Emission of Greenhouse Gases
By:Lori Horning

Greenhouse gases are gases that trap heat in the environment, which raises the temperature of the Earth. There are six types of of Greenhouse Gases that are released by human's everyday.
They include:
Carbon dioxide
Nitrous oxide
Methane
Hydrofluorocarbon
Sulfur Hexafluoride
Perfluorocarbons } industrial gases In some cases the release of gases has increased
almost by 40% because of uncontrollable industrialization
In some cases the release of gases
has increased almost by 40% because of uncontrollable industrialization. Also, there has been a stern rise in human-induced releases due to fossil fuels, which has lead to a major boost in carbon dioxide that has been emitted into teh air. The earth can absorb as much as 6.2 billion metric tons of human-induced production of Carbon dioxide yearly but still an additional 4.1 billion metric tons of production are released into the air annually. If these gases keep increasing there could be
effects such as severe floods, droughts, sea levels
rising which would effect the animals in a bad way. In the last 100 years the temperature has risen from around 1.1 degrees to 1.6 degrees according th studies taken by the Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change. Resources:
