.Which gas creates a greenhouse effect in the atmosphere


Best Answer

Explanation:

Carbon-dioxide is the main greenhouse gas which creates a greenhouse effect in the atmosphere. 

Carbon dioxide is increasing in the atmosphere due to the excessive use of fossil fuels.

They are called greenhouse gasses as they work like a glass of a greenhouse and allows visible light to pass through it, but traps long wave radiations leading to an increase in temperature of the earth.

Besides carbon dioxide, other gasses like methane, nitrous oxide and water vapour also act as greenhouse gases. 

 

Final Answer:

carbon -dioxide is the main gas responsible for creating the greenhouse effect in the atmosphere.

Besides carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and water vapour is responsible for the greenhouse effect. These all gasses occur naturally.
