Transcript of What are the effects of green house gases

The natural green house effect is when gases in the atmosphere, like carbon dioxide, water vapor, and methane trap infrared radiation. As an energy source the sunlight warms the earths atmosphere, but if there is no energy transfer then heat is produced. In the case of global warming, the infrared radiation is the energy transfer that would cool the earths atmosphere once the sunlight has warmed it but because the infrared radiation is trapped, this energy transfer is reduced which leads to the atmosphere heating up. What is the natural green house effect ? Global warming affects all of us both physically and financially. It affects us physically by creating warmer climates and in some instances cooler climates. Global warming also affects us financially. For example the carbon tax will affect everyone who lives in Australia because industry and businesses will have to pay tax on the amount of energy they will use to produce their goods which will make them more expensive to buy.

Global warming leads to warmer climates and sometimes colder climates. Global warming contributes to the cause of natural disasters, for example the Antarctic melt down is due to warmer climates caused by global warming. Global warming can affect the food chains that animals rely on to survive. If global warming becomes much worse in the future, some species might become exstinct. This can happen for a number of reasons, for example, because of lack of food or water and because of weather changes that would require animals to suddenly adapt to new environments. Effects on health Since the late 20th century, sea levels have risen rapidly by an average of 1.6 mm per year. People from some small islands are being forced to go and live in other countries because their islands will be under water in the near future. For example kiribati will be under sea soon because of sea level rising. Global warming will most likely have a direct impact on the health of humans because of the predicted increase of infectious diseases like malaria due to the warmer weather . Ocean
