Climate Change - Environmental Indicator

An indicator represents the state of certain environmental conditions over a given area and a specified period of time.
Indicators increase our understanding of the causes and effects of climate change. Environmental indicators are a key tool for evaluating existing and future programs and providing sound science for decision-making.

The Greenhouse Effect The Earth receives energy from the sun, then radiates much of this energy back toward space. However, certain gases in the atmosphere, called greenhouse gases, absorb some of the outgoing energy and trap it in the atmosphere. This "greenhouse effect" occurs naturally, but human activities have substantially increased the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, causing the Earth to trap more heat. This in turn is changing the Earth's climate. U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions In the United States, greenhouse gas emissions caused by human activities increased by 14 percent from 1990 to 2008. Carbon dioxide accoun…
