Here is a list of common greenhouse gases:
- Carbon dioxide (CO2)
- Methane (CH4)
- Nitrous oxide (N2O)
- Ozone (O3)
- Fluorinated gases (e.g. hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons, and sulfur hexafluoride)
Greenhouse gases trap heat in the Earth's atmosphere, which can lead to an increase in global temperatures. This process is known as the greenhouse effect. The concentration of greenhouse gases in the Earth's atmosphere has increased significantly in recent years due to human activities, such as the burning of fossil fuels, deforestation, and the use of synthetic fertilizers. The increase in greenhouse gases is a major contributor to climate change.
