The Greenhouse Effect
What does the word Greenhouse Effect mean?
The Greenhouse Effect is a natural process that heats Earth’s surface. When the Sun’s energy reaches the Earth’s atmosphere, the left heat and gas is reflected back to space and the rest is absorbed and extended by greenhouse gases.
Greenhouse gases include water vapour, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, ozone and some artificial chemicals such as chlorofluorocarbons.

Evidence of The Greenhouse Effect
In public discussions of climate change, the full range and weight of evidence underpinning the current science can be difficult to find
A good example of this is the role of observations of the climate system over the past one hundred years or more.
In the current public debate, the focus has been mostly on changes in global mean temperature.It would be easy to form the opinion that everything we know about climate change is based upon the observed rise in global temperatures and observed increase in carbon dioxide outflow since the industrial revolution.
