The greenhouse effect is the trapping of heat in the atmosphere. Without the gases in the air, heat from the sun would bounce back into space. Too much gas in the air causes too much heat to be absorbed into the atmosphere, therefore disrupting the earth’s equilibrium (balanced state).
How do gases and pollution affect the earth's atmospheric pressure?
