  1. It is the carbon dioxide emitted from cars and fossil fuels powering the electric turbines. Carbon dioxide goes to the upper atmosphere, and does not allow heat to escape from Earth: result, is Earth gets hotter.

  2. thank you

  8. Every day activities lead to global warming, because they produce pollution. When gas is burned in a car, it produces CO2, or Carbon Dioxide. This is a Greenhouse gas. It floats up towards the atmosphere, and becomes the atmosphere. This causes the heat from the sun to get trapped, bouncing from the earth to the atmosphere. The sun doesn’t stop producing heat, so the world gets hotter, causing dramatic changes in the temperature from decade to decade.

  11. The heat generated from the cars and electricity send heat waves up into our atmospher causing a mixture of heat which causes global warming.

  17. Mrs. A I do understand why you at trying t catch cheaters but I don't understand why you think every on this sight comes to cheat, and why you have to use that condescending tone in your words, and you do know that we can literally look at the answer on here then change it into are own words and you won't even know. I think you believe your trying to be a good teacher but somethings you say, say otherwise. I know I had a run n sentence and I don't care.

  20. Mrs. A, who the hello kitty do you think you are? Not everyone is on here to cheat. Some people like to have help with studying or just need to check there answers so leave all of us alone. Plus if you didn't want us to cheat, then why are you on here? Most people only come on here to get answers so don't try getting us in trouble. You only say something to make yourself the god guy. Well guess what? It seems that your a cheater too.

  21. Can I just say something? FIRST of all Mrs. A how exactly do you know who we are? I have seen teachers say "I know who you are and will report you to your teacher" but you have not one clue who we are! unless we put our real names you don't know who we are so stop trying to "scare" us with your lies. SECOND of all...……...wait for it...…………………………………..……………………………………………………………………………………...…………………………………………………………………………………………………………….almost there...……………………………………………..…………………………………………………………...………………………….………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………...POTATOES!!!! XD that's all folks lol

  22. Really Mrs.A, So if you are really teacher, your going to give every single student in your class a zero. Now I may not be a master in a science and degree but HAVE SOME COMMON SENSE!! First of all, some of us (like me) have learning disabilities and we need a little extra help from outside of the school and the damn common core in schools don't help, second, Some of us don't use this sight we use it for notes and practice for up coming test and quizzes. Teachers these day don't help as much because half of the students get shoved past our grades. So I suggest you step down from the stage sir and make sure you go to the academy of common sense and do something really helpful, like actually staying on the school site and stay there and do the job you were hired to do.

    And there is the option you are a kid using a teachers name, looking for a fight for your amusement. If you are I'll say that's pretty low looking for a fight online like a coward. It easier to fight online then face to face eh?

  23. The most important greenhouse gas is carbon dioxide, which is released whenever people burn fossil fuels to do everyday activities like driving cars, heating buildings, and making electricity. As greenhouse gases build up in the atmosphere, they cause the Earth to trap extra heat, making the planet warmer.

  27. Real teachers come to this site because if a student can figure out how to find the answers to the test, so can we. We honestly want you to learn for yourself. You aren't helping yourself by coming to a web site to get an answer on the test. We don't know who belongs to the handle you use here. But we list all of these essay responses and share them with other teachers to look out for the on the test. So really, Mrs. A is doing you a favor by telling you this answer has been flagged. Instead of just letting you get a zero for an honor code violation. Your education is the most important thing you will ever possess. Don't cheat yourself.
