?Indiscriminate human activities have strengthened the greenhouse effect resulting in
Global Warming.? Give the relative contribution of various Green House Gases in the
form of a pie chart and explain the fate of the energy of sunlight reaching the earth?s
surface contributing towards Global Warming.

Dear Student

Clouds and gases reflect 1/4th of incoming solar radiation.
Some of them are absorbed.
​​​​​​​Almost half of incoming solar radiation falls on Earth’s surface heating it.
Small amount is reflected backs, Earth’s surface re-emits heat in the form of infra red radiation.  Part of which does not escape into space as atmospheric gases absorb a major fraction of it.
