Greenhouse Gases/Global Warming Imp for UGC NET/SSC/KVC/DSSB/UPTET/CTET Part 1

Greenhouse gases are gases that can trap heat coming from solar radiation. They get their name from greenhouses.

A greenhouse is a structure with walls and roof made chiefly of transparent material, such as glass, in which plants requiring regulated climatic conditions are grown. That’s exactly how greenhouse gases act. Without them, our planet would be too cold, and life as we know it would not exist.
