The rise in temperature the earth experiences because certain gases in the atmosphere trap energy from the sun to warm up the earth.-the greenhouse effect refers to the change in the steady state temperature of a planet or moon by the presence of an atmosphere containing gas that absorbs and emits infrared radiation.[1] greenhouse gases, which include water vapor, carbon dioxide and methane, warm the atmosphere by efficiently absorbing thermal infrared radiation emitted by the earths surface, by the atmosphere itself, and by clouds. as a result of its warmth, the atmosphere also radiates thermal infrared in all directions, including downward to the earths surface. thus, greenhouse gases trap heat within the surface-troposphere system
