The main gas is water vapor, which is responsible for up between 40% and 70% of greenhouse warming. However as this occurs naturally it is not possible to regulate it. The next one is carbon dioxide (26%), then methane (9%) and ozone (7%). There are others too, but these are the main ones. There are many gases which contribute to the greenhouse effect. Some have a more potent effect than others. The following are considered to be greenhouse gases, the number after the name indicates the equivalent greenhouse gas effect compared to carbon dioxide (the principal man-made greenhouse gas)

* Water vapor (H2O) = ? * Carbon dioxide (CO2) = 1 * Methane (CH4) = 21 * Nitrous oxide (N2O) = 298 * Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF6) = 22,200 * Chlorinated fluorocarbons (CFC's) = 1000 to 9000


1. Water vapor is an odd one in the list as it is naturally occurring. It may be responsible for more than 30% of the greenhouse effect.

2. CFC's include many different compounds.
Carbon Dioxide, Nitrous Oxide, Water Vapor, and Methane.

Carbon dioxide is the primary greenhouse gas by volume and overall influence. Methane (CH4) is a more powerful greenhouse gas, but exists in our atmosphere in much smaller quantities. Nitrous oxide (N2O) is another greenhouse gas.

These gases are not associated with each other. Additional CO2 (at present) is liberated primarily via combustion of fossil fuels.
