Problem 26RQ

What would be the consequence of completely eliminating the greenhouse effect?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 26RQ By the greenhouse effect the radiation gained by earth makes the earth warm. Without the greenhouse gases the surface temperature of earth would have reached below a critical temperature, where it would have impossible to have any species here. The gases present in the atmosphere radiates energy in all direction, from which some energy get absorbed by the surface. If we eliminate the greenhouse effect completely, our planet would reach below that critical temperature where life could not sustain. So the greenhouse effect is a need but nowadays burning of fossils, human activities and clearing forests have increased the temperature a lot. This is the cause of global warming.
