Atlantic Canada’s GHG Fact Sheet

2022-11-23T14:20:48+00:00June 1st, 2021|Powerpoint, Publications|

Greenhouse gases (GHG) are essentially 93% water vapour, carbon dioxide and methane. They are emitted from normal human and animal activities, like exhaling. These gases have a natural cycle where nature attempts to balance them in the atmosphere. For example, plants inhale carbon dioxide, while humans and animals exhale it. Open Publication
