Among the following air pollutants, identify the ones responsible for the greenhouse effect.
1) Carbon dioxide
3) Sulphur dioxide
5) Carbon monoxide
Gases that trap heat in the atmosphere are called greenhouse gases.
While there are several factors that can contribute to global warmings, such as natural changes in the Earth’s inclination and revolution around the Sun, by far the biggest factor contributing to the global warming threat today is due to the emission of greenhouse -—such as carbon dioxide (CO,), methane, ozone, chlorofluorocarbons, water vapor, and nitrous oxide.
