Some of it is absorbed by greenhouse gases, preventing it from leaving the atmosphere, a bit like…

… intensified the naturally occurring greenhouse gas effect, trapping more heat than would naturally be the case. This is leading to global warming and causing a shift in weather patterns, which we term climate change. 16 Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the most significant greenhouse gas as it is emitted in greatest quantity by human activity and remains in the atmosphere for hundreds of years.
