This keeps the temperature of the Earth higher than it would be if direct heating by the Sun was the only source of warming. some of it is absorbed which warms the ground and some bounces back to space as heat. This is a natural process. So the more greenhouse gases you have in the atmosphere. factories and homes. The greenhouse is a gas in an atmosphere that absorbs and emits radiation within the thermal infrared range. When sunlight reaches the surface of the Earth. scientists recognized that carbon dioxide levels were increasing. this is what we call the greenhouse effect. human activities have led to an increase in the amounts of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere which is now trapping too much heat. At this time people began to use fossil fuels extensively. The scenario of global warming also intensify the effects of El Nino. increasingly threatened by human disasters occur frequently. Greenhouse gases trap heat in the troposphere. and the global warming they cause affects the Earth's climate systems. El Nino will affect the global climate resulted in some parts of drought and flooding some more. This causes the carbon dioxide content increases. what is considered the 6 . Hurricanes. but in recent decades. nitrous oxide and fluorinated gases and extra quantities of this are released into the atmosphere as a result of burning fossil fuels as a source of energy in power stations. In the latter part of the twentieth century. droughts and diseases related to the environment grew increasingly frequent and widespread threat. This is especially true of carbon dioxide. The greenhouse effect is a phenomenon that occurs as a result of air pollution.OUMH2103 PART B Over the past 10 years. especially in respect to drought and flood. In fact. the part of the atmosphere where weather occurs. floods. Plants serve to remove some of the carbon dioxide from the atmosphere by absorbing it through their leaves. However. History of the greenhouse effect began in the days of the Industrial Revolution. it continues to add up which then warms up the Earth. as large areas of forest are being felled and have been felled in the Amazon and elsewhere. less carbon dioxide is removed in this way. It is effect increases the temperature of the Earth by trapping heat in our atmosphere. the more heat stays on Earth. Since some of the heat can't escape into space. The use of fossil fuels such as coal and oil from cars and lorries has pushed the levels of carbon dioxide beyond 350 parts per million. Greenhouse gases that are in the atmosphere absorb and then redirect some of this heat back towards the Earth. trees take in carbon dioxide to use during photosynthesis. methane. Carbon dioxide was produced by natural processes such as animals exhaling and eliminated through natural processes for example.

Six billion people now use the earth's natural resources by excessive and uncontrollable. mainly carbon dioxide. This trapped heat will raise the temperature on the surface of the earth.

Educating is not to make them anxious but ask them to act correctly and accurately. 2004 and the floods in Johor is the best lesson.

At this time people began to use fossil fuels extensively. This then will trap heat. AIA will also force animals and plants on land to move to new habitats. causing a larger amount of carbon dioxide to remain in the atmosphere. Global warming will threaten plants and animals. This then will trap heat. Earthquake December 26. Greenhouse effect (greenhouse effect) is associated with a warming effect on the earth's atmosphere.OUMH2103 upper safety limit when burning fussiel fuel. Dilution effect of the block icebergs that have produced the phenomenon of rising sea levels and changes also threaten agricultural productivity and harvest. extinction as scientists showed an increase of 7. 7 . The earth then emits this energy as heat waves and absorbed by air. But mining. which means more events banjir.Gas these gases act like a blanket that will allow heat in. Wave through the air sunlight absorbed by the Earth. If global warming continues. concluded that the greenhouse effect is a phenomenon that occurs because of air pollution. The greenhouse effect occurs because the trapping of heat by greenhouse gases.0 meters above sea level in low-lying areas such as the Kuala Muda (Orissa) and the state will be flooded. Among the several types of greenhouse gases that are commonly found are carbon dioxide. Only 3/10 of Malaysians concerned about environmental issues. fossil fuel consumption and an increasing population have broken that balanced cycle.
