Observe the Greenhouse Effect in a Jar

Energy Science Activity: Observe the Greenhouse Effect in a Jar. In the jar, solar energy (light) comes in and becomes thermal energy (heat) that can't escape back out through the glass house.

The greenhouse effect occurs when Earth's atmosphere traps solar radiation because of the presence of certain gases, which causes temperatures to rise.

What Is the Greenhouse Effect?

The greenhouse effect occurs when Earth's atmosphere traps solar radiation because of the presence of certain gases, which causes temperatures to rise. This causes global warming.

The greenhouse effect is a process by which thermal radiation from a planetary surface is absorbed by atmospheric greenhouse gases, and is re-radiated in all directions. As a result, the average surface temperature is higher than it would be if heated by solar radiation only. Earth’s natural greenhouse effect makes life as we know it possible. However, human activities, primarily the burning of fossil fuels and clearing of forests, have greatly intensified the natural greenhouse effect.

Climate change is the greatest threat that the world is facing today. Greenhouse effect prevents the heat radiation from earth which causes rising in land and ocean temperature. Major greenhouse gases are H2O, CO2, CH4, and O3. China, USA, India, Russia, and Brazil are the major greenhouse gas emitters. Major sources of greenhouse gas emission are transportation, fossil fuel combustion, industrialization, electricity generation etc. There are many impacts of climate change like increase in…

Impacts of Climate Change Will Make You More Worried

Climate change is the greatest threat that the world is facing today. Greenhouse effect prevents the heat radiation from earth which causes rising in land and ocean temperature. Major greenhouse gases are and Let's work together to fix this issue!

The Greenhouse Effect Poster

From our Geography poster range, the The Global Warming Poster is a great educational resource that helps improve understanding and reinforce learning.

CLIMATE CHANGE MITIGATION: This refers to the efforts to reduce or prevent emission of greenhouse gases. An example of this would be to change the lights in your house to LED lightbulbs rather than regular ones.

The Greenhouse Effect (Video for younger kids, from EPA) http://www.epa.gov/climatechange/kids/basics/today/greenhouse-effect.html

Video: This video from the EPA helps students understand the concept of the "Greenhouse Effect".

When presented with the overwhelming evidence that the planet is warming, many people react by asking "but how can we be sure that we’re causing the warming?" It turns out that the observed global warming has a distinct human fingerprint on it.

Skeptical Science examines global warming and answers all of your questions about whether or not global warming is real.

In 1917, Alexander Graham Bell predicted that “the unchecked burning of fossil fuels would have a sort of greenhouse effect” on the planet, and argued for the use of alternative energy sources such as solar energy.
