GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS AND GLOBAL WARMING
Greenhouse gases are normally occurring gases that allow life to exist on Planet Earth. They keep the planet warm enough for life to thrive by trapping some of the suns warming rays inside our atmosphere. However, unnaturally high levels of greenhouse gasses can warm the planet to unhealthy temperatures which affects all life on Planet Earth.
Over the last 100 years, greenhouse gas emissions world-wide has increased exponentially due to the burning of fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas. The City of Antioch has a goal of reducing our carbon emissions and seeks the help of the local business, residential and municipal community in order to reduce our dependence upon fossil fuels and at the same time reduce our carbon emissions.
