List the main causes of increase in concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
The main causes of increase in concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere are:
- Coal and wood, when burnt as domestic fuels, release carbon dioxide gas into the atmosphere.
- Thermal power plants use the heat produced, through burning of coal, to generate electricity. This leads to enormous release of carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide gases into the atmosphere.
- Indiscriminate deforestation causes imbalance in the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
