Answer: Greenhouse Gases

Greenhouse gases are a group of compounds that are able to trap heat in the atmosphere, Keeping the Earth’s surface warmer than it would be if they were not present.   Greenhouse gases such as water vapor, methane and carbon dioxide stop heat escaping from the Earth into space. An increased greenhouse effect can lead to global warming and climate change.

RE: Gas Which causes Global Warming


Human activity is increasing the concentrations of some in the atmosphere, The principal forcing greenhouse gases are:
Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Methane (CH4)
Nitrous oxide (N2O)
Fluorinated gases

RE: Gas Which causes Global Warming


CO2 si the greenhouse gas most commonly produced by human activities and its responsible for 64% of man-made global warming.
Other greenhouse gases are emitted in smaller quantities, but they trap heat far more effectively than CO2.
Methane is responsible for 17% of man made global warming,
Nitrous oxide for 6%.
