What Are Greenhouse Gases?

Global Climate Change (16)

“Gases that contribute to the greenhouse effect include: Water vapor (H20), Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Methane (CH4), Nitrous Oxide (N20), Chlorofluorocarbons.” (NASA. Global Climate Change. Vital Signs of the Planet).

Note from the author: Isn´t it strange how water vapor (H20) is a contributor to climate change? A chemist could probably explain this to us who do not understand why exactly this is the case. Another very interesting fact is that AGRICULTURE is the 3rd (or, fourth, depending on the way we calculate) largest sector contributing to greenhouse gases (which warm our planet), following the energy sector and transportation. Industry is one big player as well. This is why transforming our global energy market into a more sustainable one is so essential. When our energy markets are transformed, other sectors will follow, as a more or less natural consequence. With the research I have conducted in the past years, I have found out that hydroelectric power (which is quite common e.g. here in Finland), is not really a sustainable solution either, despite of being called “a sustainable energy source”. The problem with hydroelectric power is that it changes the natural course of e.g. rivers, and thus affects the natural fish stock in a country where it is widely applied. Anne-Maria Yritys 2017.
