How Can Greenhouse Gases Be Removed From Earth´s Atmosphere?

Global Climate Change (49).jpg

“EC. Climate Change Key Terms. Sink = Any process, activity or mechanism which removes a greenhouse gas, an aerosol or a precursor of a greenhouse gas from the atmosphere.”

===========================================================

Note from author: As stated by The Environmental Literacy Council, greenhouse gases in Earth´s atmosphere play a significant role by creating an artificial greenhouse effect and thus warming the Earth´s overall temperature, leading to a number of consequences around the globe, such as melting glaciers and the rising of sea levels. Furthermore, when discussing the release of greenhouse gases into Earth´s atmosphere we refer to a source, while a sink “is a reservoir which takes up a chemical element or compound.” (The Environmental Literacy Council). In the United States, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has since the early 1990´s prepared the Inventory of U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Sinks. This annual report by the EPA reveals detailed statistics and an inventory of U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Sinks from 1990-2015. (EPA 2017).
