    The Greenhouse Effect The greenhouse effect is a natural process in which the Earth experiences a rise in temperature. When the sun’s energy reaches the atmosphere of the Earth, some of the energy is reflected back to space and green house gases radiate the remainder. The energy, which is absorbed, allows life on earth by keeping the earth temperature at around 33 degrees Celsius warmer than it would be. The green house gases include water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and…
