Greenhouse Effect Facts Quiz! Trivia - Quiz

What is the greenhouse effect? The greenhouse effect is how heat is trapped close to the surface of the earth by greenhouse gases. Greenhouse vapors consist of carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide. For this quiz, you should know whether the greenhouse effect and ozone depletion are the same things and the name of the lower atmosphere containing greenhouse gases. If you are curious to learn more about the greenhouse effect, this quiz is for you.
