What is the greenhouse effect? First there is speculation on whether there is such an event as the greenhouse effect. Some scientists say that there is, while some scientists say that it is just the cycle of the Earth as far as the weather. The greenhouse effect is what we call the result of harmful levels of gases in the atmosphere that don’t allow all the heat to escape the atmosphere. The results of this can be higher temperatures, changing sea levels and changes to the weather patterns.
The most harmful gas that is being released is called “chlorofluorocarbon”. This gas is the highest level of gas with the harmful effect of not letting the proper amount of heat to escape the atmosphere. This is also the gas that affects the ozone layer. The ozone layer is the layer in the atmosphere that protects us from harmful radiation from the sun. We also have to watch the levels of methane and carbon dioxide. All or any of these gases in high levels can cause more of the heat to be trapped in the atmosphere.
What can be done to slow or stop this effect? The best thing that can be done to stop this effect is to slow the release of these harmful gases into the atmosphere. How do we do this? The first way is to stop using fossil fuels. Fossil fuels being oil, gas or coal. How do we do this? First we need to slow down our use of fossil fuels. There is research into this, but far too slowly for most people. We are finally starting to see hybrid vehicles. These are vehicles that use both electricity and gasoline. This allows for higher mileage with smaller amounts of gasoline.
There is a lot of speculation on this type of technology. Some people believe that this technology is coming too slowly. People believe that oil tycoons and gasoline manufacturers are purposely slowing the research, so that they can continue to make money. I believe this myself to a point. Research does take time as well as manufacturing of the vehicles. But i
