Emissions of Greenhouse Gases, 1980-2005 [4]
Measured in Global Warming Potential (GWP)

Chart.

earth bulletCarbon Dioxide (CO2) {120}
Carbon Dioxide is one of the top manmade producing greenhouse gases in the United States. Greenhouse gases absorb and trap heat in the earth's atmosphere, thus warming the surface of the planet, causing the average temperature to increase. The result of this global warming could produce a significant impact on the environment, such as: the rise in sea level would cause flooding of low-lying areas, climatic zones will shift towards the poles by 150-550 km in the mid-latitude region, which would cause ecosystems to decline or become extinct, there will be greater regional food shortages, water resources will become more scarce, and the physical infrastructure will be damaged. On a personal note, for each 1 degree Celsius increase in temperature caused by carbon dioxide emissions, the resulting air pollution could lead to more than 20,000 deaths a year worldwide and many more cases of respiratory illness and asthma [3]

earth bulletMethane (CH4) {9}
Methane is over 20 times more harmful to the environment than CO2 emissions

earth bulletNitrous Oxide (N2O) {1}
While its radiative warming effect is substantially less than CO2, nitrous oxide's persistence in the atmosphere, when considered over a 100 year period, per unit of weight, has 296 times more impact on global warming than that per mass unit of carbon dioxide (CO2) [7]
