Greenhouse effect: The greenhouse effect is a natural process that occurs when certain gases in the Earth's atmosphere trap some of the heat radiated from the planet's surface, raising its temperature. This process is essential for life on Earth, as it keeps the planet warm enough to support liquid water. See also Climate change.

Political Philosophy on Greenhouse Effect - Dictionary of Arguments

Mause I 439
Greenhouse Effect/Political Theories: While the connection between power plant emissions and forest dieback among experts ((s) in the 1980s) was still controversial, this did not apply with regard to the causes of the so-called greenhouse effect (Weidner and Mez 2008, p. 362 (1); Siebert 1986, p. 7 (2)). There was a broad social consensus that climate change is firstly one of the major challenges facing society, secondly that CO2 emissions from power plants are the primary cause of climate change, and thirdly that the industrial nations in particular are responsible for combating it (Weidner and Mez 2008, pp. 362 et seq. (3)).
