In lands I never saw -- they say
Immortal Alps look down --
Whose bonnets touch the firmament --
Whose sandals touch the town --

Meek at whose everlasting feet
A myriad daisy play --
Which, Sir, are you and which am I
Upon an August day?

Emily Dickinson

The greenhouse

javierjavier Posts: 287 Inactive
The natural greenhouse effect makes life possible. However, humans, have intensified the natural phenomenon, causing global warming.

The phenomenon is called greenhouse effect by which certain gases, which are components of the planetary atmosphere, retain part of the energy that the soil emits by having been heated by solar radiation. .


Currently CO2 in the atmosphere is growing unnaturally because of humans, who are releasing carbon. Therefore it is necessary to differentiate between the natural greenhouse effect caused by human (or anthropogenic) activities.

    Have you seen the movie 'An Inconvenient Truth' @javier? It is very interesting and discusses the greenhouse effect and climate change.

    There is also an excellent film with Leonardo di Caprio on the same subject, that came out a lot more recently. Both are excellent.
