"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

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.
