that will begin to occur in the coming decades. For the last 10, 000 yea...

    The greenhouse effect, what exactly is this? The sun supplies the energy to warm the earth. The atmosphere absorbs outgoing reflected thermal radiation to keep then earth warmer than it would be otherwise. That is the greenhouse effect. Just like a greenhouse, it stays warm because the closed windows prevent the air from inside to cool by circulating. The main concern about the greenhouse effect is the constant warming of the earth. Scientists fear that this warming may be a risk to humans, pla...

    Weather satellites make it possible for meteorologists to closely watch our atmosphere and its weather. One of the more frightening findings over the last several decades is that the ozone layer in our upper atmosphere appears to be getting thinner. Scientists believe that the thinning ozone is due to certain chemicals that our society is producing. Chemicals know as chlorofluorocarbons (or CFC's for short) are used in air conditioners, refrigerators, styrofoam packaging, and insulation. For man...
