Climate change: Changes in many climatic factors. Global warming: The rise in global temperatures.
Energy Balance Energy gain from solar radiation = The energy loss by the Earth’s surface. This energy balance determine the Earth’s average surface temperature. Earth emits energy in the form of Infra red radiation.
Greenhouse Effect Certain atmospheric gases trap some of the infrared radiation that escapes from the Earth, making the Earth warmer than it would be otherwise. This effect is called “ Greenhouse Effect”. The gases cause this effect are called “Greenhouse Gases”.
Greenhouse Gas es Carbon dioxide Methane Nitrous oxide Water vapor
