How does rising content of CO2 responsible for increasing temperature of earth?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 04 Jun, 2014, 01:23: PM
Expert Answer
The sun sends its rays to the earth. Some of these rays are absorbed by the earth atmosphere and some radiations are reflected back. CO2 traps heat and does not allow it to escape into space. This effect keeps earth's atmosphere warm. Rising amount of CO2 causes more heat rays to be trapped in the atmosphere. This result in excessive heating of earth's atmosphere, therefore, temperature rises.
