This storyboard does not have a description.
I found that the bowl 2, the bowl with CO2, heated up 0.8 degrees more than bowl 1. Also, bowl 2 was continuously warmer than bowl 1.
The CO2 absorbs the lamp's heat and radiation and then reflects it, which warms up the air, and therefore heats up the water.
It works the same way for the ocean too. The additional man-made greenhouse gases absorb the sun's infrared radiation and reflect it, heating up the atmosphere.
The atmosphere, warmer than usual, then increases the temperature of the ocean.
But how does this relate back to human action resulting in climate change?
There have been excessive amounts of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere recently, due to factories and vehicle exhaust.
The more greenhouse gases are present, the more radiation is absorbed, and the warmer the atmosphere is.
Oh, it's like the study done by the NOAA National Climatic Data Center that shows that temperatures have increased unnaturally in the past 30 years.
