ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the greenhouse effect and its impact on the environment. Back in 1824, French mathematician and physicist Jean Baptiste Joseph Fourier discovered the process we now call the greenhouse effect. The natural greenhouse effect is essential to the maintenance of life on Earth. The problem that appears to be occurring today is the anthropogenic greenhouse effect. That is the scientific word for human activities, such as the burning of fossil fuels, that add to the natural heating. INSET: IT'S IN THE WATER.
