A greenhouse gas ( GHG or GhG) is a gas that absorbs and emits radiant energy within the thermal infrared range, causing the greenhouse effect. [1] The primary greenhouse gases in Earth's atmosphere are water vapor ( H 2 O ), carbon dioxide (CO 2 ), methane ( CH4 ), nitrous oxide ( N2O ), and ozone .

Greenhouse Gas Example:

California set a record for greenhouse gas reductions in 2020, but it means nothing.  The quantity of carbon dioxide spewed by record-setting wildfires that same year effectively erased almost two decades of emission reductions on the part of the world’s fifth — and soon to be fourth — largest economy.
