Test your knowledge and earn 10 points.
Here’s a quick refresher from high school science: a “greenhouse gas” is a type of gas that traps heat in the atmosphere and warms the planet. Carbon dioxide, also known as CO2, is just one type of greenhouse gas. When CO2 is released through natural processes and human activities, like volcanic eruptions or driving a car, the emissions contribute to the Earth’s rising temperatures and drive climate change.
