Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions

Emissions of greenhouses gases (GHGs) from human activities disturb the radiative energy balance of the earth-atmosphere system. They exacerbate the natural greenhouse effect, leading to temperature changes and other consequences for the earth’s climate. Land use changes and forestry also play a role by altering the amount of greenhouse gases captured or released by carbon sinks.
