  • Carbon Dioxide And Other Greenhouse Gases
    907 words
    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...

  • Greenhouse Effect The Earth
    1,079 words
    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...

    Future Of The Greenhouse Effect Eddie Ferguson In my research of the future of the greenhouse effect, I have found out that the outlook of the earth is pretty bad. Every year every country in the world puts out more and more toxins into the air. The major toxins that are put into the air are carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and chlorofluorocarbons. These toxins are put into the air from cars, factories, and the burning of fossil fuels, such as coal, and oil. Some scientists believe that t...
  • Global Warming And The Greenhouse Effect
    1,272 words
    Global warming and the greenhouse effect are issues discussed by scientists all the time. A natural process that keeps earths temperature at a livable rate is called the greenhouse effect. The energy from the sun warms up the earth when the rays from the sun are absorbed by greenhouse gasses. The gasses then become trapped in the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide, water vapor, methane and nitrous oxide are the most common greenhouse gasses. Greenhouse gases cause the radiant heat of the sun to be trapp...
  • Global Warming And Climate Change Global
    2,791 words
    The Effects of Global Warming Global warming during the past century has been so gradual as to be nearly imperceptible. Neither does it adhere to a regular schedule or predictable pattern, which perhaps explains why doubters and nay-sayers still dispute the whole idea. Their ranks are shrinking, however, in the face of a growing body of evidence. Experts now tell us that if we do nothing to reduce the release of heat-trapping gases into the atmosphere, we can expect temperatures to rise during t...

  • Effect Its Greenhouse Effect
    472 words
    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...
  • Greenhouse Effect Our World
    328 words
    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 larger...
  • Greenhouse Effect
    490 words
    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...

  • Greenhouse Effect This Effect
    300 words
    Greenhouse Effect This effect is the result of certain atmospheric gases letting sunlight through to the earth's surface, while not letting energy radiated outward from the earth's surface. This results in a net buildup of solar energy in the Earth's atmosphere, because the flow in is greater than the flow outwards. The chemicals that are most significantly involved in this effect are chloroflurocarbons (CFCs), hydrogenated chloroflurocarbons (Cfcs), nitrous oxide (N 2 O), and tropospheric ozone...
  • Causes The Greenhouse Effect
    472 words
    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 ...
  • Impacts Of Global Warming The Earths Climate
    3,894 words
    Global Warming Is A Serious Issue That Should Have Immediate Attention As Vice President Al Gore has said about the threat of global warming, it is "the most serious problem our civilization faces" (2). It has become quite an issue internationally because of the threat of increasing greenhouse gasses. It is these gasses, when released into the air, accumulate and then trap the heat inside our atmosphere. Our climate is greatly affected by this. Therefore, affecting all of the organisms on earth,...
  • Atmosphere By The Greenhouse Gases

    THE GREENHOUSE EFFECT The greenhouse effect: retention of heat in the Earth's atmosphere due to the presence of greenhouse gases. 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 ...

    Reptiles Enjoyed Warm Arctic (Global Warming) An article written by ABC News writer Kenneth Chang discusses the change in climate of the arctic from ninety million years ago. Seven hundred miles from the North Pole, lies an island called Axel Heiberg, a barren land that scientists have dug up fossil bones of a cold-blooded reptile known as a champsosaur. How does this happen in an arctic, freezing land? How does a reptile that needs the warmth of the sun to survive, live in a frigid climate? Wel...

    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...

    For hundreds of years, climates on earth have gone through great changes. The changes are caused by many activities that have occurred and are presently occurring on earth. Increasing evidence indicates that human impact on the environment is causing local and perhaps worldwide changes in climate. At various times, glaciers have moved down across the continents into regions that are now warm. This effect of global warming is the meltdown of glaciers of Greenland and Antarctica that could raise s...
