What is causing the heat to be trapped on the earth?

    heat is being insulated on the planet moreso now because of the higher content of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere attributed to human pollution. carbon dioxide and methane are the main greenhouse gases, which prevent heat from escaping into space and allows for the suns rays to be absorbed and trapped.

    Greenhouse gases as the name is meant to reflect are what trap heat in the Earths atmosphere. These gases, such as carbon dioxide, methane and nitrogen dioxide, let heat into the Earths atmosphere in the form of the sun’s rays but don’t allow the heat to radiate out into space afterwards. This is the same way that the glass walls of a green house work, letting light in but not letting heat out, and that is how the term got associated with this effect.
