The greenhouse effect

 

The greenhouse effect is the natural process by which the atmosphere traps some of the Sun's energy, warming the Earth enough to support life.

 

Most mainstream scientists believe a human-driven increase in "greenhouse gases" is increasing the effect artificially.

 

These gases include carbon dioxide, emitted by fossil fuel burning and deforestation, and methane, released from rice paddies and landfill sites.
