Asked in Meteorology and Weather
Why is temperature a factor that influences the natural vegetation in a place?
Temperature is a major influence in the natural vegetation in an ecosystem. Plants that are natural to the environment need the specific temperatures in the environment to thrive. For example, tropical plants require the high temperature of the environment they grow in to thrive. ...

Asked in Natural Gas
Is natural gas the major cause of the greenhouse effect?
In terms of greenhouse effect, natural gas is more benign than coal or oil, because it provides a greater heating effect per unit of carbon dioxide produced. It is therefore not the major cause of the greenhouse effect. ...
Asked in Global Warming, Pollution, Ozone Layer
What is the major cause of global warming?
The major cause of global warming is the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide that man has been producing by burning fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas). This extra carbon has been safely underground for millions of years. Now we have dug it up and burnt it, releasing all the carbon dioxide. This has upset the earth's natural carbon cycle which helps the greenhouse effect to keep the planet warm. All the extra carbon in the atmosphere is trapping more and more heat...
What has been the major cause of the change in carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere?
The major cause of the change in levels is the burning of fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas). This releases extra carbon dioxide that has been hidden underground for millions of years, and it is this extra CO2 that is causing global warming. ...
