The Greenhouse effect by Robert Gell( Visual )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Burning fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas adds more carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. This colourless, odourless, naturally occurring gas turns the atmosphere into a giant greenhouse, trapping more of the sun's heat and raising the temperature each year. So far, estimates suggest the temperature has risen by half a degree centigrade, but by the year 2050 it could be up by three or four degrees. Many things will change in a chain reaction: sea level; crop growth; rainfall. There appears to be no simple solutions because the greenhouse effect is caused by by one of the most basic of human activities - the generation of power
