Dynamic Earth – The Greenhouse Effect

This video and activity pack will help you to understand the greenhouse effect and how human action is changing the climate. The Greenhouse effect is why increases in greenhouse gasses such as carbon dioxide cause the planet to heat up. We call things which cause greenhouse gasses sources and things which absorb them sinks. Curriculum…
