Now, over the next few weeks, we are gonna focus on carbon and its role in what’s known as the green house effect. Everyone knows what that is right? But let’s make sure anyway. Yes, Carly?
The green house effect is when gases in earth’s atmosphere act like the glass in a greenhouse or hothouse. They trap in heat which warms up the earth.
Hmm…Water vapor. Carbon Dioxide.
Right. Carbon Dioxide. We hear a lot about carbon these days. No? Carbon emissions, carbon burning, leaving a carbon footprint. So it’d be easy to assume that any form of carbon burning is necessarily a bad thing.
