Greenhouse Effect and Global Warming

a) Greenhouse gases-list major greenhouse gases and their percentage presence in earth atmosphere. List the name(s) of the satellite(s) sent by NASA/European Space Agency to earth orbit and how these satellites collect the info on greenhouse gases, what kind of data has been collected so far. Provide your opinion with supporting evidence on the sources of these greenhouse gases.

b) Greenhouse Effect-explain the physical principles behind Greenhouse Effect and its pros and coms. List the data collected over last 100 years on ocean, air, land temperature change vs increase of greenhouse gases in earth atmosphere. Give your opinions with supporting evidence on the relationship of the rising temperature with the increase of greenhouse gases in earth atmosphere.

c) Evidence of global climate change. Is climate change due to rising temperature of ocean, land and air?

d) Consequences of rising temperature (ocean, land and air) and its impact on environment and human society.

e) The core principles and measures of the Paris Agreement (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paris_Agreement 链接到外部网站。). What kind of role USA would resume and what you could do slow down, or even reverse, this potentially devastating trend of global climate change.

Question 1

The Greenhouse gases will be the gases which not only absorb but will also emanate infrared radiation. On Earth’s atmosphere, the greenhouse gases which can be found will include water vapor, methane, carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, chlorofluorocarbons, Ozone (O3), and hydrofluorocarbons. The concentration of the gases will rely on some factors which will include the human activities and nature. Over the last hundred years, the level of the greenhouses gases has grown over time.  The historical measurements which have been taken over more than a hundred thousand years show that the concentration of the gases before then was quite little when compared to the existing level.
