Causes of the Greenhouse Effect

Causes of the greenhouse effect have to do with the levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

Greenhouse gases are

* water vapour (63%)

* carbon dioxide (22%)

* methane (9%)

* ozone (6%)

And they are released to the atmosphere by

* burning fossil fuel (in factories, power stations, buildings and cars)

* rainforest destruction (particularly burning)

* production of cement

Carbon dioxide is one of the worst of the gases.
