Why are only certain gases called Greenhouse Gases?



  1. 0 Votes

    Greenhouse Gases are those gasses prevalent in the Earth’s atmosphere that have the ability to trap heat in the atmosphere much like the glass in a greenhouse traps heat inside a greenhouse. The major greenhouse gases include water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and fluorinated gases. Other gases are not labeled “greenhouse gases” because they either do block heat the way these other gases do or they are not present in significant enough quantities to contribute to the greenhouse effect.
