Greenhouse gas


What are greenhouse gas emissions?

Greenhouse gas emissions are emissions of gases that contribute to climate change, such as global warming. These gases, including CO2 and N2O (nitrous oxide), trap heat in the atmosphere and cause an increase in the average temperature of the Earth. This increase in temperature over time is what leads to climate change.

Greenhouse gas emissions can come from various sources, such as the combustion of fossil fuels like coal, oil, and gas. Transportation, industrial production, energy production, and waste management are some examples of sources of greenhouse gas emissions. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions is an important part of the fight against climate change, with a global focus on limiting the negative effects of climate change.
