The Greenhouse Gases in the atmosphere, that have become the bogeyman of our times, seems they are not in decline but are rising despite global efforts that have taken most of the industrialized countries of the World. The emission of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere proceeds much faster than the 90s. It is what has been emphasized today by the U.S. Institute Carnagie, at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. The emission of carbon into the atmosphere has increased by 3.5 percent per year since 2000, a percentage higher than 0.9 per cent of the 90s.
But let we see in some detail what are the Greenhouse Gas and how to fight them.
Greenhouse gases are atmospheric gases that absorb infrared radiation causing the greenhouse effect. Natural greenhouse gases include the vapor of water, carbon dioxide, methane, nitric oxide and ozone. Certain activities, however, raise the level of these gases and other gases in the release of greenhouse exclusively anthropogenic origin.
The water vapor is present in the atmosphere as a result of evaporation from all water sources (seas, rivers, lakes, etc..) and as a product of various combustion. Carbon dioxide is mainly released into the atmosphere when solid waste is burned, fossil fuels (oil, gasoline, natural gas and coal), wood and wood products. Methane is emitted during the production and transport of coal, natural gas and mineral oil.
If you look at data on the presence of Greenhouse Gases in the atmosphere during the last 300 years have seen a dramatic increase since the Industrial Revolution onwards, the correlation between industrialization and Greenhouse Gases in the atmosphere is really evident.
As we could fight the presence of Greenhouse Gases in the atmosphere? Mainly those starting to limit human activities that generate greenhouse gases through the use of Renewable Sources of Energy and by Energy Saving.
Look at this Video discussing the importance of both targeted actions to reduce emissions and partnership opportunities between developed and developing state and provincial governments. Targeted actions can take the form of technology transfer, best practices sharing, and market-based approaches to reducing emissions or other actions that provide mutually beneficial outcomes.
