Product description

Gases in the atmosphere, known as greenhouse gases, are causing Earth s temperature to rise. These gases let rays of heat and light through the atmosphere. The greenhouse gases trap some of these rays, which heat the atmosphere. While our planet needs a certain level of greenhouse gases to support life, too much can lead to global warming, the overheating of Earth s atmosphere. By understanding how the greenhouse effect works and identifying what pollutants are adding to the problem, we can help prevent the devastating effects of global warming."
