Greenhouse Gases

greenhouse gas

Greenhouse Gases Greenhouse Gases and the Greenhouse Effect Greenhouse Gases, or GHG’s are those unwanted gases that exist in our atmosphere and as such contribute to global climate change, either directly or indirectly by trapping the Earth’s heat and making our planet warmer. Although some of these greenhouse gases occur naturally within the atmosphere, the result of human and industrial activity on the Earth has increased their quantity altering and affecting the atmospheric balance. We all know that the Earth’s

Global Warming

Global Warming Global Warming Effects and Causes Global Warming is the generalised term used to describe the incremental rise in the average global temperatures above those temperatures predicted from the patterns of data collected over the past years. The affect of global warming has a significant impact on everything from unpredictable weather patterns and cycles, to the rapid melting of the polar ice caps and as such global warming is disturbing the natural ecosystem of the Earth. Almost all scientists

Carbon Capture and Storage

Carbon Capture and Storage Carbon Capture and Storage of Fossil Fuel Gasses Carbon capture and storage comprises of a range of so-called “low carbon” technologies and schemes that are designed to reduce the harmful environmental affects from burning fossil fuels. As its name suggests, the idea behind carbon capture is to capture and store these emissions before they have chance to damage the environment producing a cleaner technology. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies pitch themselves along side renewable energy

Coal Energy Facts

Coal Energy Facts Coal Energy Facts about Creating Energy from Coal Coal was formed millions of years ago, when the dinosaurs walked the Earth, and today the whole world is dependent on this non-renewable source of fossil fuel energy that can be found just beneath our feet. Coal is classed as a non-renewable energy that gets its name from the fact that once it has been used and burnt as coal energy, it is gone for good, it cannot be

Non-renewable Energy Sources

Non-renewable Energy Sources Non-renewable Energy Sources come from Fossil Fuels Non-renewable energy sources were formed millions of years ago, when dinosaurs walked the Earth. Today the whole world is dependent on these non-renewable sources of energy, more commonly called “Fossil Fuels“, that can be found beneath our feet deep within the Earth. Fossil fuels such as coal, petroleum oil and natural gas which are all natural resources created within the Earth, are becoming more scarce daily and cannot therefore be
