    The Greenhouse Effect and Global Warming Recently, global warming has moved to a serious scientific issue. Because sunlight is constantly falling on the earth, the law of physics say that the planet has to radiate the same amount of energy back into space. Infrared radiation is sent out by the earth through the atmosphere, where molecules (carbon dioxide) hold outgoing radiation for a while, warming the surface.1 The molecules are kind of like glass in a greenhouse which is why this process...

The warming periods called glacial periods cause the Earth to retrogress back to a cold ice age climate after a couple of years. This leads to the growing debate of today, Is global warming caused by humans? Or caused naturally?
