What is green house effect?

The green house effect is an atmospheric phenomenon that occurs when heat from the sun warms up the earth’s surface, then it gets trapped by gases in the atmosphere. These green house gases are primarily water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and ozone. The green house effect has been occurring for centuries and its effects have been studied extensively. One of these studies was published in 1896 by a Swedish scientist named Svante Arrhenius who predicted global warming as a result of green house gas emissions.

Svante Arrhenius’s green house gas emissions theory has been proven to be correct.

Greenhouse gases

Greenhouse gases are also known as GHGs. Greenhouses work by keeping the sun’s energy and warmth inside, and this is done through a process called the Green House Effect. The Green House Effect describes how the earth traps heat in our atmosphere which causes an increase in temperature of anywhere from 50 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit (or about 27-41°C). This process works best when there are high concentrations of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide or methane that can absorb wavelengths of light visible to humans while reflecting other wavelengths back into space.
In order for life on Earth to be possible, it must have liquid water at least some point during its lifetime . Thus, scientists believe that if we ever want habitable planets outside our solar system, they will need to have Green House Gases present.

Anthropogenic greenhouse gases

Anthropogenic greenhouse gases are caused by human activities. Anthropogenic greenhouse gases include methane, nitrous oxide, carbon dioxide and water vapor. These gasses all absorb the infrared radiation emitted from Earth’s surface to help warm it up which is known as the “Green House Effect” because of its similarity to how a green house works in heating an area. Without these anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions we would experience much colder global average temperatures than we see today and life on earth would be very different!

Role in climate change

The green house effect occurs when greenhouse gases in the atmosphere trap heat. The green house effect is a natural process that keeps the Earth from being too cold to inhabit, and without it life as we know it would not exist. However, human activities have increased concentrations of green house gasses dramatically since pre-industrial times which has put our planet’s climate at risk through global warming.

While this gas is vital for life on earth to survive, its overabundance is having an extreme effect on earth’s temperature due to trapping excess amounts of heat inside our atmosphere creating what many scientists refer to as “Global Warming” or “Climate Change”. Greenhouse gases are naturally occurring in small quantities but their levels

Global Warming 

the process where greenhouse gases trap heat within our atmosphere. Global warming occurs because of an increase in carbon dioxide and methane which causes more energy to be trapped on Earth, resulting in a rise of average global temperature over time..

The effect is named after a classic science fiction novel written by American writer Ray Bradbury called “Fahrenheit 451”. The book was later adapted into the 1966 film starring Oskar Werner as Guy Montag and Julie Christie as Linda Montag.
