Greenhouse Gases in the Atmosphere

In the atmosphere, Greenhouse Gases absorb and then redirect heat back towards the Earth.

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 (Increase): The Earth overheats and becomes uninhabitable.

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.

Global Warming

Global Warming is the gradual increase in the overall temperature of the earth's atmosphere generally attributed to the greenhouse effect. Pollution and the greenhouse gases are a great cause of global warming. I believe that global warming is real and that we humans should try to burn less fossil fuels and start to shut down some factories that create pollution and are not needed. We humans could also start building better bikes for transportation (without the need of gas).

Animal Affected by Global Warming

Reindeer/Caribou have been affected by global warming because they live in cold places. Global Warming is causing warmth in their habitat, and their protective coat of fur helps through winter, but doesn't help through summer. And now all of that is changing because its becoming warmer winters and summers.
