Gases in the atmosphere such as carbon dioxide do what the roof of a greenhouse does. During the day, the Sun shines through the atmosphere. Earth's surface warms up in the sunlight. At night, Earth's surface cools, releasing the heat back into the air.
Similarly, it is asked, what is the difference between the greenhouse effect and the hole in the ozone layer?
Ozone is a component of the Earth's atmosphere that serves to protect us against the harmful rays of the Sun, while Greenhouse Gases are multiple chemicals that mixes with the ozone layer, and traps heat that should have been dissipated in space, but instead, is reflected back to the surface of the Earth; thus
How is the ozone a greenhouse gas?
A greenhouse gas is a gas in an atmosphere that absorbs and emits radiant energy within the thermal infrared range. This process is the fundamental cause of the greenhouse effect. The primary greenhouse gases in Earth's atmosphere are water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and ozone.
Do chlorofluorocarbons contribute to the greenhouse effect?
"Conventional thinking says that the emission of human-made non-CFC gases such as carbon dioxide has mainly contributed to global warming. "My calculations of CFC greenhouse effect show that there was global warming by about 0.6 °C from 1950 to 2002, but the earth has actually cooled since 2002.
