Question 1 Report
Which of the following sources of energy contributes to green-house effect?
Natural gas contributes to the greenhouse effect. When natural gas is burned, it produces carbon dioxide (CO2), which is a greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming. The combustion of natural gas also releases small amounts of other greenhouse gases, such as methane. Methane is a potent greenhouse gas that is about 25 times more effective at trapping heat than carbon dioxide over a 100-year time span. Therefore, the use of natural gas as a source of energy contributes to the greenhouse effect.
