Gases heat the planets that hold more heat in the atmosphere, trapping more heat than they did decades ago, and discoveries have been made.
Monday’s survey from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) found that greenhouse gas emissions will cause 49 percent more heat by 2021 than 1990.
“Our estimates show that the main gases causing climate change continue to rise rapidly, as the effects of climate change become even more pronounced,” Ariel Stein, acting director of NOAA’s Global Monitoring Laboratory, said.
Climate change results from an increase in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, and this increase is mainly due to the human consumption of fossil fuels.
Last year, the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said climate change was “undoubtedly artificial.
Also, it has been linked to extreme drought and heatwaves, severe storms, and rising sea levels.
NOAA has found that carbon dioxide, the most common greenhouse gas that can last up to 1,000 years in space, is the most significant contributor.
They also found that carbon dioxide levels account for 80 percent of global warming, followed by its Annual Greenhouse Gas Index since 1990.
The 2021 increase in the second-largest greenhouse gas, methane, was the most significant increase ever recorded since the early 1980s.
Methane is 30 times more potent than carbon dioxide over a hundred years, but it consumes less time in space.
