carbon dioxide CO2 is a potent greenhouse gas, causing a climate crisis and warming the Earth. greenhouse gas ghg wraps the Earth like a "blanket" creating a greenhouse effect. The world is getting hotter and hotter by the year.
CO2 CH4 N2O
ghg is produced by humans burning fossil fuels: oil, gas and coal. We are leaking dangerously high levels of methane into the atmosphere. We have made the air so bad that it traps heat in the atmosphere causing global warming, a global emergency.
global levels of carbon dioxide CO2 passed 400ppm. 100ppm is a healthy level, and 300ppm is a hazardous concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. We have exceeded all levels of global greenhouse gas emissions.
|the world's largest emitters of ghg|
China's greenhouse gas emissions exceeded world: China 27%, US 11%, India 6.6%, EU 6.4%
burning fossil gas produces CO2
there is nothing natural about "natural gas", so let's call it what it is, and that's fossil gas.
gas stoves and ovens produce carbon monoxide CO. Carbon monoxide from your gas kitchen range is the common cause for elevated concentrations in the home.
as the gas burners operate they consume oxygen and emit carbon dioxide and water vapor. After a period of time, the oxygen level in the area begins to drop and the flames consume more carbon dioxide and begin generating large quantities of carbon monoxide.
