Define: Greenhouse Gases
So often we hear words thrown around in speeches, bumper stickers and conversation and we all nod along, but aren't 100% sure as to what they mean. Well Urban Branches is here to make sure you know exactly what you or someone else is talking about!
Gas produced by the burning of fossil fuels, like when we drive or use electricity. What happens is those gases absorb sun radiation and trap heat in the atmosphere. Plants & rain can help counteract this effect but in the grand scheme isn't doing enough. We are burning too many fossil fuels! This imbalance can lead to gradual increases in temperature (both air & ocean) which could eventually lead to major weather related disasters.
