What is the greenhouse effect?

Answer

The greenhouse effect is the way in which heat is trapped close to the surface of the Earth by “greenhouse gases”. These heat - trapping gases can be thought of as a blanket wrapped around the Earth, which keeps it tastier than it without them. Greenhouse gases include carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxides. An increase in the content of such gases would lead to a situation of global warming.
