  1. Water vapour is produced from lakes, rivers and oceans. It is a natural greenhouse gas and we cannot control it.
  2. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is produced naturally in the carbon cycle from trees, land and ocean. Extra CO2 is produced by burning fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas).
  3. Methane is produced from fermenting and rotting vegetation, and from ruminant animals like cattle. Global warming is causing tundra and frozen lakes to melt, releasing frozen methane.

Water vapor makes up roughly 75% of all greenhouse gas forcing. It makes up roughly 95% of all of the green house gases in our atmosphere. This is done through the evaporation of water and is a natural process.

The second largest force in terms of green houses gases is CO2. This makes up 9 to 26% of all green house heating. 94% of this gas is produced through the rotting of dead plants. Man is responsible for the remaining 6% of this gas. Man produces this gas by burning that material that would rot or by the burning of fossil fuels to mover cars, heat homes or fuel industry. The largest single portion of this is produced (over 50%) by heating and powering homes. Man also prevents a great deal of CO2 from being produced by using lumber that is cut from forests. This causes a artificial carbon sink. The wood inside a structure decays slower and thereby does not enter the atmosphere.

The remaining gases make up virtually no additional heating.

The largest source of removing CO2 from our atmosphere is our oceans. They remove 70% of the CO2.

Having said this we can determine how these gases are made. 80 to 90% of all greenhouse gases are made by water evaporating from the oceans. Another 10 to 20% are made from rotting vegetation or life forms that have died and are decaying.

The remaining 0.28% is man made. Over half of this is due to our homes. Heating, air conditioning and power for our homes make up OVER 50% of what we create. The remaining 0.13% (or other half from man) is due to our transportation needs. These includes bringing vegetables and fruit from other areas to our local tables.

Another example of man producing CO2 is to exhale. Another issue such as METHANE would be through farting. Man is not alone as the animals contribute to green house gases as well. As for the planets, they love us and take in the CO2 and release another greenhouse gas we all call OXYGEN.

  1. Take a look at H2O and let it evaporate into HYDROGEN and OXYGEN. When the gases reach altitude they bond and form rain clouds and then come back down as H2O.

Production of greenhouse gasses?

The production of greenhouse gasses is harmful to the environment, causing an enhanced (or accelerated) greenhouse effect which is causing global warming. The gases emitted include methane and carbon dioxide.


Greenhouse is causing the earth heating up?

Yes, Greenhouse gasses are causing the Earth to heat up. As the level of Greenhouse gasses in our atmosphere continue to rise, so will the average temperature of our planet.

Can a planet with no atmosphere have a greenhouse effect?

No. The greenhouse effect is a consequence of heat-trapping gasses.


Is the greenhouse affect a recycling project?

No, the greenhouse effect is the effect of certain gasses such as carbon dioxide and methane (called greenhouse gasses) trapping heat near earth's surface. There is a natural greenhouse effect that keeps earth from becoming too cold, but there is some concern that human actions may be putting extra greenhouse gasses into the air and causing average temperatures to rise.
