• Of course GREENHOUSE GASES cause global warming

    The green house gases create harmful products that destroy the ozone layer. The ozone layer protects our Earth from the sun's UV rays. Near the arctic circle the ice is melting because the ozone above the arctic circle is dying. WE need to stop green house gases this instant, now!

  • Of course they do!

    It has been scientifically proven that greenhouse gases such as the gas released from coal causes global warming. These gases make the atmosphere thicker and this traps the heat and makes the earth warmer. This theory has been proven by scientists so don't argue. 6 more words needed. 2 needed.

  • Greenhouse Gases Cause Global Warming

    Yes, greenhouse gases cause global warming. There is a scientific consensus to support this supposition. What that means is that the scientific community has arrived at a position of general agreement regarding this claim, which in turn means that many, many articles have been peer reviewed to ensure their accuracy on this statement.

  • yes it is

    Most climate scientists agree the main cause of the current global warming trend is human expansion of the "greenhouse effect"1 -- warming that results when the atmosphere traps heat radiating from Earth toward space.
    Certain gases in the atmosphere block heat from escaping. Long-lived gases, remaining semi-permanently in the atmosphere, which do not respond physically or chemically to changes in temperature are described as "forcing" climate change whereas gases, such as water, which respond physically or chemically to changes in temperature are seen as "feedbacks."
    Gases that contribute to the greenhouse effect include:

    Water vapor. The most abundant greenhouse gas, but importantly, it acts as a feedback to the climate. Water vapor increases as the Earth's atmosphere warms, but so does the possibility of clouds and precipitation, making these some of the most important feedback mechanisms to the greenhouse effect.Carbon dioxide (CO2). A minor but very important component of the atmosphere, carbon dioxide is released through natural processes such as respiration and volcano eruptions and through human activities such as deforestation, land use changes, and burning fossil fuels. Humans have increased atmospheric CO2 concentration by a third since the Industrial Revolution began. This is the most important long-lived "forcing" of climate change.

Why are they called greenhouse gases if they don't cause warming?
