From droughts to monsoons and extreme weather patterns, climate change may be easy to see and feel, but the issues surrounding it are often far more complex. Global Ideas has come up with a series of films and infographics to answer some of the most pressing problems and explain certain climate concepts and solutions. This time we take a look at what the greenhouse effect is and how it leads to increasing temperatures. We look forward to a lively discussion with you.

    Can someone explain something to me? When you add more particles to the atmosphere, it keeps energy within the system, but does that not reflect more energy back out to space? Doesn't insualtion keep energy from going both in and out? I've heard it compared to a coat, but with a coat the warming is from an internal heat source, and a coat can protect you from extreme outside heat as well.

    It is stunning to hear such nonsense continue to be expressed in tones of knowledge and assurance. I suppose a good barker can be told to say whatever is necessary to sell snake oil.

    The only evidence of any merit whatever is that of 0.8K rise/century, for a CO2 increase of 60% in the same time period. Storm frequency/intensity have not changed, the sea is not rising (Vanuatu is sinking, e.g.) and even the correlation does not comport with good physics for a cause: the Earth is not…and not like a greenhouse. As Fourier put it, "it would be a good model, if all the optics of the atmosphere could be maintained and the atmosphere were a solid. But it is not, and the model is wrong.

    this is good information for biology

  • So the greenhouse effect is good for growing plants in a building but bad for trees in the planet?

    Glass is actually a greenhouse solid: it is – just like CO2 and the other GHGs – transparent to visible light, but absorbs IR (heat) radiation. I'm doing my bit, educating and taking out my windows – are you!?

    The real greenhouse effect with respect to CO2 is: you add CO2 into the greenhouse to grow plants faster and bigger.

    If CO2 can block heat from escaping, then why doesn't the CO2 block the heat from penetrating in the first place?

    we must have a huge ego to think that we can effect our weather
    all our gasses all together aren't equal to one wolcanic eruption.
    so all this green house crap is irrelevant
