Environment: Greenhouse Gas and Kyoto Protocol

effects of unavoidable increase in high temperature. Kyoto Protocol was developed with the collaboration of many countries. The countries involved in this agreed to reduce emission of greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming. Industrialized countries support Kyoto Protocol which is release more greenhouse gas and responsible for those more than 25 percent of generated by humans worldwide.  The Kyoto protocol enables the global community to reduce the emission of green house gases. This is...

also wonder why disastrous weather events like super-storm Sandy continue to increase in their frequency and severity? Many modern scientists attribute these dangerous environmental trends of global warming to the ‘greenhouse effect’. The ‘greenhouse effect’ results from greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide rising into the atmosphere, trapping infrared radiation from the sun, and emitting ultraviolet radiation that can puncture the earth’s stratospheric ozone layer. A healthy ozone layer should...

The Greenhouse Effect

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 (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), and methane (CH4)--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 H20. The gases have this effect because as incoming solar radiation strikes...

Greenhouse Effect

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...

Chemistry at Work: Co2 and the Greenhouse Effect

Work: CO2 and the Greenhouse Effect Greenhouse gases and global warming have received increasing attention in recent years. The identification of the ozone hole in 1985 combined with unusual fluctuations in global temperatures have combined to capture the eye of the global media. Recent scientific study and analysis of the greenhouse gases has added to this interest. Greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have an important influence on the climate of our planet. Quite simply, greenhouse gases hinder the...

percent. What's more, the total number of lakes in all nine regions declined by 5 to 54 percent, and mean annual temperatures increased significantly (Flores 2007). The increase in the earth's temperature is a direct result of greenhouse gases. Some of the most damaging greenhouse gases are fossil fuels. These gases release carbon dioxide which traps the heat that is normally released into the atmosphere. A study by researchers at the Physics Institute at the University of Bern and the European Project...

The Greenhouse Effect and Global Warming

corrected, or at least prevented from here on out, there are going to be some severe complications in the near future. Greenhouse holes in the ozone layer and the decay of the atmosphere are just a few of the problems that need to be, at the very least, understood by the general community. Global Warming is caused by the Greenhouse effect. There are 4 steps in the Greenhouse effect process. First, sunlight radiates from the sun, through space, to Earth’s atmosphere. Second, sunlight enters the...

The greenhouse effect

Case 1.2 Green Economics Taking account of environmental costs People have become concerned by a number of environmental problems in recent years. These include: The greenhouse effect. This is caused by carbon dioxide and other gases emitted again by power stations, various industries and cars. The fear is that these gases will cause a heating of the Earth's atmosphere. This will lead to climatic changes which will affect food production. It will also lead to a raising of sea levels and...
