the greenhouse effect
an atmospheric heating phenomenon, caused by short wave solar radiation being readily transmitted inward through the earth's atmosphere but longer wave length radiation less readily transmitted outward.
translated into common-tongue English this can be understood in the form of a real greenhouse.
Dictionary.com describes The Greenhouse Effect as being an atmospheric
phenomenon, caused by short-wave solar radiation being readily transmitted inward through the earth's atmosphere but longer-wave length radiation less readily transmitted outward.
To think of this in its simplest form, think of a
. A glass building in which plants are grown if they need protection from cold weather. What makes a greenhouse work is that the sunlight can shine in through the glass but the heat can not escape out of the building. The heat is trapped inside the greenhouse and keeps the entire building nice and warm.
The same thing is true for the

is the conversion of sunlight into electricity. If humans could harness the power of the sun, we would solve a-lot of the worlds current energy problems. We could also begin to undo the harm done to the worlds atmosphere.
is another alternative for generating electricity. A wind turbine turns kinetic energy from the wind into mechanical energy which can be used to make electricity. The main drawback of this is that the turbines cost millions of dollars. whereas electricity created by burning coal is very cheap energy

There are plenty of organizations pushing the fight against global warming.
The theory behind everything that is supposedly wrong with the world today is
Humans are putting too many greenhouse gasses into the worlds atmospheric shield. We achieve this by:
Shower, don't bathe. It conserves water.
or is it a deceptive scheme designed to crush poor countries.
A film, called the Great Global Warming Swindle is: "a documentary that takes a strongly denialist view of current scientific thinking on climate change. It argues that the consensus on climate change is the product of "a
worldwide industry: created by fanatically anti-industrial environmentalists; supported by scientists peddling scare stories to chase funding; and propped up by complicit politicians and the media""
There are a great many other interesting stories surrounding global warming. Thousands upon thousands of renowned scientists are against the
movement. Sixteen scientists write in the 'Wall Street Journal' that there's no compelling scientific argument for drastic action to 'decarbonize' the world's economy.
It really makes me think. Are we really helping the planet? Or is this some great

decided the world needed saving so he built this massively publicized theory to get people more concerned about the environment?
However, perhaps the theory is true, and perhaps the world is going up in
as we talk about why it may not be.
One thing is clear: we are certainly abusing our planet. Global Warming, true or not, can be a time for us to reconsider our footprint on earth.
