The diagram illustrates the way in which greenhouse gases are produced and further how these gases trap heat from the sun.
One of the most common way gases are released into the earth’s atmosphere is by means of transport. The engine of a car, plane, motorised boat or other vehicles release toxic substances. The pollutants also meet with extra carbon dioxide, evacuated from power plants or factories which burn fossil fuels, forming a clutter of man-made pollutants. The process is fastened also by the marring deforestation, which logs trees that could have absorbed the man-produced carbon dioxide.
The second stage takes place in the atmosphere, where a part of the energy received from the sun should be reflected back to the outer space. Instead, the greenhouse gases trap the heat, warming up the environment.
Overall, it is easy to notice that pollution itself is a complex process, with roots in the mankind actions.
