The atmosphere is supposed to emit most of the heat, but the atmosphere absorbs all the warmth which causes an increase in the amount of greenhouse gases.
I am sure that many people, including myself not too long ago, do not realize what greenhouse gases are and how we are contributing to global warming.
The average temperature has intensified by 1 degree Fahrenheit since the industrial evolution.
This may not sound so bad because, after all, it is only one degree Fahrenheit right?
These gases cause the greenhouse effect in which vapors insulate the surface of the earth to keep the Earth warm.
Due to human activity, there is a large amount of carbon dioxide gathering in the atmosphere absorbing a lot of the heat coming from the sun.
Before doing some research on my own, I did not know that human activities like driving cars led to a buildup of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
Statistics from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has shown that human made gases such as carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide have been the leading causes in temperature increases since the middle of the twentieth century.
