Title: Statement on global climate change before the Subcommittee on Energy and Power, United States House of Representatives

Statement on global climate change before the Subcommittee on Energy and Power, United States House of Representatives Greenhouse gases are gases which are effectively transparent to incoming sunlight but absorb infrared radiation escaping to space and thereby warm the surface of the Earth. Human activities result in the release of greenhouse and related gases in such quantities that they are changing the composition of the atmosphere. Greenhouse and related gases which human activities release include carbon dioxide (CO{sub 2}), methane (CH{sub 4}) carbon monoxide (CO), nitrous oxide (N{sub 2}O), nitrogen oxides (NO{sub x}), chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and sulphur dioxide (SO{sub 2}). The emission and effects of these gases are detailed in this report.
