Chemistry Lecture Notes 9/15/16-Climate Change and the Greenhouse Effect The Greenhouse effect is a natural process 1. Visible light enters the greenhouse, 2. Plants and so il absorb light and convert it to infrared radiation, 3. The infrared radiation is tra pped by glass and temperature rises The Greenhouse effect in our atmosphere works the same way: 1. Visible light enters the atmosphere 2. Earth's surface absorbs light and converts it 3. The CO2 traps radiation and the atmospheric temperature rises The greenhouse effect is good for us because it allows the temperature to be warm enough for us to survive However, we are releasing too many gases and this is causing it to get too warm We now refer to the negative process as climate change The average temperature changing by two degr
