Byline: Julian Hodge
Greenhouse gas theory predicts that if the level of atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases increases, global temperature rises because it is more difficult for the heat of the sun to escape the earth's atmosphere.
A key greenhouse gas is carbon dioxide, which is primarily influenced by carbon emissions due to energy production.
Although many climatologists disagree, it has become an accepted fact that carbon emissions threaten to r se global temperature during the 21st century by 3-4 degrees C after increasing by about 0.7 degrees during the 20th century.
Greenhouse gas theory was the driving force behind the Kyoto Accords, the EU decision to limit …
