Infographic - The effects of increased greenhouse gas emissions

Increases in the amount of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the Earth's atmosphere enhances the greenhouse effect. The heat is trapped through a process called the greenhouse effect. The result of the enhanced greenhouse effect is global warming which causes climate change.

Increases in the different greenhouse gases also have other effects including:

  • Ocean acidification
  • Changes to plant growth and nutrition levels
  • Smog and ozone pollution
  • Ozone layer depletion
The effects of increased greenhouse gas emissions

Each day new greenhouse gases emissions further accelerate these changes. Reducing our greenhouse gas emissions can have a real impact and fight the effects of greenhouse gas pollution.
