What are Greenhouse Gases?
Greenhouse gases are atmospheric gases that trap infrared radiation emitted from the earth, lower atmosphere, or clouds or aerosols and, as a result, cause positive radiative forcing (which means they enhance global warming). Many of these gases are naturally occurring and are essential to life on earth arm.gov/education/studyhall/globalwarmi... Global Warming
Global warming and climate change are terms for the observed century-scale rise in the average temperature of the Earth's climate system and its related effects. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_warming Global Warming (The Warming of the Earth) - The Woods Hole Research Center

This NOVA Online and FRONTLINE report examines the science and politics of global warming and what climatologists really know about the greenhouse effect. pbs.org/wgbh/warming/ Global Warming Webquest
In this Webquest activity, students assume roles of scientist, business leader, or policy maker. The students then collaborate as part of a climate action team and learn how society and the environment might be impacted by global warming. https://www.climate.gov/teaching/resources/global-...
