The Greenhouse Effect
A project created by Will Jones
Greenhouse Gases in the Atmosphere
Carbon Dioxide comes from our lungs, and is recycled in the Carbon Cycle. We humans breathe in oxygen and release carbon dioxide.
Methane is mainly produced by humans. Burning fuel and raising livestock are also ways that methane is formed.
Nitrus Oxide comes from both natural and human-related sources. It is produced naturally in soil and water.
Positives and Negatives of Greenhouse Gases
Greenhouse Gases help keep our planet warm.
Makes the seasons equal so winter won't be all year.
Contributes to the cause of global warming.
Causes harsh weather conditions (HEAT).
Carbon Dioxide (Decrease): The Earth becomes too cold to live on.
Ozone (Increase): Too little radiation causes us to become fragile.
Ozone (Decrease): Too much radiation will cause the earth to become uninhabitable.
Oxygen (Increase): More forest fires and evolution of organisms would occur fairly quickly.
Oxygen (Decrease): Most life would not be able to survive, and would probably die.
