The Greenhouse Effect

The Greenhouse Effect

PhET Simulation: http://phet.colorado.edu/en/simulation/greenhouse

In this video Paul Andersen explains how the greenhouse effect and greenhouse gases keep our planet warm enough to be habitable. He explains how greenhouse gases keep heat closer to the surface. He finally shows how increases in greenhouse gases may lead to dangerous global warming.
