Green House Effect
By Juan A.V.
The gases that occur naturally are water, CFCs, Ozone, and Sulfur Hexafluoride. these bonds make the radiation bounce back to earth. The way that the radiation bounces of is that the bonds absorb the infrared radiation. Covalent bonds vibrate at a certain speed and when radiation comes into contact with these bonds and vibrate at the same speed thats when the bond absorbs the radiation. When the radiation is absorbed by the bond then the vibration of the radiation increases which heats the air and then the air starts to give off radiation too. these radiation in turn goes back to the earth or goes off to space.
The gases that human make are Carbon Dioxide, Methane, Nitrous oxide. Carbon dioxide is created when we use cars or make a BBQ. Carbon Dioxide comes from the burning of fossil fuels and biomass. Methane is when theirs an anaerobic decay of organic matter. Methane can be created with intensive farming. Nitrous Oxide is created when theirs an increased levels owing to artificial fertilizers and combustion of biomass.
Good and Bad
All living organisms need warmth to survive. In nature naturally that warmth occurs. Without the effects of greenhouse effects then the earth would be a frozen place just like the North Pool. Besides warmth the plants also benefit by getting watered. With the heat that is being produced, that also allows precipitation which makes it rain. The rain can cool the earth so that it doesn't get too hot.
In nature theirs a delicate balance of which heat is distributed in earth. With humans activities we have contributed by adding a dangerous amount of gases which keep more heat trapped in the earth. The thing that happens now is global warming which more warmth is kept locked on to the earth. The results of global warming is the polar ice caps melting. and all of these will continue as long fuel are being burned.
The world has too many problems with pollution, dirty water, and animals dying from extinction. The increases of gases in the atmosphere is dangerous and bad for the earth. Everyone should do something to prevent this danger. The gases are also creating the sea level of water to rise to levels that are dangerous. With water levels high it can cause floods which can end up harming allot of people. Animals environments change cause of the temperature change. Plants die cause its too warm for them to grow naturally. All of these things happen cause of the extra gases that shouldn't be their.
In the past decades the greenhouse effect has gained much attention with the media. Greenhouse effect is very vital for humans, animals, and plants to survive. Even tho greenhouse gases can also be harmful. Humans are the major contributors of the extra gases that have been added in the atmosphere, making more radiation to warm the earth. With each passing day with the population growing the amount of gases are going to increase if something isn't done to prevent too many gases to accumulate.
