Is there a direct link between greenhouse gases and global temperatures?

    Yes. Greenhouse gases (water vapor, carbon dioxide, ozone, and methane) absorb infrared rays from the sun. They regulate our planet’s temperatures by trapping heat. Without these gases, scientists believe that earth would not have a suitable climate to sustain life.

    Without doubt, there is much link between greenhouse gases and the global temperatures. Such gases as Carbon IV oxide, water vapour, methane and so on tend to retain heat from the sun. This makes the long term radiation to return to the earth instead of allowing it to escape into the atmosphere. However, the excess of these gases in the atmosphere increases global warming which tends to melt the ice trappaed in the polar region giving rise to ocean upsurge and other climatic changes.
